About the Author:
Andy Groom was born in 1978. Encouraged by his family, Andy played football from an early age and accompanied his sister, mum and dad to watch Everton play. As a youngster, Andy enjoyed drawing and would spend his school days doodling the Everton badge and sketching players. Between 1989 and 1993 Andy played for Stoke City School Boy’s, and Alan Ball coached a football session.
As a lifelong Everton fan, Andy has supported the team through good times and bad, making the journey to Goodison and beyond over the years, to witness the team’s triumphs and disappointments. In later life, Andy has been able to put this drawing ability to good use and he has researched, written and illustrated over 300 pictures of his favourite players, including Graeme Sharp, Gary Lineker, Tony Cottee, and Duncan Ferguson, to name but a few.
More recently, Andy has devoted months of his time to research and illustrate the Everton story, a goal he has always wanted to achieve. Andy is also the author England’s World Cup Story: From Winterbottom’s 1950 to Capello’s 2010, a book of facts, figures and quotes for all football aficionados.
