Nobody has ever come close to matching Mick Channon's astonishing feats in a double sporting life that has seen him go from scoring dozens of goals for England to preparing top thoroughbreds as a racehorse trainer. Born in a tiny thatched cottage on Salisbury Plain, the footballer now owns one of the most illustrious racing stables in England, which he bought from the Queen. His heart-warming story takes him from Southampton to Manchester City to Norwich and from Wembley to Ascot, and takes in: FA & League Cup Final winner's medals; five years under four different England managers; eleven years boozing and gambling at the Dell; half-crippled on the soccer scrapheap; training more than 100 winners in a single Flat racing season
