Description

We Brits are suckers for plucky losers, or so we’re told. But even more, we love to see a heroic upset. In Underdog!, Tim Quelch calls upon a lifetime of watching struggling teams to show how post-war football’s most improbable successes were achieved – all set against a beautifully painted backdrop of lower-division hardship, and changing times. 

About the author

Tim Quelch is the author of Bent Arms and Dodgy Wickets, the story of England's troubled reign as Test match kings during the fifties. Like Underdog!, it was written to raise funds for the Alzheimer’s Society. A retired local government officer, Tim has also penned a number of books reflecting his oft-painful yet enduring love for Burnley FC.
