Clarke Carlisle

Join former PNE footballer Clarke Carlisle for a talk about his new autobiography You Don’t Know Me, But... A Footballer’s Life.

SilverDell, which is located on Poulton Street in Kirkham, hosts a book launch night with a Q&A session on September 16.

Acclaimed as Britain’s Brainiest Footballer for his performance on game show Countdown, Clarke is an ambassador for the Kick It Out scheme which campaigns for equality in football.

In July he presented a documentary called Football’s Suicide Secret, which tackled the issues of mental health in football.

The book speaks of these troubles in the game, and looks back at his career from his early days in England’s Under-21s, battles with alcohol problems and a late arrival to the Premier League with Burnley.

Tickets for the event at Blackpool Football Club are £16.99 per person and include a signed hardback copy of the book. For more information or to purchase from SilverDell bookshop call 01772 683444 or email info@silverdellbooks.com..
