Forest 'Til I Die... I'm Forest 'Til I Die
Following Forest becomes a way of life for many of us. At the City Ground or travelling away we experience moments of elation and exhilaration which become landmarks in our lives. But there are also the low points of despair and disappointment when we feel that all our hopes and dreams have been dashed.
Nottingham Forest Football Club, in partnership with the National Literacy Trust and Legends Publishing, is publishing a new book which will go on sale during the summer of 2010. 'Forest 'Til I Die' will reflect the memories and experiences of supporters both young and old. Players and managers may come and go, but it is the fans who give the permanent character to a club like Nottingham Forest.
And so as a celebration of the fans, this book will reveal the fun, the absurd, the emotional, the peculiar or unbelievable that is part and parcel of following The Reds. We want to meet our longest standing fan! Who travels the farthest to get to home matches? Who has seen more matches than anyone else? Who has the funniest Forest tale? Who are our record breakers? Get in touch so these and many other stories get in to the new book. 'Forest 'Til I Die', real football stories from real football fans... Make sure your memories are included!
Story sessions will also be held at the Forest Study Support Centre as part of the memory-gathering process. Details will be advertised on Forest websites and in the press. If you have a story or set of experiences about yourself, a family member, a neighbour or friend which you feel deserves to go into the book, please get in touch.
Either e-mail your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org or via www.tilidie.co.uk or post them to: 18 Darby Crescent, Sunbury-on-Thames, TW16 5LA. The deadline is 10 June 2010.
