FOOTBALL coach Chris Kirkham has made it into print with a book taking a frank look at the state of the junior game.

Show Some Respect takes a look at some worrying tales of behaviour by parents at matches and investigates how the FA’s Respect campaign is trying to make a difference to the atmosphere.

The Burlington Jackdaws director said: “I had been attaching several stories from incidents nationally to our club newsletters and just built up a folder of hundreds of incidents.

“I felt these needed to be shared to help the junior football enviroment. I got bored one evening and started writing and didnt stop.

“The feedback has been terrific, and those who read it will see the contributers that include ex-England manager Graham Taylor and people high in the game within the Respect campaign.

The book is set to feature on Sky Sports and can be bought from www.showsomerespect.co.uk, eBbay, Amazon and Waterstones.

It can be bought locally at The Telegraph pub in Quay Road or if you see Chris. Or e-mail chriskirkham5@hotmail.com.
