Welcome to a new episode of Between the Lines. This is Martin’s conversation with award-winning sportswriter Ian Ridley about his book Floodlit Dreams, which documents his spell as chairman of his hometown club, Weymouth FC.
We’ve wanted to have Ian on the podcast for a while and when a previous guest, Neil Forsyth, chose Floodlit Dreams as his all-time favourite sports book, we thought it was time to get him on. If you’ve ever dreamed of taking over your own club, then this is for you. As usual, we also dive into the writing process and the behind-the-scenes stories that go into making a book.
