This week you can win a copy of Superfan!
Superfan’ Morris Keston has organised over 25 testimonial matches and other fund-raising dinners and events for footballing legends over the years, including ones for Geoff Hurst, Gordon Banks and the late Bobby Moore.
He says: “Before top players could demand £100,000 a week, the stars of yesteryear would usually hit the panic button when their playing days looked numbered. A testimonial was an opportunity to finally get a decent payday and I was only too happy to help my friends in football earn a few quid out of them. Indeed, it was a privilege.”
