Grant Holt My Autobiography: A Real Football Life (Hardback)

Grant Holt’s path to the Premier Leaguewas far from conventional. Non-league stalwart. Semi-pro in Australia. Unlikely Singapore soccer star. Holt tried it all, before a series of rejections made him give up football at the age of 21. He was done with it. Nine years later, he was bullying Premier League defenders and scoring at Anfield, the Emirates and Stamford Bridge on his way to becoming England’s second highest scorer behind Wayne Rooney in the 2011-12 season.

His journey is a remarkable rise up nine tiers of English football, taking in swan attacks, tyre-fitting, pre-match meals of battered sausages and curry fried rice, fall-outs with managers, too many booking and goals, goals, goals. A match made in heaven with Norwich City propelled him from League One to the Premier League in just two seasons, and to the brink of England’s Euro 2012 squad. His fans loved him, opposition fans loved to hate him. Everywhere he went, he left an impression. An honest, old-school striker, his rise from non-league to Premier League was a triumph for the real footballer. 

Grant Holt has recently embarked on a wrestling career, with a triumphant Royal Rumble last year and a Fightmare event lined up at Carrow Road on June 2 where he will take on some of wrestling’s biggest names. This is his remarkable story. 
A Real Football Life also includes a foreword from renowned BT Sport presenter, broadcaster and Norwich City fan Jake Humphrey.
