In the summer of 2013, Calvin Wade, a man with football in his blood and very little in his wallet, decided to embark upon an F.A Cup adventure that he and his father had discussed for over thirty years. The idea was to head to a game in the Extra Preliminary Round of the F.A Cup and then follow the winners of each game, up and down the country, through every round, until eventually reaching the bright lights of Wembley and the F.A Cup Final. This is not only an autobiographical account of a nine month journey through the 2013-14 footballing season, especially the F.A Cup, but it is also a story about family, friendship, financial struggle and a footballing past. It is about tales new and old with English Peles, a man known as 'The Casual Hopper' and football fans of all ages throughout the British Isles. With a foreword by former F.A Cup winning manager, Joe Royle, 'Another Saturday & Sweet F.A' seeks to show that Bill Shankly was right after all and sometimes football can be more important than life and death. * Fifty pence from the sale of the paperback and Kindle versions of this book will be donated to The Christie Charity.
