John Trollope: Record Breaker

Peter Matthews

John Trollope MBE holds a record that is unlikely to be beaten: between 1960 and 1980 he played 770 league games for Swindon Town - a record number of league appearances for one club. This book tells the remarkable story, not only of his playing career, but also his subsequent 16 years of service to the club as manager and coach.
The book has been produced with John Trollope's full cooperation and his strident views about those he played with and worked with, from Don Rogers to Glen Hoddle are given free rein. He tells about his life as a professional footballer in a game that was very different from the sport we know today.
Twenty-five years have now passed since John broke his record. This book is a tribute to a remarkable achievement and an incredible career, and is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in John, Swindon Town and the history of football in this country.
