To help promote his forthcoming book “Bouncing Back”, our very own Liam Rose will be recreating his heroic tale endured during a turbulent 2012.
As well as conquering his on-going demons and persecution over being a “ginger kid” the 20-year-old has in the past few months, broke his leg and lost his job.
But, remarkably, the extraordinary young man “Bounced Back” by becoming Manor Park’s team manager while recovering from injury – and almost immediately gained a route back to employment.
“I’ve been to some dark places, I even contemplated, ending it all, you know,” said Rose. “But fortunately there were no flats available in Atherstone, and from then on in, I’ve just gone from strength to strength.”
With the help of Fishing Monthly columnist Michael Douglas and club cartoonist Jason Douglas, Liam’s publication shares how he managed to shrug off adversity, and stride forward into positivity.
“Everything can be going along swimmingly in life, but you never know when it can hit you, bang, Chris Goode can come from anywhere,” explained Rose.
“You can never plan ahead for a Chris Goode, just ask Gaz Hammond, but what I’m saying is, there is hope beyond being “Gooded”.”
The book is available from non-reputable goods stores, or by leaving £10 under a brick by the side of the pitch.
Liam’s motivational speech gets underway from 8am on Sunday morning, he will be joined by his “Nause Crew” brothers Tom Benn, Charlie Wilson and Chris Goode who will also perform their charity single, to benefit those unfortunate enough to have been, Gooded.
