Alf Ramsey Knew My Grandfather archiveIn 1909 a team of raggy-trousered miners from West Auckland in County Durham - most of whom had never left their home town - are mistakenly invited to represent England in the first-ever world football competition in Turin.Selling their possessions to pay for the trip they find themselves away from their home and families and out of their depth, culturally, financially and sportingly. Despite this the underdogs roll up their sleeves and take on the world, winning the trophy. They went to Italy as miners and came back heroes.

Author Ed Waugh. Author Trevor Wood.
