As the manager of Sheffield Wednesday and Everton, Harry Catterick amassed more top flight points in the 1960s than all his rivals, finishing outside the top 6 on only one occasion. Yet, unfairly, he stands in the shadows of contemporaries such as Bill Shankly, Don Revie and Brian Clough in the public consciousness.Following extensive research, including being given unique access to the Catterick family's documents and photographs, Rob Sawyer has recounted the life of this football great for the very first time. It is a story taking in a working class childhood in County Durham, adolescence in Stockport, a playing career stymied by misfortune, the struggles of a lower league managerial apprenticeship, heady times of top-flight success, managerial downfall and ill-health, contentment in semi-retirement and an untimely early passing - fittingly in the place he is most closely associated with.
