Route 66: A Journey Around the Football Grounds of Yorkshire

Have you ever counted the number of football grounds you have visited? Have you ever wondered how many you could go to in one season? Well this is exactly what Leeds United supporter Michael Mowbray did, resulting in a moment of madness and the setting of the great ground hopping challenge that is the subject of this book. At the start of the 2011 2012 season, Michael Mowbray embarked on his quest to visit each of the 66 football grounds in Yorkshire, all within a single season. From the depths of Step 7 of the Non League Pyramid to the dizzy heights of the Championship, Michael presents his adventure, which was much more challenging than simply watching 99 hours of football. You will hear tales of the hazards of extreme ground hopping including flying golf balls, blisters, endless drives in freezing fog and even missing children. The story is a mixture of an unhealthy love of football, the diversity of Yorkshire and perhaps a small midlife crisis. Above all, it s the story of a life changing experience.
