Publisher Description

Forget Torres, Rooney, Beckham and the like. This is what football is really about. One man’s story of a career in the lower leagues.

Chris Hargreaves has been a professional footballer for twenty years. Having started out as a youth team player at Everton he made his debut for Grimsby Town in 1989 and was earmarked as their first million pound sale.

It never happened.

Instead he went on to play for Scarborough, Hull City, West Brom, Hereford United, Plymouth Argyle, Northampton Town, Brentford, Oxford United and Torquay United.

Where's Your Caravan? is the sort of football memoir we don't see enough of these days - an account of life in the lower leagues. It takes us from his wild youth - lots of sex and drugs and drink - through to domesticated family man - school runs and flatpack furniture with plenty of football in between.

Interesting read

A insightful view into a career in the lower divisions, the lows, the regrets but also some great tales and a feeling at times of personal victory. I enjoyed the book and recommend it to any English football fan.

Where's your caravan

Having played with Chris @ Oxford I must say he has captured the true footballers story here.
I finished the book in 2 days, a true insight into the 90% of footballers.
It has me thinking if I have a book in me!!!

An amazing emotional read

I genuinely couldn't put it down. A fantastic insight into the inner circle of what it is like to be a lower league football. Funny, sad, thought provoking but always entertaining.
