Endorsements

Gavin’s story is varied, gripping and moving. I’ve never before read such an evocative description of how it actually feels to score a goal at the top level. Nor have I read a more spine tingling account of what it feels like to step up to the pulpit and preach. Football feels like a matter of life and death to some of us, but the gospel truly is … and Gavin gives us a pitch–side seat as we experience the wonder of both.

Tim Farron, MP, Former Leader of the Liberal Democrats

Gavin was a superb footballer, but more importantly a wonderful guy. His life story will be one of the football best ever reads for sure.
