About Me

My name is Andy Ollerenshaw. I'm an author and feature writer, specialising in non-League football. I have written a book about the English FA Cup and have had work published by When Saturday Comes, Late Tackle, Non-League Digest, The Ball Is Round, In Bed With Maradona and numerous club matchday programmes. I also contribute weekly match reports to the Non League Paper. I'm passionate about the non-League game and grassroots football.
