Everyone loves an FA Cup giant-killing: a smug Premier League team being knocked out by the plucky underdogs. In these days of oligarch owners, superstar managers and players on sky-high wages, the tide is turning against the big teams as fans search for football with a soul.Enter non-league football – the heartland of the beautiful game. Nige Tassell spends a season following top dogs Tranmere Rovers as they attempt to get back into the Football League, and inhabitants of the ‘bottom corner’ Bishop Sutton, who are just trying to get eleven men on a pitch. He tells the stories of this corner of society – the internationals playing eighth-tier football, the agony and the ecstasy of a Cup run, and the volunteers who keep the sport going.

Filled with interviews with the players, the managers, the owners, the volunteers taking tickets and running the hot-dog stand, and the fans who turn up every Saturday, The Bottom Corner is a fascinating insight into the win-or-die drama of non-league football.

Nige Tassell is a freelance writer whose work has appeared in the pages of FourFourTwo, The Guardian, Sunday Times, Esquire, Q, and The Word. He was the writer/editor of the 2014 bookazine World In Motion that chronicled the history of the England team at the World Cup. He is also the author of Mr Gig: One Man's Search For The Soul Of Live Music.
