The Bumper Book of Fulham Strikers



IT MAY NOT be sunshine on the pitch right now, but Ashwater always provides something to lift the Fulham spirits.

This year it’s…FULHAM STRIKERS.

We have decided to produce a LIMITED EDITION on a first come, first served basis. It is possible that this will be the FINAL Ashwater publication, so if you want another great piece of written Fulham history – then please don’t leave it too late! We think it’s the best book we’ve done, and it will sell out  It’s an ideal Christmas present for three generations of Fulham fans, young & old.

Here’s just a teaser ………………..



 The book is a quality hardback publication

A4 size (8.5” x 12”)

In an eight-decade sequence

With 272 pages and in full colour

It contains well over 250 pictures

A number of which have never been previously seen.

The book will detail one hundred ‘number 9s’, centre forwards and principal goalscorers from the Second World War until the end of last season – ‘From Beddy to Berbatov’. For all of the principal seventy-five players, it will detail their youth career, careers at previous clubs, concentrating obviously on their time at Craven Cottage. Also included will be their playing careers after leaving Fulham including non-league and, if known, what they did after leaving the game. Their history will include clubs abroad and their international careers.

Their Fulham period will detail highlights, hat-tricks and special matches and anecdotal material, and will also analyse what kind of player he was, his attributes and style. Each player will have playing statistics and will be illustrated with Ken Coton/Ashwater pictures augmented by some newspaper and private images.

Our list of principal strikers includes all those you’d expect to find, such as Maurice Cook, Vic Halom, Gordon Davies, Leroy Rosenior, Mike Conroy, Geoff Horsfield, Barry Hayles and Brian McBride, and some names that may be less familiar, such as Allan Jones, Dave Metchick, George Johnston, Dale Tempest and Tony Thorpe. In between is a whole host of players from Bedford Jezzard to Bobby Zamora, from Jackie Henderson to Steve Marlet.

For a complete list of all seventy-five principal strikers in the book – please see the ‘here’ link on the Ashwater website

The book will also give cameo details of twenty-five less prolific forwards who have worn the number 9 shirt for the Whites, such as Alf Stokes, Steve Milton, George Georgiou, Kevin Betsy and Karl Heinz Riedle.

The book is completed by a number of intriguing statistical tables, facts and figures.
