Jack Bailey dreamed of being the next big thing in the Premiership. Six years on and he finds himself an unfulfilled, GBP 6,000-a-week benchwarmer with a WAG girlfriend who is ready to dump him at the first sign of a better offer. Unwanted by his club he is 'loaned out' to a side in New Zealand. A nobody on the other side of the world he is forced to reassess his selfish ways, but is it too late for Jack Bailey to resurrect his career? Incidents woven into the storyline are inspired by true events revealed to the author by players he has interviewed during his career as a football journalist, giving the plot a veracity that will make it a real page-turner for all sports fans.
