The Long, Long Road to Wembley

By Dave Roberts

One man's obsession with seeing his beloved non-league football team play at Wembley.

Launch of The Long, Long Road to Wembley - you're invited.

Getting the book published has, indeed, been a long, long road, but it's been worth it. I think Unbound have done a great job on the design and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a copy in the next couple of weeks. You should get yours before it appears in the shops and I'd like to thank you again for making it happen.

We're  holding a proper launch for the book at Waterstones in Bromley on the 22nd of August at 7PM. It should be a good evening, which will include MC Mash Hewitt asking  me the tough questions and talking about the book. Joining us for a Q&A will be Bromley FC manager Neil Smith and captain Jack Holland. And as if that wasn't enough there'll be free, but probably inexpensive, wine!

I'd love to see you there - after all, it's because of you that the book exists - but I realise that many of you live a long way away or have other things planned, so won't be able to make it. But you can always watch the live stream on the Bromley FC Facebook page.

If there's anything you'd like to know about the launch, or the book or anything else, please contact me at
