Harrogate Town assistant manager writes autobiography
8:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in Sport
HARROGATE Town assistant manager John McDermott has published an autobiography, writes Jack Amor.
It’s Not All Black and White explores his legendary career at Grimsby Town, gaining 754 appearances, which won him the PFA merit award.
The book is co-written by Simon Ashberry, a local journalist, who said: “It’s a great read as John is full of amusing anecdotes and hilarious stories.
“We named it ‘It’s Not All Black And White’ because while it is Grimsby’s kit colour, it is also the theme of John’s autobiography.
“He explains the pros and cons of being loyal to the same club for 20 years, which eventually comes back to haunt him.”
But added Ashberry: “Not only does the book go into detail about his Grimsby career, his years at Harrogate are also explained in the closing chapter.”
There will be an evening with McDermott hosted by the Mariners Trust at Grimsby Town, Friday, Ausgust 30, and a book signing session at Waterstones in Grimsby at noon on Sunday, September 8.
The book will also be on sale in the Harrogate Town club shop at the Wetherby Road ground.
