Pitch Issue No.3

Sporting Consequence

Snooker. Looped
Horses racing. Tracked.
Craig Kieswetter. Sought.
Football title run-ins. Blown the whistle on.
Rugby players. Sized up.
Specs. Savoured.
Everest. Double-glazed and appraised.

Plus…
Paavo Nurmi. America’s Cup ’83 re-lived. Surfer, Kelly Slater. The AFL’s Brendan Fevola. Best backpacks n’ sports books. All-in-all, we think it’s nigh-on unmissable. So, simply, don’t.

Inside This Issue…
Head injury gets taken with utmost seriousness by Pitch editor, Andy Afford. There’s a new book out about Leeds United boss, Don Revie. The history of The Isle of Man TT is plotted in all its high-speed and often dangerous glory by David Wright. There’s a poem, courtesy of Ian McMillan. Cricket World Cup winner Liam Plunkett writes a letter from America. And we say goodbye to such luminaries as Doddie Weir, Nick Bollettieri and the late great Pelé.

“Pitch is such an excellent title, and I think it's a great addition to the sports press. What I like about it is that it covers all sport, which is great, there was a gap in the market for that, for an all-round title. Excellent design too, the cover is beautiful. ”
