I recently provided the artwork for a Special Edition of David Fairclough’s autobiography ‘Supersub’. Each book is hand signed by the Liverpool legend and includes a foreword written by Gerrard Houllier. The print run has been limited to 154, one for each of his LFC appearances and is available now from deCoubertin Books
ABOUT THE AUTHORS
David Fairclough was born in Liverpool in January 1957 and joined his boyhood club as a schoolboy striker. He exploded onto the scene as a 19 year old, his goals helping propel Liverpool to a League and UEFA Cup double – the first silverware of an extraordinary trophy-laden haul over a seven-year first team Anfield career. Despite many crucial goals, a guaranteed starting place was often elusive and he became universally known as ’Supersub’. Fairclough later played in Canada, Switzerland and Belgium as well as spells with Norwich City, Oldham Athletic, Tranmere Rovers and Wigan Athletic. Now a respected football analyst, Fairclough is a familiar face on LFCTV and remains a revered Liverpool legend.
Mark Platt is the author of eight previous books on Liverpool and a producer for LFCTV.
