A NEW best-selling Brighton & Hove Albion paperback is set for a formal launch at two Sussex venues later this month and it also promises to be a gourmet feast of football food.

Death in Grimsby – 50 Years Following Brighton & Hove Albion was written, edited and published by Albion fan Nic Outterside, and given a soft launch in May among friends and fellow fans.

It quickly became a best seller and stands at Number 2 in the Amazon Football Reference sales chart and at Number 3 in their Most Wished For chart.

The book’s formal launch, with personal signings and special guests, will take place at two venues in Brighton and Worthing on the eve of the Albion’s first home game of the 2019/20 season against West Ham on 17 August.

The first launch event is from 7pm on Thursday 15 August at the Caxton Arms, North Gardens, Brighton. The second event is from 6pm on Friday 16 August at the Castle Ale House, Newland Road, Worthing.

And both evenings will feature free samples of football food from around the UK.

One of the most popular features of Death in Grimsby are the sections entitled Who Ate All the Pies, which look at the diverse array of food and drink available at different football grounds.

So Nic has arranged samples of unique foods from Barnsley, Berwick Rangers, Birmingham City, Huddersfield Town, Leeds United, Preston North End, Wolves and Wrexham.

These include Scotch pies, Welsh cakes, Yorkshire meat and potato pies, Lancashire butter pies, Birmingham flapjack, Barnsley pork pies, genuine Wolverhampton pork crackling and take-home sachets of Bovril!

“I wanted the launch to be a little different from the usual and the way to book buyers and a football fans’ hearts is clearly through their stomachs,” joked Nic.

“So I hope that those who attend the launch events will also sample a bit of genuine football fayre.”

Death in Grimsby charts Nic’s passion for his far from ordinary home town club for more than half a century. Among 50,000 words and 115 images it is a collection of personal stories which will resonate with every football supporter, no matter which club they may follow.

Death in Grimsby – 50 Years Following Brighton & Hove Albion is available as a large format paperback priced at £10.49 with FREE UK delivery from Amazon:

A Kindle e-book edition of the book is also available for £3.00 at:
