A Sporting Wanderer

Gordon Allan

Gordon Allan entered journalism straight from school in Aberdeen in 1951. After seven years on the local newspapers, interrupted by National Service in the RASC, he spent thirty years in Fleet Street, mainly as a sports sub-editor and reporter with The Times. He lives in Carshalton, Surrey.

 


A Sporting Wanderer
is a journalist’s journey through various games and pastimes, from rugby to carpet bowls, from cricket to Scrabble. There are pieces on players, matches, spectators, soccer hooligans, real sports writers and ghost writers; on the way games are played and the way they are written about; on sports books and sponsors, and even on the weather. The author’s diary of the 1994 outdoor bowling season rounds off this lively collection of sporting commentary, opinion and anecdote.
