The Second Captains Sports Annual, Vol 2


The Second Captains Sports Annual 

2016 may have been the most grim year in living memory but here's how to get some joy out of it. The Second Captains Sports Annual, Volume 2 is packed full of all the stuff that made the year memorable in a positive sense...yes, mainly Robbie Brady's goals at the Euros. Check out the video below for a sneak peak but be warned, you may shed a tear...

Ken Early reveals his Euro 2016 diary, taking in Brexit, rioting and ecstatically weeping brothers. Eoin McDevitt goes to Belfast to meet Michael Conlan, the man at the centre of the omni-shambles that was the Olympic Games. We also sit down for a feature-length interview with Irish footballing institution Richard Dunne and examine the phenomenon of the Icelandic football team with Anton Ingi Sveinbjornsson.

From Dan Leydon's spectacular illustrated cover to our final chapter 'Game Zone' (as introduced by our new mascot 'Stephen the Stink Badger') there's something for all the Second Captains loving idiots in your life.

Other highlights in the beautifully designed 112 pages include:
