My Life in Football by Trevor Brooking

When Trevor Brooking was still at school, the Essex-born teenager was one of the most eagerly pursued prospects in London, but he chose to go to West Ham United – the only club that was prepared to allow him to complete his studies – and so began a lifelong attachment to the Upton Park outfit.

In 1967 he made his debut for the club, and went on to play for them until 1984, helping them to win two FA Cup trophies, and scoring the only goal in the 1980 final.  A cultured midfielder at the heart of West Ham’s side, he was soon seen as crucial to England’s fortunes, helping them to qualify for the World Cup finals in 1982.

Brooking recalls the highlights of his career, playing with and against some of the most famous names in the sport, and provides revealing details about life with West Ham and England.  His story recalls a time when he was a symbol of solidity during the era of flared trousers, punk, and the turmoil of the Revie regime.  Respected by fans and his peers alike, Brooking has been at the forefront of the FA’s work to develop the game in recent years, and his views on the future of football are essential reading.
