Gus Honeybun... Your Boys Took One Hell of a Beating tells the story of a lifetime aboard the emotional roller-coaster of inconsistency which is Exeter City - one of English football's most unfashionable and unsuccessful clubs. Like many football fans, author Simon Carter's football supporting life is a long way from the glitz and glamour of the Premier League; instead its high points are memorable trips to Halifax, Crewe, Carlisle and Maidstone. With the self-deprecation you'd expect from an Exeter City fan, on his travels with the Grecians he meets Brad Pitt and Freddie Starr; writes about Uri Geller in the local newspaper... with miserable consequences; and wins a tenner for scoring a goal in front of 3,000 fans - albeit past a small girl dressed in a large turkey costume! Gus Honeybun... Your Boys Took One Hell of a Beating provides the perfect antidote to those many books which chart tales of glory and success, and gives a light-hearted and real-life insight into what it's like being a fan on the bottom rung of the ladder that is English professional football.
