Over the past week we have been fortunate to welcome new Football Collective member Roger Domeneghetti to the group. Roger presented at the Football, Politics and Popular Culture conference in Limerick.

In this post we would like to bring you attention to his recent book:

From the Back Page to the Front Room: Football’s Journey Through the English Media

From the days of folk football to the digital age. From Match of the Day to Fever Pitch; soccer specials to lads mags, From the Back Page to the Front Room tells the story of how the media and football have developed and become almost indistinguishable. The book was shortlisted for the 2015 LORD ABERDARE LITERARY PRIZE FOR SPORTS HISTORY!

Roger Domeneghetti is a lecturer in journalism at Northumbria University and the Morning Star’s North East football correspondent and a journalist for more than 20 years. You can read find more details about his book here: Book Details Here
