WALTERS WINGIN' IT THIS WEEKEND
Villa, Rangers and Liverpool legend Mark Walters' book-signing events - Scotland first, on 6 and 7 October...
Wingin’ It is the ultimate story of hope over hate, the insightful autobiography of a footballer who beat the bigots. Due to the colour of his skin, Mark Walters always felt he needed to be twice as good as other players in order to succeed. But Mark drew inspiration from the way the late Cyrille Regis handled his racist detractors, and went on to fulfil his potential by flaunting his dazzling ball skills for England.
Mark Walters will be chatting to fans and signing books in Scotland this weekend, followed by events in Liverpool and Birmingham - watch this space! Come along this weekend, get a pic and a book signed by Mark along with his collaborator Jeff Holmes.

One of a dying breed of traditional wingers, Mark Walters’ story starts on the streets and ends after 23 years in the professional game. In between, though, Mark:
- Describes how he beat the racists to carve out a career at the top table of football
- Tells of the anguish of learning how his father was living a double life
- Recalls the moment, as a kid, when he was denied the opportunity to meet his hero, Johann Cruyff by someone who should have known better
- Talks of the disgust he felt when he discovered a ruthless paedophile was running his youth team
- Describes the moment he finally got to play alongside his footballing hero at Rangers
- Tells of how his Liverpool dream turned into a nightmare
