I am probably the furthest away from a football fan as you can get – I swiftly change the channel when it pops up on TV, roll my eyes at sports news, and am still confused at how anyone can sit through even six minutes of a game. To put it simply, I don’t have a care for football. Yet surprisingly, Six Added Minutes made me feel quite the opposite while reading.

About Johnnie Lowery
Johnnie is a football writer. His first book, Six Added Minutes, was written while he was at university and published in November 2019. With strong reviews from the likes of Jeremy Vine and Jacqui Oatley, it is selling well online. His second book, Match Fit, explores mental health in football. It looks to raise mental health awareness and is inspired by Lowery’s own struggles as a teenager, when he did not understand why he was feeling down.
