Debut book aids tragedy fund

Have your say

A FORMER footballer has drawn on his love of the beautiful game to write his first book and raise funds for those affected by the Hillsborough tragedy.

Dangerous Score, by Mike Bearcroft, tells the story of a rising young footballer whose life and career are threatened when he is linked with the disappearance of a young woman. Proceeds from sales of the £8.99 book will be donated to the Hillsborough Families Support Group.

Mike, who was a junior player and goalkeeper with Sheffield United FC and later became chairman of Corby Town FC, said: “I’ve had a lifelong passion for football so when I decided to write a novel I knew the game would be at the heart of it. I’ve always had a deep admiration for the Hillsborough Families Support Group.”
