The Tommy Lawton era at Notts County came in three parts - first as player 1947 to 1952, then as manager 1957-58 and finally as coach and chief scout 1968-69.
Lawton was one of the biggest names in football when he joined Notts County, but within a year was cast into the international wilderness. He came and left Notts County three times, each in circumstances more anguished than the last, while away from football, life also proved to be one setback after another.
This is a gripping tale and woven into it are memories of other Notts personalities of the Lawton Era. 224pp b/w photos
