I recently provided the artwork for a Special Edition of Bob Latchford’s autobiography ‘A Different Road’. Each book is hand signed by the Everton legend and is limited to a print run of 289, one for each of his EFC appearances. It was a real privilege to be involved in this project, especially as Bobs goalscoring exploits have only been bettered by Dixie Dean and Graeme Sharp.
The book is available now from deCoubertin Books
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Bob Latchford was born in Birmingham in 1951 and started his professional football career with his home town club, Birmingham City, as a teenager. A strong, powerful, traditional English centre forward he became one of the most coveted players in the country, and it took a British record transfer fee to bring him to Everton in February 1974. In total he scored 138 goals in 289 Everton appearances in a seven year spell at Goodison, also earning 12 England caps. He later played for Swansea, NAC Breda, Coventry, Lincoln City and Newport County, finishing up at Merthyr Tydfil. He returned to St Andrews as a youth coach in the mid-1990s, but subsequently turned his back on football following the death of his wife. He now lives in Germany with his partner and two youngest children
