“I HOPE YOU DIE OF CANCER”
By Marvin Close (Pitch Publishing, £12.99)
A million miles away from the Premier League lies the world of non-league football: a far grittier version of the beautiful game. Footballer X lifts the lid on never-beforetold stories of dust-ups, bust-ups, backhanders and betting scandals. Our footballer is still playing, so the cloak of anonymity allows him to give us a true picture of what life is really like playing as a non-league footballer today.
