Sample text

A geeky trainspotter so consumed with my lifetime passion, I didn’t care how odd I looked to outsiders. Vic knew though. Which was why he made me walk to the 75 bus stop in Huyton village like a Taliban wife, ten yards behind him. At Anfield he’d make me walk ten yards in front, tailing me from a distance like a private dick. But he was to blame for the embarrassing wooden prop. Without the stool, unless I stood right at the very front of the Annie Road (which Vic refused to as it was full of primary school kids like me) or sat on a barrier (a no-no as Vic wouldn’t offer the necessary back protection from the swaying crowd) I was knackered.

Especially when any display of emotion was met with a slap off my grandad whose horses had gone down, soon to be followed by his Littlewoods coupon, meaning that three-mile hike to the docks on Monday morning was still a reality.
