Addicted to Football: A Journey from Anfield to Almost Everywhere.

Jon Newby

Regular price £19.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

Addicted to Football: A Journey from Anfield to Almost Everywhere is the autobiography of former professional footballer Jon Newby. His career took him from a single Premier League appearance with Liverpool to playing for clubs all over the country in the top eight tiers of the football pyramid. There was also a spell in Scottish football and a venture into non-league management.

As a young player, Jon achieved his dream as he walked out in front of a packed Kop at Anfield. But ultimately his name was better known by Bury, Morecambe and Colwyn Bay fans, rather than by Liverpool fans. His story gives a fascinating insight into the unpredictable world of the journeyman footballer, covering battles with injuries, managers and even his own mind.

Jon's biggest battle, however, came when he was diagnosed with an incurable heart condition and the game he was addicted to put his life in serious danger.

The author:

Since retiring from playing, Jon has continued to work in football, firstly with the Hugh McAuley football academy and then for AFC Fylde as a first-team coach. For the last seven years he has worked at Liverpool FC Academy, initially as a coach and now in their player recruitment department. This is Jon's first book.
