Denied Promotion By A Tree  – About the Book

Do you know which three Bolton Wanderers’ players played for Brazil during the 1966 World Cup? Which team contained five players whose name was the same as the club they played for? The team England has never beaten? The only player to have been substituted in a league game who never set foot on the pitch? The only English league club not obliged to change their strip in the event of a colour clash

The answers to the above, along with over 5,000 other amazing, little known football facts can be found in ‘ Denied Promotion By A Tree’. There is no place for the common-place in this, the definitive football fact book that will entertain, inform and astound football fans far and wide.

Discover the only club (British) to have played both legs of a European tie at home. The two Port Vale team mates who left the club, one to manage Juventus, the other, Real Madrid. The player who scored with a header from his own cross and….the club denied promotion by a tree.

Every current and former English, Scottish and Welsh league club is mentioned at least twice. ‘Denied Promotion By A Tree’ also contains a myriad of images of fascinating football memorabilia culminating in a book which captures the spirit of affection and belonging keenly felt by all lovers of football.
