An Ordinary Spectator : 50 Years of Watching Sport

By (author) Rigg, John

John Rigg has been an 'ordinary spectator' - not only of rugby but of football and cricket and other sports - for 50 years. This is a warm and engaging memoir of half a century of sports spectating - from Yorkshire to London to Scotland via New York and Sydney (and Minsk!). It presents a unique perspective on why live sport is compulsive viewing.
