The search switches from Yorkshire to deepest East London where we’ve found one of the books hidden gems. Steve Jones was a non league striker with Billericay when West Ham took a punt on him in 1992. Within a week he’d gone from working part-time in a soap factory to being on the bench in the Premier League. He made 40 top-flight appearances, scoring three goals in those games, in a career that reads like the script of When Saturday Comes. We battled with technical issues during this episode, but have managed to salvage Steve’s best stories, and have added some bonus 1990s content in at the end. Keep it shiney, and enjoy the episode.
