Ordinary Boys – The Class of 79

Merv Payne

Regular price £10.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

They were just a bunch of ordinary football-mad boys from the local estates, but together on the football pitch they were unstoppable.

This is the story of the Millwall team that won the FA Youth Cup for the first time in the club’s history in 1979, but they were so much more than just a team.

An inseparable band of brothers, they defied the odds by not only beating some of the top teams in the country on their way to the final (including Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest) they out-footballed them.

What was all the more remarkable was that they did it while the football club imploded around them amidst a constant wave of financial and other off-the-field troubles as it plummeted into footballing oblivion.

The club’s dwindling fortunes would surely be turned around with the help of this new crop of brilliant young players graduating to the team. Unfortunately, as we know, football isn’t always quite as simple as that.
