A detailed biography of Nicholas Lane ('Pa') Jackson, historically acknowledged as the founding father of the famous Corinthian Football Club. Jackson has been hailed as the architect, visionary and genius behind this celebrated club but 'Pa', as he was affectionately known, may not have been what he seemed. An incorrigible self-publicist and social climber, he cultivated the appearance of a sophisticated English gentleman and a 'grand old man of sport' and this book investigates whether the club's historians fabricated an undeserved reputation. Published in 2023.
