Endorsements

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.

Harry Harris , Author, Former Chief Football Writer for The Daily Mirror, Two–time British Sports Journalist Of The Year

This is about as far as you could possibly get from your ‘traditional’ footballer’s auto–biography. Given the almost unprecedented journey upon which he has embarked, it is both essential and fascinating to learn what shaped Gavin, from his family to his career in football to his faith.
