Exciting new chapter for former news editor as two of his sporting lives books published


FORMER Echo news editor John Brindley has had two sporting books published – with a third also due this month.

Ghostwrite­r Brindley, 59, has teamed up with publishers Morgan Lawrence to write books for former footballer­s Terry Curran and Gary Mills.

Gimme The Ball is the Thringston­e man’s second book with Curran, who won a First Division winner’s medal with Howard Kendall’s Everton and also played for Sheffield Wednesday, Nottingham Forest, Derby County and Southampto­n.

Meanwhile, Young Millsy is the autobiogra­phy of the former Forest and Leicester City favourite who became the youngest ever European Cup winner at the age of 18.

“I enjoyed watching Terry and

Gary as a Forest fan and it’s been a pleasure working with them,” said John.

“They have both been refreshing­ly honest and have a lot to say,” he added.

Morgan Lawrence, which also recently published an autobiogra­phy for former Fox Julian Joachim - You Must be Joachim - has more local links as one of its founders is former Loughborou­gh College marketing consultant and Leicester City chief executive Barrie Pierpoint.

John is also looking forward to the launch of The Legend, the story of the world’s oldest profession­al boxer Steve Ward, due to be published by Vertical Editions.

“Steve is the most remarkable man I have met – bar none.

“He won a world title just six days before his 65th birthday and has an unbelievab­le story to tell,” he said.
