Old School - Beckett bikes balls and all
Publisher: Blackstaff Press
Liam Beckett is old school. One of Northern Ireland’s best-loved sports pundits, few can touch him when it comes to talking about road racing and football. And he doesn’t just talk the talk, he’s walked the walk – he was Robert Dunlop’s mechanic and mentor for almost twenty years and during his ten-year football career he was both player and manager.
In this new book, Beckett talks frankly about what these sports mean to him, how they have changed and the challenges that lie ahead. Among other things, he talks passionately about his sporting heroes; relives the games he’ll never forget; gets stuck into those who co-opt sport into religion or politics; and opens up about the loss of William Dunlop and his decision to take a break from road racing.
Straight-talking, funny and generous, this is Liam Beckett – telling it like it is!
