Former Boston Grammar School student Richard O. Smith has written a tome entitled Britain’s Most Eccentric Sports…
Richard, who grew up in Freiston, started his writing career as Freiston and Butterwick correspondent for The Standard, before setting up the Boston United Fanzine From Behind Your Fences.
He was named as National Football Writer of the Year as a result of his work on this, which led him to work with The Independent and When Saturday Comes.
He later started writing for The Now Show – a news quiz on Radio Four presented by Hugh Dennis and Richard Punt.
Richard today tweeted:
A good price for 2 years of my life! Britain’s Most Eccentric Sports (foreword by Henning Wehn) now £4 on Amazon!
Footnote: Richard did not ask me to post this so I offer it as editorial rather than as an advert. If you choose to buy his book then all well and good. If you object to this post then let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
