In Peter Matthews’ excellent biography, John Trollope: Record Breaker, the Swindon Town Football legend gives an insight into life as one of Bert’s Babes, the glory days of 1969, the break up of that side, the side of the 70’s and his spell as manager and assistant, including the best and worst of the Macari era. He also speaks, for the first time, about his dismissal by Steve McMahon.

John Trollope: Record Breaker is a great read for anyone interested in decades of Swindon Town history and football of a bygone era.
