My Autobiography - Martin Offiah; David Lawrenson;

CollinsWillow, 1997, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Pages very gently age-tanned.

Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “He is the most famous rugby league player the British game has ever produced. A dazzling runner and lethal finisher, he has scored over 400 tries in nine seasons with Widnes and Wigan, smashing many records along the way both for his club and country. Not bad for someone who didn’t pick up a rugby ball until he was 11 and had never seen a live game of rugby league until he signed for Widnes in 1987 from Rosslyn Park. Offiah tells of his life away from the game, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Lennox Lewis, Ryan Giggs, Mick Hucknall, and appearing in TV soaps, as he contemplates a career outside rugby. There may have been better players but none, in the history of the game, can claim the national recognition that Martin Offiah has achieved.

Size: 9½" x 6¼". Maroon boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 256 pages.
