Diary of a Football Nobody
Diary of a Football Nobody is based on former Notts County player David McVay’s hilarious memoir Steak…Diana Ross.
This new play is written by acclaimed Nottinghamshire writer William Ivory, whose recent successes include the screen play for Made in Dagenham and his TV adaptation of D.H. Lawrence’s Women in Love.
It’s a candid warts-and-all tale of what it was like to play football in the 1970s – a world far removed from the riches and celebrity of the modern game. Full of down-to-earth comedy and tales of boozing, bust-ups and the unique style of the legendary Jimmy Sirrel, Diary of a Football Nobody takes audiences on a light-hearted journey to a bygone age of football and marks Notts county’s 150th anniversary.
