Fan Publishes Book on His Years Following The Blues
Wednesday, 28th May 2014 21:51
Town fan Graeme Brooke has published a book about his years following the Blues, Adventures of a Tractor Boy.
“It is the tales of me following Ipswich Town and the obsession of doing so and all of the insane and utterly mad stories associated with it,” Graeme explained.
“It is loosely based on Nick Hornby's Fever Pitch. You do not have to be a football supporter to enjoy it, the stories are all humorous and relate to anyone with an obsession. If you have an obsession and like football then perfect.
“There are a number of references to characters who I have met over the years following Ipswich home and abroad, so you may even get a mention, you never know!
“One hundred per cent of the profits from the book will be donated to Colchester Special Care Baby Unit at Colchester Hospital who nursed my youngest daughter Leah when she was born eight weeks premature and who is now thankfully a healthy eight-year-old season ticket holder and Junior Blue, so it is all in a good cause.
To read more about the book on the Adventures of a Tractor Boy website and Facebook, while you can buy a copy from Amazon — where it is currently in the top 40 football books — here. Alternatively, it is available from Greetings & Gifts, 15c High St, Manningtree CO11 1AG (01206 615262).
