THE GOT, NOT GOT FOOTBALL GIFT BOOK  
Out now – with free set of football cards!

At long last, it’s the big new Got, Not Got book from Hammond & Silke. Based on your mum’s glossy mail-order catalogue from the good old 20th century, The Got, Not Got Football Gift Book is packed full of memories and memorabilia. 

It’s a romp. A visual treat. A collector’s treasure trove. With jokes and social history and loads of stuff in sections – Toys & Games, Tech, Kit, Food & Drink, Cards & Stickers, Programmes… – that will inspire a heady vintage swirl of greed, envy and lust.

ALSO: Gary James’s Manchester City Folklore explores the club’s mythology. Simon Kimber & Gary Silke’s Can’t Buy That Feeling is the Best of The Fox Interviews. And Rob Stokes’ Glove Story is the Number 1 Book for Goalkeepers, Past & Present.

The Art of Goalkeeping

Across Glove Story‘s beautiful endpapers you’ll find 80 of the world’s greatest ever keepers, all captured in unmistakable style by the book’s illustrator, Doug Nash.

Fourteen eightieths of Glove Story’s wonderful endpapers.

Doug is selling posters of his goalie-friendly creations – complete with correct kit, gloves and boots – at his own website, TheArtOfGoalkeeping.com. He offers posters and T-shirts featuring the goalies from the book as well as other shot-stopping stars from many individual clubs.

To celebrate the launch of Glove Story, Doug has created for Conker Editions an exclusive Home International Greats A2 poster, which features his selection of the finest British goalies ever to pull on the hallowed yellow nylon of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. From Banks and Shilton to James and Hart; Pat Jennings and Harry Gregg; Alan Rough, Jim Leighton, Andy Goram; from Leigh Richmond Roose via Gary Sprake to Wayne Hennessey, they’re all lined up for duty. Bring back the Home Internationals!

‘Glove Story’ – in support of Willow

Following the lead of author Rob Stokes, all the author royalties from Glove Story will be donated to Willow, the only UK charity supporting seriously ill 16 to 40 years old through Special Days.

Willow’s Co-Founders and Life Presidents, Bob and Megs Wilson, at a goalkeeping summer school back in the day – as featured in Glove Story.

This donation represents the collective effort of a whole team of writers, photographers, illustrators, other individuals and businesses involved in the production of the book. Likewise, the book’s illustrator Doug Nash is going to donate a proportion of his Glove Story/Art of Goalkeeping poster sales to the charity.

The plan is not simply to make a modest donation of royalties to Willow, but instead to convert the figure into copies of the book. Bob and Megs Wilson and their team can then get the books and posters signed by their extensive contact list of top goalkeepers – which will hopefully turn them into attractive items for the charity’s auction events.
 
Here you can find out more about the work of Willow.
