Triumph & Disaster 150 Years of Rochdale Hornets

Recommended Posts

Like most people I have always said I would love to write a book, especially about my chosen team. Thankfully I was able to make that happen.

Planned 5 years ago and eventually started and finished during lockdown, fellow Hornets fan Jim Stringer and myself with notable contributions from several people along the way have finally completed Triumph and Disaster 150 Years of Rochdale Hornets.

It charts the ebb and flow of Rochdale Hornets over its entire 150 years of existence!

If you are in Rochdale for the next couple of Saturdays it is on sale in the club shop. It is also available online via the club website or London League Publications and from Monday via Amazon, Ebay Books and Kindle.

A true labour of love!

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had to postpone our book signing at Spotland tomorrow. It'll be re-arranged before Xmas - watch this space for details.

Just listened and enjoyed the conversation.   Good stuff.  Particularly the point about the affluence of the time for such towns.
