The Three Degrees: The Men Who Changed British Football Forever

Paul Rees

Regular price £10.99

Tax included.

From the publisher:

When Cyrille Regis became one of the first black players to be selected for the full England team, he was sent a package in the mail. Inside it was a silver bullet and a note that read: 'You'll get one of these through your knees if you step on our Wembley turf.' In the 1978/79 football season Regis' club West Bromwich Albion, an unglamorous and little publicised club from the West Midlands, became the first British football team to field three black players: Cyrille Regis, Laurie Cunningham and Brendon Batson. They did so against the backdrop of the most divisive and poisonous racial tension in the UK's history - a time when the National Front movement was at its most virulent.

This book will tell the story of a defining and groundbreaking chapter in the history of British football and the country as a whole. The story is one about sport but also as much one about social change.
