Don Masson autobiography

Enjoy the story of a club legend

15 September 2020

Midfield maestro Don Masson, the fans' choice as Notts County’s ‘Best Ever Player’ after he inspired our remarkable climb from the Fourth Division to the First, has written his autobiography.

Still Saying Sorry, due out in October and priced £20, is the compelling story of a man still haunted by the fact that he missed a penalty against Peru in 1978, playing for Scotland in the World Cup Finals in Argentina.

There’s a fascinating insight into life at the top in London when he starred in the Queen’s Park Rangers team that finished as runners-up to Liverpool but most of all, it deals with his epic achievements in three spells at Meadow Lane.

We were 91st in the Football League when he joined us from Middlesbrough. By the time he retired, we were comfortably positioned in the top flight and Masson had become the first player ever to captain the same club to three promotions.

This brutally honest autobiography deals full on with what he describes as the “horrible” side of his character, and how personal tragedy and becoming a Christian drastically changed his life.

Still Saying Sorry will introduce you to the Don Masson that few people know - a very private man who always tried to shy away from publicity. Now he feels ready to tell his story and it’s compulsive reading, especially for fans who grew up in the era of Jimmy Sirrel and Jack Dunnett.
