I've now worked through all of Tom's changes and sent the manuscript back to him. I'm quite pleased with a lot of the new material - there's even a mention of Bromley's (even though he was born in Brixton) favourite son, David Bowie as well as a story about Jacob's Club Biscuits that I had totally forgotten.
Altogether, the book has grown by around 8,000 words, and it now feels around the right length.
At least Tom should be in a good frame of mind when he reads it. His team, York City, have embarked on a two-match unbeaten run since parting company with their coach. Bromley, meanwhile, have reverted to type after a promising start to the season and are now drifting down the table.
