Readers of this blog might remember that in 2018 Soccer Mad Boffin Alex contributed to a book that was authored by ex-Seattle Sounders FC team captain Ade Webster.
Ade has been busy since then writing another book, with his friend and former team-mate Tony Chursky, the former goalkeeper of the Sounders as well as Canadian National Team.
It is a great book, well worth a read especially for anyone interested in the history of North American soccer and the NASL.
The authors will be donating proceeds from sales of the book to charities.
The book is available to buy now as paperback or e-book:
Tracing the arc of their 46-year friendship, Adrian Webster and Tony Chursky share the inspiring highs and the deflating lows of being professional soccer players in the early years of the Seattle Sounders in the North American Soccer League. Providing anecdotes and first-hand news accounts from the past, they demonstrate how their time together, both before and during the Sounders years, shaped the paths they chose after their careers came to a close.
Sounders Together, Friends Forever is an uplifting book by Adrian Webster and Tony Chursky, two former Seattle Sounders. It traces the highs and lows of soccer, with a friendship lasting from the beginning of the professional game in North America, and follows two players with hopes and visions for their soccer careers, revealing all the hard work and sacrifices chasing their dream of playing against top players and elite teams of the early 1970’s.
