In this exciting new book, Simon Mapletoft takes you on a nostalgic journey through his own sporting past as a teenager growing up in North Nottinghamshire, and shares a revealing, humorous insight into his life as a football reporter in the 80s and 90s.
Simon dedicated his early career in journalism and broadcasting to football andÂ was, quite simply, the voice of Mansfield Town,Â best remembered by Nottinghamshire sports fans for the 13 years he covered the Stags for BBC Radio Nottingham.
As well as reporting on around 650 matches and helping the stationâ€™s sports team win coveted Sony Radio and New York Festival awards, he was also sports editor of the Mansfield Chronicle Advertiser before becoming Stags correspondent for the Nottingham Evening Post and its Saturday paper, the Football Post.
This rip-roaring mix of hilarious anecdotes and revealing insight into lower division football also evokes memories of some of the most colourful characters in local sport, charting howÂ Simon realised his lifetimeâ€™s ambition to become a sports reporter Â â€“ a career that has taken him from Field Mill to a worldwide stage as a presenter on the Sky Sports horseracing channel At The Races.
