As part of my course last year I met up with a guy named Andy Ollerenshaw. I met him before the Cambridge United vs Weymouth match in the F.A Cup, and we had a beer in the Cambridge United Supporters Club bar.
He was on a journey. Starting in the preliminary rounds, Andy would follow a team for every game in the cup. And, when they got beat, he’d follow the winner right up to the final in May.
I’m DELIGHTED to announce that Andy has written a book about his experience, and it is available to buy soon. He emailed me a while ago asking if he could quote me… so I’m excited to see if I made it into the book.
When it comes out, I plead with all the football fans out there to buy it. Firstly, because it’s about the very essence of the English game. Secondly, because it has Cambridge United in it. And thirdly, because Andy is a thoroughly nice bloke, and I’m sure it’ll be a fun read.
