Clough book wins William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award

From The Guardian overnight:

Brian Clough, believed by many to be the greatest manager England never had, is the subject of this year's William Hill Sports Book of the Year. Provided You Don't Kiss Me, (Fourth Estate) written by the former Nottingham Evening Post writer Duncan Hamilton, is an analysis of the former Derby County, Leeds and Forest manager, based on the story of his 20-year relationship with Clough.

Hamilton's work held off five other shortlisted books, including the first volume of Sir Bobby Charlton's autobiography, written with James Lawton, to win the award, which consists of £18,000 cash, a £2,000 free bet from the sponsor and a specially commissioned, hand-bound copy of his book.
