Edge competition: Winners announced

WE had a fantastic response to our competition to win a free copy of Ben Lyttleton's brilliant new book Edge.

The question was as follows:

One of the chapters in the book addresses how to manage a maverick and inspired us to write this piece. Which coach is quoted as saying the following...?

"Geniuses aren’t always easy people to live with. But their contributions produce such a jump in quality that they deserve the collective hard work and support. There is a transaction between the genius and the team - this genius will make me better and help me win a World Cup."

A. Thomas Tuchel

B. Didier Deschamps

C. Jorge Valdano

D. Graham Potter

The answer, of course, was C and the 10 lucky winners are:

  1. Tim Laver (Bathford)
  2. James Walsh (Chesterfield)
  3. Luke Cheyne (Coventry)
  4. Tim Hallas (Harrogate)
  5. Mike Taylor (Swindon)
  6. Akin Lord (Carlton-Le-Moorland)
  7. Gareth Cottiss (Hertford)
  8. Imtiaz Janjua (Coventry)
  9. Ashvir Johal (Leicester)
  10. Demetris Kyprianou (Bushey)

Hope you enjoy the book!
