Punky - The Paul Randall Story
There is also an ebook version available of this title, it is for sale from Amazon or your usual provider.
“Punky” is not your usual birds, booze and betting footballer autobiography although this lad from Glastonbury was certainly no saint. It’s the story of determination, family support and never giving up on a dream.
As a footballer, Paul Randall was always popular with supporters of every team he played for - from the fans on Bristol Rovers Tote End, to the record breaking goal scoring days at Bath City and Yeovil Town.
Throughout Paul’s retirement he has been constantly asked “why don’t you write a book?" to which his reply was always “one day”. Tragedy struck in Pauls life with the death of his sister Vinny, which has prompted him to tell his story.
'Punky' will strike a chord with any young lad who has been told by a football club you’re not good enough. Paul followed that dream to be a professional footballer.
In a real “Roy of the Rovers” tale he was plucked from working in his local supermarket and playing non-league football to become one of the hottest properties in the game at the time.
