The Number 1 book for every Goalkeeper, past & present
Are you, or have you ever been, a goalkeeper? Do you dream of pulling on a quilted green or Dayglo orange football shirt? Does it make you sigh, just thinking about enormous latex gloves – or of diving in muddy puddles? If so, this might just be the football book for you.
Lavishly illustrated, Glove Story marks out its territory and aims to cover every possible angle from the unique perspective of the goalline. Memories and memorabilia. Gloves through the ages. Timeless tips. From goalie gear to keeper culture, Glove Story safely gathers tales of larger-than-life characters, shot-stopping obsession and psychology between the sticks.
If your idea of the perfect Match of the Day is seven 0-0 draws – if you suffered from penalty phobia, or have ever secretly stashed a lucky charm in your glovebag – then you’ll need to catch Glove Story.
Glove Story is a visual feast, featuring a unique collection of goalkeeping memorabilia and illustrations by Doug Nash. Gloves and stars’ shirts from the 60s to date, vintage games and catalogues appear alongside photography covering goalies from park to international level.
The book captures the essence of what it means to be a goalkeeper, shining a light on the concerns and obsessions of everyone who has ever been a member of the Keepers’ Union:
