Vamos!: The Avon Plate Story: Searching for the Soul of Sunday Morning
Vamos! The Avon Plate story is a celebration of ten years of the existence of this Sunday League football team. Formed out of a group of enthusiastic rather than talented mates, discover the team that attempts to fuse South American flair with the uncompromising attitude and woeful first touch of the English amateur.
Experience a season that contains the commitment, cock-ups, thrills, despair, violence, glory and heartache usually associated with the standards of football and behaviour at grass roots level. Will the team survive another season? Can the ageing bones of our 39-year-old author stand the pace? Will the author's marriage and family stand the continued commitment to the cause?
The history of the club is woven into the tale of the 2006/07 Bristol & District Sunday League season. As ten years of Mr Blair draws to a close, the author intersperses match commentaries with his take on the world around him amidst the last days of our outgoing Prime Minister.
