Another nostalgia-driven football book? Possibly, but Punk Football by Andrew Vaughan is as much about life and music in the mid-70s as the beautiful game.
Punk Football is Vaughan’s story – an 18-year-old clothes and music-obsessed Wigan Athletic fan 18-year old, mixing his time in the town’s Bier Keller, enjoying the emerging world of punk rock, reggae and girl and at Wigan’s Springfield Park as the team finally made it into the football league.
Featuring contributions from players, punk rockers and supporters, the book describes an altogether different Wigan and indeed Wigan Athletic fro the one today. Published in September, it will retail for £9.99.
