But what about the boys of 1976? Wales’ strangely unsung success of the 1976 European Championships is finally celebrated in a new book by Nick Burnell – Trailing Clouds of Glory: Welsh Football’s Forgotten Heroes of 1976, which fêtes the success and achievement of a group of people who restored pride in the Welsh football jersey. The book is also the Books Council of Wales’ Book of the Month for November 2019.  read more
