Celebrate World Book Night (23 April) with the Saturday Sports Show
Are you a football enthusiast? Do you like reading sports books? Maybe you’ve seen the film and would enjoy the book?
The Saturday Sports Show has 24 copies of “The Damned United” by David Peace to give away as part of World Book Night celebrations.
The Damned United tells the story of Brian Clough’s ill-fated 44 days as manager of Leeds United – it’s a great book from the author of the Red Riding Quartet (Channel 4 series on police corruption in Yorkshire).
'The most extraordinary novel about football yet to appear.' --Tim Martin, Independent on Sunday
'The Damned Utd is an overwrought, overblown, sliding tackle of a book. I loved it.' --Tony Saint, Daily Telegraph
You can listen in to the Saturday Sports Show on Saturday 21st between 16.00 and 18.00 when we’ll be giving away the books - ring the studio on 01478 611234 or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and contact details (Subject: World Book Night giveaway). Books will be given out to the first 24 people who contact the station. If there are still books remaining after the Saturday Sports Show on 21st – we will accept entries by email as above and the Giveaway will end at 18.00 on Saturday 28th April.
Please note: We’re sorry but the Giveaway is only open to residents of Skye & Lochalsh
