WE ARE SUNDAY LEAGUE

A Bittersweet, Real-Life Story from Football's Grass Roots

 

This is the real-life story of Wizards FC, a team of former school friends who - with a few star ringers - slogged their way through mud, rain, skinheads and Staffordshire bull terriers (and their business) to the summit of Sunday League football in north London.

It’s about growing up, friendship, being a man (sometimes), injuries and passion. Ewan Flynn brings alive the bobbly pitches, the scars of professional careers cut short, the thrill of lifting Sunday League silverware, even the dream-come-true of captaining your country against the World Champions in a UEFA European Championship qualifier. 

Amusing and touching, Ewan Flynn’s memoir of his Sunday league football team is a lovely read full of the small glories and fleeting disappointments of real life. Who knew that the Edmonton and District Sunday Football League could be such a strangely addictive world?
