I have received my pre-ordered copy of the book this morning and all I can say is WOW!
What a quality piece of work by David Garratt and Michael South. If any Spireites have missed out on the first edition I'd advise you to get an order in for the second edition now. I'm so glad I have purchased it. It's packed with great photos and information and it's in hardback which I didn't expect so that was a pleasant surprise. It is pure quality in terms of material and content and I guarantee you won't be disappointed with it. Thank you for your hard work in producing this fantastic book David and Michael. It's an absolute must have for any true Spireite.

It's very good and a souvenir for the time in non league . A reminder of why we hope we never repeat our journey down there

Hi all! Cheers for sharing this today.

Michael and I started planning this about 6 months ago when promtion was looking nailed on. It seems rare in football that you get a very defined beginning, middle and end and we both wanted to mark that but also have something physical to show for the photos Michael has taken and the interviews I've done over the years. Especially when you then add in everyhting else that has happened from the last few years like Covid, war in Ukraine, the passing of some of our legends like Ernie, John Duncan, Tony Brien and others, and the takeover of the club etc it seemed like something worth putting into print to remember.

The cost per book wasn't cheap as we wanted a hardback book on good thickness paper so we can't the people that originally backed this enough as it meant that we could pay the printing costs! The first 204 sold really quickly and the second run is already flying so thanks for sharing the word.

Also a big thanks to Ollie Banks and Jamie Grimes who both gave their time for a foreward and introduction and have been amazing. People like Jeff King and Kabby Tshimanga have also been really enthusiastic to give quotes for the book.

The sales of the first book mean that a good donation to the Ernie Moss Memorial Fund is being donated this week.

The next edition is due with us in the first week of July so we plan to be at the Matlock match with some copies too (Matlock have been great about it). In the meantime you can pre-order here https://thenationall....bigcartel.com/

Cheers!
Dave

Soon to be found in a charity shop near you. Seriously who wants to read about six years of hell? I personally just want to forget them. For those who want to relive them please do and enjoy the read

Definitely not going to charity. Enjoyed it immensely. Great pics and anecdotes.
The six years were part of our history with some huge lows and eventually highs. All part of lifes rich tapestry.

I want it to do well and considered buying it anyway, but the bottom line for me is I don't want to be reminded of it!
