Description

Steve Tongue: Turf Wars

Born in Walthamstow and brought up at Leyton Orient, Steve Tongue watched his first London match in 1957 and has followed football in the capital ever since. He was the founder of 'Foul' magazine, the first football fanzine and as the football correspondent of LBC Radio and The Independent on Sunday among others, he covered nine World Cups and nine European Championships, plus two Olympic Games.
Steve will be talking about his 45 years as a London-based sports journalist specialising in football (although he has also covered Test cricket, Wimbledon and several obscure Olympic sports) and then taking questions.
His book 'Turf Wars', which has attracted many five-star reviews, and was reprinted within three months of going on sale, is the first comprehensive history of all the London clubs, past and present, from The Wanderers and Old Carthusians to West Ham and AFC Wimbledon.
