This behind-the-scenes glimpse of a non-league football club offers the unusual opportunity of viewing an entire football season at one club from multiple viewpoints. Eastleigh Football Club is an ambitious semi-professional club that in 2013/2014 competed in the Football Conference South. Ten years earlier, they were a much smaller club, playing in their local regional league. Progress from that lowly status saw the team spend the 2013/2014 campaign challenging for the Conference South league title and promotion into the Conference Premier Division. The book follows the fortunes of the men who played during that season. It charts the highs and lows experienced by the directors, the manager, staff and supporters, and provides a candid view of the club's day-to-day life. This first-hand account tells the compelling story of life on and off the pitch at the club and the unfolding events of the season. Featuring a team striving to achieve promotion into the Conference Premier and reach Wembley in the FA Trophy, this book will be enjoyed by football fans at any level. `The More We Win, The Better It Will Be' also details author Paul's transition from being a lifelong Everton supporter into developing an obsession with his local non-league club, and his own personal experiences after becoming closely involved with the team.
