Ben Thornley: Tackled [9781785314476]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Who was the standout player when the Class of '92 won the FA Youth Cup? David Beckham? Paul Scholes? Ryan Giggs? Think again.

Ben Thornley: The Class of '92 Star Who Never Got to Graduate is the compelling autobiography of a teenager who had the world at his feet, only for one tackle to shatter his knee - and his dreams of playing for Manchester United. A supremely gifted winger with pace to burn, he played in every round of that Youth Cup run and finished as top scorer.

It wasn't long before Alex Ferguson, keen to unleash this prodigious talent, gave him his first-team debut - but just six weeks later came the moment that would change the path of Ben's career, and life, forever.

This tale is not only told from Ben's perspective but also with exclusive insights from those who witnessed him in action first hand. They include family and school friends, as well as Beckham, Giggs, Scholes, Gary Neville and many more.

This is the Class of '92 as you've never heard it before - from a player who was a class apart.
AUTHOR: Ben Thornley wrote Tackled with the collaboration of journalist Dan Poole. Dan is now the chief sub-editor of Monocle magazine. He started his career at The Independent and then worked in Sydney for three years, writing for FHM, Empire and Rolling Stone. He has also contributed to Manchester United fanzine, United We Stand. This is his first book.
