AUTHOR & FREELANCE JOURNALIST
Formerly the sports editor at the Financial Times, Charlie has managed to combine his two great passions of writing and sport through a long career in journalism.
Football has dominated his life from a very early age. A passion passed down through the generations, Crewe Alexandra is in his blood.
His first book, Generation Game, was published in spring 2019.
"A very moving and captivating read. They say the sign of a good book is if you don't want to put it down - and I devoured it in one sitting."
"A touching and intriguing football fan memoir. Inspired by a new love, and horrified by a child abuse scandal at his club, Morris plunges back through the history of his family and its town to understand 100 years of pain, loss and devotion."
Author of Brilliant Orange and Those Feet
"At times painfully honest, including about Crewe's child-abuse scandal, Morris admits to using football to hide from bereavement and sorrow much as did his grandfather, damaged by the first world war. This book is as much about male English emotional repression as about football."
