Just a Face in the Crowd is a journey through time written by Roger Horwood, a life-long football fan and Stoke City supporter. Spanning seven decades, Roger's stories feature many of the Stoke's greatest heros - including of course Sir Stanley Mathews, Gordon Banks, Alan Hudson and more - plus his memories of seeing George Best, Bobby Chalton and other icons of the game. Alongside Stoke's old Victoria Ground., Roger recalls games at Vale Park, Maine Road, Anfield Old Trafford, Molineux and other great stadiums.

Roger Horwood was born in Hartshill in the Potteries in 1941. It was at the village junior schol in Woore in Shropshire that his love of football and cricket developed: as a lifelong supporter of Stoke City, Roger has never forgotton his roots in the Potteries and he is proud to be a 'Stokie'.
Whether its cheering the Potters on at an away match or walking the boundary at Woore Cricket Club, his great love is sport. He is a keen ambassador of the Sir Stanley Matthews Coaching Foundation and is donating a proportion of the sales of Just a Face in the Crowd to the charity.
The Sir Stanley Matthews Coaching foundation uis committed to train sports coaches in a range of disciplines, to continue the legacy of Sir Stanley Matthews.
All their coaches and pupils benefit from learning the Stanley Matthews approach to playing and learning with integrity and fairness, and through its work with the Foundation benefits thousands of children and young people each year. The Patron of the Foundation is Jean Gough, Sir Stan's daughter.
