To the backdrop of driving through clouds to Oldham, to driving rain in Bristol, Son of My Father explores the changing relationship between father, son and their football club. From the eyes of a hero-worshipping four-year-old, through to a relationship of mutual admiration and shared understanding, via the angst and traumatic misunderstandings of an adolescent, matches from Leyton to Liverpool punctuate a story about growing up at the end of the second millennium. The novel includes the family life as well as the football and what it was like supporting Derby County in a house occupied by a brother whose allegiance stood steadfast towards rivals Nottingham Forest. It also covers the friendships that were made at school, just because we supported the same team. Along with the changing faces of managers and players: the fads, news and music of the eighties and nineties are brought to life, as well as the dawning of the new millennium where overnight we all realised that despite the Y2K Bug promising computer meltdown, 1 January 2000 was just the same as 31 December 1999. Son of My Father charts the relationship between the author, his Dad and Derby County Football Club, from their first visit together to the Baseball Ground in November 1979 and through two and a half decades spent watching their team. Craig Trembirth was born in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, on the first day of 1975. His Dad took him to Derby Countys Baseball Ground in 1979 before hed even gone to school. He was educated in Derbyshire before emerging with a degree from Durham University. After a string of temporary jobs and a year in Bristol, Craig then returned to the East Midlands and spent nine years teaching road safety lessons in schools, first in Nottingham and then in Derby.
