Don Price: A Football Fan’s Story – Available now!
Chairman of the Prestwich & Whitefield Branch of Manchester City Supporters Club for many years, Don Price has recently got in touch with us to say that he’s written a fascinating new book
In Don’s words, “There is loads of stuff in it about my antics in the Royal Navy plus following City all over the place some great stories about Supporter Club meetings and away trips”
Here’s a quick summary to whet your appetite:
Like most kids back in the day, Don dreamt of being a professional footballer and scoring the winning goal at Wembley. Unfortunately for Don, he was not much good at football. He grew up in Manchester in the fifties and sixties, and even joining the Royal Navy in the late sixties did not dampen his passion or enthusiasm for the game. Don founded one of the largest football supporters’ branches in the country and was chairman of it for ten years. This is a gripping account and a humorous look back at his time in the Royal Navy and the supporters branch meetings including sportsmen’s dinners, and charity events he organised with some of the top names in British football. Celebrity guests included Kevin Keegan, Nick Leeson, and Francis Lee. He also recounts some of the hilarious away trips he organized. It is a real life supporters story that will appeal to all football fans.
The Book is called A Football Fans Story (The Royal Navy, Manchester City and me) and is available now on Amazon.
You won’t want to miss this gem!
