Guiding Me Home and Away
By Dave Thomas
Former England International Dave Thomas is the first top level footballer to be registered blind and awarded a guide dog. Loved by fans of Burnley and Everton, Dave enjoyed his biggest success playing for the free-flowing Queens Park Rangers team in the 1970s which included Terry Venables, Stan Bowles and Gerry Francis. The reward for this rich vein of form at Loftus Road led to eight England international caps. Dave’s autobiography is packed full of stories and anecdotes from the football world involving legends such as Don Revie, Alf Ramsey and Bill Shankly who all shaped his career in one way or another.
