We are delighted to announce that footballer Dave Edwards is hoping to come to Burway Books to sign copies of his book, ‘Living My Dream‘. Please watch this space for further information and a date – Dave is having to fit this in around all his other commitments (you can reserve your copy of the book by popping into the shop or contacting us).
As a football-mad young boy growing up in rural Shropshire, Dave dreamt of playing the game professionally and perhaps, one day, wearing the red shirt of his father’s homeland – Wales. ‘Living My Dream‘ is the frank and fascinating story of what it took for him to achieve his life’s ambition, and describes how his dedication and commitement to the game he loves has enabled him to enjoy a successful 16-year career with over 400 club appearances for Shrewsbury Town, Luton Town, Wolves and now Reading. He has also won international caps for Wales, including reaching the semi-finals of the 2016 European Championships. He is the first member of the Welsh squad to tell the story of that magical month.
