Close Quarters: An Extraordinary Season on the Brink and Behind the Scenes [9781785317170]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Close Quarters is the inspirational, against-the-odds story of Wycombe Wanderers, the club with the lowest budget in League One, and how it is shaped into a side that sustains a nine-month challenge for promotion to the Championship. Led by the longest-serving boss in professional football, the charismatic Gareth Ainsworth, Wycombe's players throw off the threat of relegation and dig in for a remarkable campaign. Award-winning sportswriter Neil Harman delves deep into the soul of the players, joining them in the dressing room, on the coach, in the medical room and in team meetings amid a challenge none of them have faced before. Harman gets the inside story of Ainsworth's rise from a working-class upbringing on the back streets of Blackburn, through a rumbustious playing career, to a one-club manager moulding Wycombe while dealing with an American takeover that could make the difference between the club's life and death. Close Quarters is a book that resonates, not just with Wycombe supporters, but fans of underdog clubs everywhere.
AUTHOR: Neil Harman, formerly of the Daily Mail and The Times, was SJA Sports News Reporter of the Year in 2007. He has collaborated with Sir Andy Murray and David Beckham on their stories, and written books including Court Confidential: A Year in Tennis and Gambling for Life, with Harry Findlay, longlisted for the William Hill prize in 2017 and named in the top ten Sunday Times sports books in the same year.
