Journalist and football supporter Martin Cooper has written about a season-long journey through the world of non-league football in London.

Cooper visits new stadiums, meets new people and samples the unique atmosphere which lower league matches can generate.

The games he attended were brimming with passion and enthusiasm, as many of the sides were either striving for promotion or battling relegation.

And each of the 11 chapters in 'Football Matters in the Capital' is devoted to a match involving at least one team from London.

He describes his journey to the ground, what the stadium looks like and has to offer, the atmosphere, the fans, as well as uncovering some fascinating historical anecdotes.

The new publication will appeal to all football fans, and especially those who enjoy attending matches, visiting new grounds and experiencing the honest community-led atmosphere of the non-league game.

The London teams included in the book are Fisher, Erith Town, Dulwich Hamlet, Dagenham & Redbridge, Barnet, Haringey Borough, Corinthian Casuals, Tooting & Mitcham United, Uxbridge, Wealdstone, Cray Wanderers, Metropolitan Police, Hendon and Enfield Town.

'Football Matters in the Capital' is available from all good book shops including Amazon.

*Martin Cooper previously wrote Football Matters, a book about non-league football in Kent during 2019-20, a season which ended prematurely due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
