It Was Never My Ambition To Become A Hooker

By Neil Clark

SIGNED & INSCRIBED "To Sidmouth RFC, Thanks for all your support. Neil Clark" In a refreshingly honest and sometimes brutal account of his life, Neil Clark reveals his personal turmoil and tough journey to the top flight of English rugby. Neil Clark might not be a household name, but he is one of the under-rated rugby players who took Exeter Chiefs to the heights of the English Premiership and the Heineken Cup. Overcoming a difficult childhood, serious injury and being released by a club that no longer wanted him, Clark was a rugby journeyman in the south-west, playing for Bristol, Bath and Cornish All Blacks before finding a home at Exeter Chiefs. There he helped the club gain promotion and began to keep a diary of his time in rugby's top division. This is the inspiring story of how a troubled youngster became a Premiership rugby player – with real blood, gallons of sweat and plenty of tears.'See PhotosExeter Chiefs & Sidmouth 7 Rugby Interest.

A Devon Family; The Story of the Aclands. Signed Copy

By Acland, Anne : Signed Copy

Hardback. Very Good Book and Very Good Wrapper. Signed by Anne Acland on title page. The Aclands have lived in Devon since at least the 12th century, and the family is probably the oldest in the county which can claim a direct descent in the male line, as well as being the most distinguished in politics. Yet, in spite of a wealth of material, its history has never been written until now. Lady Acland, wife of Sir Richard Acland, the 15th Baronet, has been studying the family archives ever since she took over the management of the Acland estates at the outbreak of war in 1939. Her researches have revealed a remarkable story, not only in its incidents of intrinsic interest, but in the extraordinary consistency of character and temperament over many generations conferred by the Acland genes.
