Owls legend Terry Curran will be at Hillsborough on Saturday to mark the publication of his autobiography ‘Regrets of a Football Maverick’.
TC, now 57, starred for Jack Charlton’s Wednesday for three seasons after dropping down two divisions from Southampton to join the club he supported from childhood.
He won the Third Division’s Golden Boot prize for scoring 24 goals in 1979 and was, of course, Man of the Match in the 4-0 Boxing Day defeat of the Blades. Terry was voted Wednesday’s all-time cult hero in a recent Football Focus poll and his version of ‘Singing the Blues’ still resonates around Hillsborough today!
TC’s rollercoaster story, written with John Brindley and published by Skipton-based Vertical Editions at £16.99, is full of goals and giggles from football back in the day.
Terry will be signing copies of his book at Waterstone’s in Orchard Square, Sheffield, from 11.00am to noon before moving to the Owls Megastore from 1.00pm to 2.30pm on Saturday 6 October when Wednesday host Hull, another of his 13 Football League clubs.
‘Regrets of a Football Maverick’ will be available from the Owls Megastore, good book shops and internet retailers from Saturday 6 October.
