No city in England can match Gloucester’s passion for the game of rugby. The streets are festooned in cherry and white on match days and that famous cry of ‘Glaw . . . sterrr’ can be heard far beyond the club’s Kingsholm ground. This book illustrates what makes Gloucester Rugby Club so special. It features revealing and humorous interviews with some of the greats (including, to name but a few, Mike Teague, Andy Deacon and Ian Smith), historical facts, trivia, stats and stories, told by those who pulled on that famous shirt. It recalls the great matches, the cup wins, the highs, and also some of the lows. This is a book that shows what it means to play for Gloucester, a club steeped in tradition, pride and sporting excellence.
