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.
