Shortlist Surprise

Amazingly, Outcasts has been shortlisted for the National Sporting Club football book of the year award

Outcasts is the rank outsider and its great simply to be on a shortlist with the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton's account of his years at Manchester United, Graeme Le Saux's autobiography and 'Provided You Don't Kiss Me' by Duncan Hamilton, who has already won the William Hill sports book of the year award.

The winners of this award and a number of others are unveiled on March 18 at the Cafe Royal in London.
