About the author (2009)

After working in advertising for fifteen years, Tim Harris got involved in a pub argument about why football shirts tend to be striped and rugby shirts tend to be hooped. Thus began an obsession with the odd reasons and strange stories behind the games we take for granted. This book is the result. Like so many writers, Tim is married with two children and lives in North London.
