The book illustrates his passion for Bolton Wanderers, which was initiated by his father at a young age. His vivid memories of the Bolton Disaster in 1946 graphically illustrate the differences that have occurred for supporters over the last 70 years. As well as being a family man, Gerald had a successful career as an accountant in the Public Sector and was extensively involved in football activities; his experiences as a football referee are eloquently documented. At the age of 58 he was struck down with meningitis and not expected to survive. He and his wife now spend more time at the family home in Spain enjoying the warmer weather.It was a warm day in May and we had good seats at Stamford Bridge and the Bolton fans were buoyant in anticipation of us staying up. We held Chelsea until the second half when they started to get on top andtheyscored. ... match day programme and perhaps most importantly enjoy conversation with new friends.
