Stanley Park Story : Life, Love and the Merseyside Derby Hardback



Stanley Park Story: Life, Love and the Merseyside Derby charts the recent history of the longest continuous running derby game in English football.

Liverpool and Everton have now contested the fixture every season since 1962.

Using a mixture of fact, fiction and personal experience, Jeff Goulding has crafted a compelling tale spanning three generations of two families, Red and Blue.

Their lives become intricately woven together through 50 years of this unique sporting rivalry.

The story explores the changing fortunes of each team and the relationship between the two sets of supporters, which evolves over the years.

The life and times of Jimmy, a Blue, and Tommy, a Red, form the basis of the drama which unfolds against a backdrop of thrilling sporting encounters, social and political upheaval and catastrophe.

Ultimately, the story is one of a love so strong it reaches across the park to forge a timeless bond between the two families.
