Those were the days

£46.99

Product description

Those were the days' is Clive Corbett's first book, a work that spans the period of his own upbringing in the Black Country from a seven year old in Amblecote, through his adolescent years in Pensnett to the start of university life in Liverpool. Raised by parents whose own experiences in the fifties would ensure that there would be no choice over his footballing allegiance, he was educated under the great George Yardley at the Brook Primary before joining Brierley Hill Grammar School.

During a four-year exile on Merseyside, Clive gained a degree in Medieval and Modern History and a PGCE qualification that allowed him to return in 1979 to the promised land to start a teaching career in Hagley. It was in Liverpool that he met his future wife Heather whom he lured back to the Midlands to witness at close quarters the trials and tribulations of following the Wolves. The birth of two children, Emily and Tom, did nothing to make him grow up as they were simply snared into his sad infatuation with all things Wolves.

Clive currently lives in Kingswinford and follows a double life that sees him walk a continuously fine line between reality and delusion. Although in his day job he feigns respectability and seriousness as the head teacher of a large Worcestershire high school, he is all too easily drawn back into the twilight world of the Golden Palace.
