Gullhanger is the hilarious, critically-acclaimed diary of a man who sets out to rekindle his passion for the glorious game, and indeed for life itself. Not via a big club such as Manchester United or Arsenal, but via the local third-tier football club to which he’d previously, shamefully, paid little attention: Brighton & Hove Albion FC – aka the Seagulls.
Desperate for something to get excited about again, Mike Ward breaks all the rules of football fandom by jumping on the Albion’s bandwagon. Will he be accepted or shunned? How will his family cope?
And with one more voice to cheer them on, albeit somewhat awkwardly, are the Seagulls in for a season of glory or gloom?
First published in September 2002, Gullhanger received glowing reviews on radio and in print. Top football magazine Four Four Two awarded it four stars out of five, the Daily Express called it “hilarious”, and BBC 5Live’s books panel called it “a great book . . . unique”.
To mark 10 years since Mike’s story began, Gullhanger is now issued for the first time as an e-book.
