Anthony Potts was born in 1972 in South London. He is a new author who has just released his debut novel Eye on the Ball.
The book is based on his experiences and insider’s knowledge from his time as a Professional footballer. In the book he takes an uncompromising look at the harsh world of professional sports.
On leaving school he joined Tottenham Hotspur on YTS forms before signing a 3-year professional contract. He left Tottenham in 1992 and travelled to New Zealand to play for Wellington United. Since returning to England he has played and coached semi-professionally for a number of non-league football clubs. He is a qualified football coach and has managed at academy level for Charlton Athletic.
Injury problems meant that he had to retrain as a teacher in 1995. He has now been a teacher for more than 20 years at various Inner London schools. He is currently working as a Primary schoolteacher at Ningbo British International School in Ningbo, China. He is married to Sonya Potts and has two step-sons called Jack and Mitchell.
