Roger Alton names Cath Bishop’s The Long Win as one of the Daily Mail’s Sports Books of the Year.
Roger Alton makes his picks for the best books focusing on sport from 2020 British literary critic picked out tomes to suit all budgets this Christmas Among the picks are The Hurt by Dylan Hartley and The Long Win by Cath Bishop by Neville Southall (HarperCollins £20, 304pp) One of the most surprising books by a footballer, and a massive corrective for anyone who thinks that all players worry about is the colour of their new Maserati.
