My Favourite Day as a Fan – Adam Perry

It has been 27 years since I first walked down the road to a wet and windy Copthall Stadium to watch a game of rugby league. As a sports nut growing up in North London, it was only ever about football; Tottenham or Arsenal. I was the former, my two brothers the latter. I clearly […]
