Richard Parkes Cordock Have you ever wondered what it takes to win an amateur football league?
In this book you’ll hear the story of Oldman Athletic, an ageing 6-a-side football team who, just like Leicester City, were never supposed to become champions. It should never have happened... but it did.
Told through the eyes of their captain, you’ll read how Oldman went from bottom of the league, to middle and then top. You'll read about the decisions they made and the thinking behind each decision. You’ll read about the strategies and tactics they adopted, and the things they did right in their title winning season, compared to what they did wrong in previous campaigns.
This is more than just a football book, it is a book about building a team and getting a group of individuals to come together who are worth more than the sum of their parts.
How Oldman Athletic Won the League is a must read for all football fans, especially those who play amateur football… but there are many lessons included in the book which are pertinent to business managers and leaders, and managers and leaders from all walks of life who want to achieve something extraordinary with their team.
