How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers Won The F. A. Cup

(1975)
A novel by

 
'One of the greatest football novels ever written and a comic masterpiece' DJ Taylor

'But is this story believable? Ah, it all depends upon whether you want it to believe it.' J.L. Carr

In their new all-buttercup-yellow-stripe, Steeple Sinderby Wanderers, who usually feel lucky when their pitch is above water-level, are England's most obscure team. This uncategorizable, surreal and extremely funny novel is the story of how they start the season by ravaging the Fenland League and end it by going all the way to Wembley.

Told through unreliable recollection, florid local newspaper coverage and bizarre committee minutes, How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers Won the F.A. Cup is both entertaining and moving. There will never be players again like Alex Slingsby, Sid 'the Shooting Star' Swift and the immortal milkman-turned-goalkeeper, Monkey Tonks.
