From the publisher:
In the summer of 1992 just as a revolution was started to unfold in the English professional game, a group of young men from inner city Bristol form a Sunday league football team. Few of the original Easton Cowboys could have envisaged the extraordinary journey that team would make over the next two decades, a journey that would see them play soccer in a low-level Mexican war zone, cricket games in South Central LA and take them to the dusty fields of Palestine. This is the improbable story of the Easton Cowboys and Cowgirls, a punk-inspired, community-minded club that truly is like no other in British sport. It traces their development from that single men's football team to a multi-sport self-funding semi-legendary local institution with links around the globe. Freedom Through Football is an eye-opening, inspiring tale with an unlikely cast of characters - ski-masked Zapatistas, rampageous can can dancers and an up-and-coming street artist named Banksy.
