Marching on Together

Hugely enjoyable novel centered around 6 intertwined Leeds United supporters on a brief holiday to Belgium. Central themes are belonging, relationships, moving on, and the ups and downs of being a Leeds fan. Well recommended! 


From the publishers: "It is August 2014. Six Leeds United supporters set off for a short break in Bruges. Two brothers Allan and Johnny Collins - the former a successful businessman, the latter just out of prison - are visiting great-grandad's grave on the Western Front, at the time of the centenary of the start of the Great War. They're joined by Johnny's mates, Craig and Terry; the tomboy Petra; and the out-of-sorts Yvonne, who failed to persuade estranged husband Tony to accompany her. For all the political events, historic and current, that surround them, they find it difficult to avoid discussion of the wildly eccentric new owner of their beloved football club as it languishes in the second tier of English football. He has sold the best striker and banned the Number 17 shirt as being 'unlucky'. 


Meanwhile other obsessions, secrets and ambitions lie within their hearts. Can Johnny find love again, or a job? Will Terry make it as a photographer? Is Allan's business as successful as it appears to be? What is the family secret behind the antique silver locket that Yvonne keeps in her handbag? And can she finally accept the result of the 1975 European Cup Final, and begin to move on with her life?"
