Midfield maestro Billy Letford clashes with Joe Dunthorne

Here is a brilliant, brilliant half-hour Radio 4 documentary made by Joe Dunthorne about the England Writers Football Team’s visit to play the Scotland Writers Football Team in December.

Sure I’ve mentioned it once or twice, but I was playing that day, and we won 4-2. Anyway, it was a fantastic weekend, and this documentary is a great tribute to the sporting nature of proceedings. I think you can hear me shouting something in the background at some point. You should listen out for Graham Joyce’s hilarious German shower anecdote, worth listening to for that alone.

Had a fantastic weekend with the English lads, and we’re heading down there for a rematch sometime in the spring, details tbc.

    There are rumours that s. b. is trying to set up a Great Britain Team to go to a tournament in
    Israel this coming June. The reasom being that half of the England team don’t want to take
    part in such a propaganda event, and therefore needs Scottish players to fill in the ranks.
    Or why not an Imperial Team – but without Arundhati Roy and the Aussies?
    What do you think?
    The Norwegian team is not going, by the way.
