Sports classics!

Plenty of great articles now available on the Sport section of our website. For football fans, there’s an interview with Mick Rathbone (former Everton physio, and author of the much praised book The Smell Of Football), and a look at Merseyside’s many Scottish football managers (Shankly, Walter Smith, Kenny Dalgish, David Moyes etc. – the article’s accompanied by some great Spanner cartoons). For cycling enthusiasts there’s a profile of Andy Wilkinson, a local cyclist who’s broken an incredible number of long distance/endurance records, plus a feature on Ten Minutes Of Hell, the unique cycling event that drew large crowds to the Mersey Tunnel last year. And finally a feature on the Liverpool Trojans explores the fascinating history of baseball in Liverpool and the recent national championship-winning exploits of the Bootle-based Trojans.
