Very much in the style of Nick Hornby, Marching Together is the most Yorkshire book ever to be set in Belgium, and follows a motley group of soccer fans as they visit the continent and share secrets, lies, and their love of the game. Six Leeds United supporters set off for a short break in Bruges. Two brothers, Allan and Johnny Collins, the former a successful businessman, the latter just out of prison, are visiting great-grandad’s grave on the Western Front. They’re joined by Johnny’s bandmates, Craig and Terry; the tomboy Petra, and the out-of-sorts Yvonne, who failed to persuade estranged husband Tony to accompany her. For all the political events, historic and current, that surround them, they find it difficult to avoid discussion of their beloved soccer club as it languishes in the second tier of English football. Meanwhile other obsessions, secrets, and ambitions lie within the heart of each, and as their trip progresses they find it is more than just the club that binds them together.
