Description

In 2009, Warrington RLFC reached the nadir of their long-term underachievement, prompting an open letter from their number one fan - signed 'Spirit of '55' in reference to the club's last championship season. The book follows the much-improved side's attempt to lay the ghosts of the past and become 2012 champions, building to a play-off climax.
