Description

Jamie Vardy: From Nowhere, My Story The Sunday Times Bestseller and Number 1 Sport Book of 2016

'A tale that's truly inspirational' The Sun

An ordinary lad from Sheffield, Jamie Vardy has become known as an against-the-odds footballing hero the world over. Yet a few years ago, things couldn’t have been any more different. Rejected as a teenager by his boyhood club, Jamie thought his chance was gone. But from playing pub football and earning £30 a week at Stocksbridge Park Steels, while still working in a factory, his off-the-cuff performances saw him rise.

Jamie had a wild and turbulent youth, but football became his saving grace and, once he filled his boots with goals at FC Halifax Town and Fleetwood Town, he moved to Leicester City. After the miracle of surviving relegation, the team of unlikely outsiders bonded together to achieve the unthinkable: Jamie set the record as the first player to score in 11 consecutive Premier League matches and Leicester beat odds of 5000-1 to become champions.

Jamie has now been nominated for the Ballon d’Or, firmly establishing himself as one of England’s leading goal scoring footballers. Not forgetting his roots, however, he has set up the V9 Academy in a bid to find the next big talent from non-league football. Defying all expectations, this is the story of the boy from nowhere who reached the top in his own unflinching, honest words.

    I'm a Man Utd supporter myself, but among others I'm sure, I was willing Leicester to win the title. Once I saw this book was coming out I was intrigued to see why a book would be released, after all he's just like any other footballer. How wrong could I be, the story is something you couldn't make up, what a way to make it to the top and thoroughly deserved. I'm glad I've finished it because I can finally get the housework done as I couldn't put it down. It's a shame he wasn't noticed sooner, but that has probably made him a better more appreciative man. I'd recommend this book to anyone, and hope the film does go on to get made, as I will definitely be going to see it if it does. Well done Vardy, well deserved, your an inspiration to any young lad who dares to dream of making it in football.
