If you think Five Leaves does obscure...

I was thrilled to come across a new press to me in Nottingham. Soccer Data ( publishes books about football - but such football! In their new list is Sunk Without Trace: the Chingford Town Story. The publisher admits that the book is a slim volume, as Chingford Town played only two seasons in the Southern League before folding. They were a troubled club, not least as the River Ching "seemed determined to flood the ground at any opportunity". The backlist includes the essential The Wembley Way: Halesowen's FA Vase Glory Years. If I had the remotest interest in football this would be the publisher for me. Who would not want a copy of Lay on them backs, Boston, a detailed account of Boston United's games in the FA Cup. Let's get The Chingford Town Story into the best seller lists!
