On the book, author and historian Wicken said: “It’s been two years in the making, and I’m delighted with how it looks. It’s heavier than I was expecting though! I particularly enjoyed researching and choosing the photographs, which should prompt memories for supporters of all ages.

“I was also keen to include fans’ own recollections, and the book includes lots of superb stories that supporters have contributed. I very much look forward to people reading it, and I’m sure everyone will enjoy it.”
