Cherry Picking: Life Between the Sticks by Steve Cherry with Jonathan Nicholas


ISBN-13: 9781912575831




Steve Cherry was born into a large family in 1960 in the Nottinghamshire pit village of Calverton.It was assumed that he would follow his father and brother into the nearby pit, but it was clear from an early age that he had a special relationship with football, and this quickly became his main obsession in life. Aged 15, Steve was already goalkeeping in the local colliery team when he was spotted by a scout from Derby County. He signed as a schoolboy before turning professional, and was capped for England several times in his youth before eventually winning Derby County’s `Player of the Year’ in 1983. He then played for Walsall, Plymouth Argyle, Chesterfield and then Notts County just after Neil Warnock arrived where he yet again won `Player of the Year’. He left Notts in 1995 and then played for several other clubs where he is fondly remembered. 200pp
