Drop Kick Books - first publication

The first publication by Drop Kick Books was Leeds Who? - the story of a forgotten rugby union club.

Leeds Who? is the story of a junior rugby union club that, for the majority of its sixty seven years in existence, was called Leeds Chirons. It is a story that reflects some of the changes that have taken place in the sport between 1923 and 1990. If you have ever been involved with ‘grassroots’ rugby, the events and incidents described in this book will hopefully revive memories of a much simpler time. Leeds Chirons played in an amateur era, when results were important but there were no league tables to worry about. The game of rugby on a Saturday afternoon and the social activities that followed it were the reasons you played. Some of the memories recounted make it clear just how much of an impact rugby has on the lives of ordinary people.

The book was published in February 2011 and is available from YPDBooks.com.
