In this follow-up to his award-winning book An Ordinary Spectator: 50 Years of Watching Sport, John Rigg presents a collection of his wide-ranging sports writing over the last five years.

Still An Ordinary Spectator: Five More Years of Watching Sport captures the thrill of watching some of the best sportsmen of the modern era Ė Rory McIlroy, Robert Lewandowski, Cameron Smith et al Ė at the top of their game. But itís not all star athletes; John also introduces the reader to the casual acquaintances he has encountered and the local sporting events he has watched during this most recent stage of his long sports-spectating journey.

From high-school American football in San Antonio to club cricket in Saltaire, the book reflects on sportís inherent capacity to act as a barometer of the society around it with a rich combination of contemporary detail and historical digression.

“The personal service I received was superior. No query or problem was left unanswered or unattended.”
