The novel probes the expectations and conflicts that inhabit the generation gap in an eye-wateringly honest account of modern fatherhood.Kevo is the inept manager who has transformed the Clifton Colts from league runners up to a team who’ve failed to win a game all season. His sole tactical aim appears to be making his own under-skilled son, Jamie, look good to the many big-club scouts he invites to their games. Sparky’s son, Lee, is the captain and a bully who reflects his own father’s aggressive ambition for his son’s future career. Jimmy doesn’t want to take his 13 year-old son to the tournament in Belgium, and Tom doesn’t want his dad to take him either- he’d much rather be allowed to go alone and avoid spending time with a parent he doesn’t know particularly well.Jimmy’s misery is checked by the surprise addition to this ‘dads and lads’ trip of Billy Shannon, an old school friend of Jimmy’s who he hasn’t seen in twenty years.

They grew up in Harehills, the Irish area of Leeds, and their families are linked by a terrible occurrence in the western mountains of County Mayo in the 1920s – the parable of the prodigal father – that might yet impact on Billy’s secret connection with the charismatic young goal-keeper, Begsy.A family-saga, comedy and sporting novel, The Prodigal Fathers will have you laughing out loud and ultimately cheering your heart out for these motley underdogs in this fist-pumping, uplifting tale with a heart as big as Wembley stadium.
