Free Ebook Synopsis:
In 2012 and 2013 Mark Cowan meandered and wandered around football at almost every level in the North-east of England, taking in 27 grounds in the process. His journey takes in the Teesside League, Wearside League, Northern League, Northern Premier League, National League and Premier League, covering all tiers of England’s professional leagues.
From packed out stadia at St James’ Park and the Stadium of Light to virtually empty grounds where the players and officials almost outnumbered the paying public, the story muses over the role that football plays in a former industrial landscape where the ghosts of heavy industry are still present, if not physically then still in the psyche of locals and the settlements they inhabit.
