This book is a true story of how a boy, from a small mining village in Wales and a cricket fanatic, ended up as doctor to the England World Cup Football Team and on the balcony, when England won the World Cup in 1966. It begins with his life in Tredegar and details the defining moments and experiences that led to his qualification as a doctor, despite having no proper qualifications to enter university. It charts his pssion for cricket and his excitement at playing with Glamorgan in his youth and his move from being a passionate cricketer to a director at MIddlesbrough Football Club. He was both the Club's Medical Officer; a Director of the club and an Honorary Team Physician to the England team. The book takes you behind the scenes at Middlebrough F.C. during their most successful years and charts their rise into a championship team, despite the political in fighting. It details his experiences both medical and political as Doctor to the England Football Team throughout 1966, 1970 and 1974 world cup competitions and what really happened when Sir Alf Ramsey left the England setup. It was with England that the special relationship developed with Jack Charlton enabling his introduction as Manager of Middlesbrough Football Club. It is a remarkable story, one that the author is as surprised, as you will be, to read the twists of fate that determine life's journey and the path it takes. It will appeal not only to football fans who remember what football was like before big money took over, but also non-football lovers who enjoy a strange, surprising autobiography. It is a story about football when it was still the beautiful game-well almost-and about an unusual life.
