The long-awaited autobiography of one of England's glorious World Cup winners, published to coincide with the fortieth anniversary of England's triumph.

Synopsis

The Ghost of '66 : The Autobiography by Martin Peters

Martin Peters was a gifted attacking midfield player with an uncanny ability to turn up at the right time and the right place, as he showed when scoring England's second goal in the World Cup final. He was part of the legendary West Ham trio of Moore, Hurst and Peters and spent nearly a decade at the club before moving on to Spurs for a record fee of £200,000. After five years there, which saw him win the UEFA Cup, he moved to Norwich, and helped them to promotion to the First Division. At all three clubs, he is revered as one of their greatest stars.

In his autobiography he recalls working with such great players as Bobby Charlton and Jimmy Greaves, and assesses the strengths of his managers, from Alf Ramsey to Ron Greenwood and Bill Nicholson. Renowned as being a decade ahead of his time as a player, he provides remarkable insight into that period. A true England legend, this is a story all fans of the game will want to read to understand more about England's golden era.

About the Author

Martin Peters played for West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur (where he won the UEFA Cup) and Norwich City in an illustrious playing career that saw him win 67 caps for England and score 20 goals, including one in the 1966 World Cup final.
