Trouble is, Danny is ham-footed, beer-bellied, and too old to ever make the grade. Or so he thinks. Suddenly presented with the chance to swap Sunday League for Premier League, Danny is thrust into the exciting world of top-flight football. But the modern game is littered with pitfalls that threaten to turn his dream into a nightmare, as he finds himself surrounded by badly-behaved footballers, tabloid journalists, sex, drugs and violence. Can Danny hold things together and realise his dream? And, if so, at what cost? Funny, gritty and authentic, Sunday League is the football novel the beautiful game deserves.
