Town Book Hits Milestones
Sunday, 20th Dec 2015 18:32
Adventures Of a Tractor Boy, Town fan Graeme Brooke’s book about his years following the Blues, recently hit a significant landmark with the sale of its 1,000th copy and will have raised more than £2,000 for the Colchester Special Care Baby Unit once all royalties have been received.
Last week, it reached another milestone with a photo of the book in a 50th country having being added to its website - www.adventuresofatractorboy.co.uk - by new women’s squash world number one Laura Massaro in Hong Kong.
There is still time to buy a copy of the book for Christmas via Amazon and if you have a copy already Graeme is still after pictures of the book from countries, landmarks or with well-known faces from around the world, which can be sent by email to to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Colchester Special Care Baby Unit is a charity close to Graeme's heart as it looked after his daughter Leah who was born eight weeks prematurely.

A fixture that started as a mid-table game but ended as one that would be marked by having special T-shirts printed to commemorate it - this was the Demolition Derby.

The first leg had been played in the three-sided Portman Road, with no North Stand. Circumstances that many fans thought contributed to our relegation that season.
