The Second Captains Sports Annual, Vol 1


The Second Captains Sports Annual, Volume 1 is the book you've been waiting for your entire life. Well, your entire life since you stopped reading sports annuals as a child.

There's more feature writing and bad language than your old Shoot! used to contain but expect all the things that made those annuals the very last word in school-ground literary chic.


Highlights of the beautifully designed 122 pages in hardback include:

  • At Home With David O'Doherty: A pictorial essay with Ireland's favourite celebrity

  • Street Footballer: A revealing and exclusive interview with one of Ireland's greatest, Damien Duff by Ken Early

  • This is Abbotstown: The Guardian's amazing cartoonist David Squires on the inner-workings of the FAI

  • The Team Chooses You: Our dear friend and KNBR radio host Brian 'US Murph' Murphy recalls his time in Ireland in 1992 and the team he grew to love

  • The Golden Era of Sportswriting: Eoin McDevitt travels to the US to meet 15-time Pulitzer nominee and friend of Muhammad Ali, Jerry Izenberg

  • You Are The Junior B Manager!: We make up the scenarios, can YOU make the hard calls?

  • Let Them Ask Cake: Relationship and sporting advice from Roscommon goalkeeping legend Shane Curran

  • A Footballers Life: You choose the moves for our hero Terry Monaghan, illustration by the brilliant Colm Mac AthIaoich

  • And If You Don't Know, Now You Know: From Las Vegas to Crumlin, Ken Early explains the rise of the phenomenon of Irish sport, Conor McGregor

Plus games, cartoons, additional writing from Amy O'Connor, Murph and Simon Hick, our #PBESO gallery in print and much, much more!

This is the ultimate loving gift for the Second Captains fan in your family. Or a cousin you don't really like. Going out with a fella for less than three months, or more than three years? Then the Second Captains Sports Annual, Volume 1 is for you.

This book has been produced by Second Captains and Sweatshop Media, photography throughout with thanks to INPHO and is printed in Ireland.
