Synopsis :

Urban neighbours Celtic and Rangers are known throughout British football as 'The Old Firm', but for Ipswich Town and Norwich City it's more the case of 'The Old Farm'. Separated by 40 miles of arable fields and woodland, the Canaries and the Tractor Boys have been doing battle for more than 100 years, just like their counterparts in Glasgow. Eastern England may be a footballing outpost, but its derby games arouse massive local interest. The first East Anglia derby game was in 1902 and by 2005 there had been 140 hard-fought contests. This book traces the history of a soccer rivalry that is intense and unique.


Our verdict :

Rob Hadgraft writes about Ipswich Town vs Norwich City in 16 chapters each describing a period in the history of this derby (chronological order). There are very few statistics and not that many pics so it's a real story book. The story of the East Anglian Derby!
