Magical Paul Fletcher - the book and the launch

04 September 2012 11:48
Paul Fletcher's new book MAGICAL A Life in Football will be published on November 1st with the launch at 7.30 that day in the Jimmy Mac/UCFB Stand at Turf Moor.

Just 200 tickets are available from Dave Thomas on 0113 2555350 or They are priced at £5 (plus postage of 50p for up to four tickets and an extra £1 over and above four). The ticket price includes a pie & peas supper with entertainment from Mike King and Steve Kindon, and please feel free to bring books and programmes for signing by the ex-players who will be attending.

 The ticket, as shown, is a 7x5 card picture of both Fletcher and Kindon, and signed by both, whilst the hardback book is priced at £14.99. Plenty of former players are expected on the night.

The tickets are on sale right now and you will also be able to pre-order the book directly from Clarets Mad with news on that later in the week.

Fletcher, a former Claret, until the end of last year the club's chief executive, is now the managing director of UCFB, based at Turf Moor. He's also involved in other projects including the university stadium development at Wrexham's Racecourse Ground.

This book is described as being as lively and bouncy as Fletch himself. Knowing him as well as I do I wouldn't expect anything else.
