Arsenal book news

GCR Books Ltd, the independent publisher of Arsenal-related books, is releasing three new titles at the end of October.

Two of them, "Herbert Chapman on Football" and "Cliff Bastin Remembers" are re-publications of classic Arsenal books first published in 1934 and 1950 respectively.

Herbert Chapman on Football

The former is a collection of articles written by Herbert Chapman for The Sunday Express and was published shortly after his premature death.


Cliff Bastin Remembers

"Cliff Bastin Remembers: The autobiography of Arsenal's greatest outside-left"
is exactly that. Ghost-written by Brian Glanville, the book tells the story of Bastin's football career from his schoolboy days through to the end of his long Arsenal and England career.


Billy Gooner's First Match

The third book, "Billy Gooner's First Match", has been written specifically for young Arsenal supporters and tells the story of 7-year-old Billy Gooner's first visit to watch Arsenal at Highbury in March 1976. Wonderfully illustrated, the book follows Billy through the highs and lows of his big day out and ends with a surprise that will ensure he's an Arsenal fan for life.


All three books are available to order from the GCR Books website at the discounted price of £7.99, £7.99 and £5.99 respectively. However, by entering "AISA" in the discount code box you can save an additional 10%. You'll also find them on the Amazon and Waterstones websites at the full retail price.

GCR Books has previously republished "The Arsenal Stadium Mystery", "Forward, Arsenal!" by Bernard Joy and Eddie Hapgood's autobiography "Football Ambassador", all available from their on-line shop.
