About the Author

After studying the history of everything at Goldsmiths College, Simon Mugford worked at the Science Museum making paper aeroplanes and setting fire to hydrogen balloons. Despite being a fully-grown man, his favourite subjects include dinosaurs, robots, rockets, loud music and Star Wars. An Ipswich Town fan since they won the FA Cup in 1978 (it's true - look it up) he lives in Kent with his wife, daughter, and a cat with two names. Iain Spragg is a sports journalist who has written for The Daily Telegraph and The Times. Adrian Clarke is now a freelance sports writer, contributing to a number of national newspapers in the UK.
