about

Ask any Everton fan whose allegiance stretches back to the 1950s to name their favourite player and the answer will be familiar and enthusiastically uttered: Dave Hickson. Hickson, the only man to turn out for all three Merseyside teams, captivated the city during the decade with his outrageously brave centre forward play. A swashbuckling cavalier, he played like a human battering ram, running through opposing defences with the verve of a Boy's Own hero. With his trademark blond quiff, he looked the part too. In the final months of his life, Hickson finally sat down to record his life story. From being scouted by the legendary Dixie Dean, playing in front of 70,000 plus crowds and vanquishing the mighty Manchester United, to being kicked out of an FA Cup semi final and playing under Bill Shankly this is a compelling and evocative tale of one of football's bygone era. Hickson lovingly recalls a world in which heroes lived alongside their fans and on a Saturday gave everything to bring them pride and joy. With contributions from friends and former teammates, The Cannonball Kid is a beautiful and absorbing story that, like the great man himself, is full of good humour, charm and class.
