After The Lemons is a 'must have' for every Bath rugby supporter. It is the second volume of a two-part history of the club and tells the remarkable story of how Bath came to dominate the game of rugby union in the 1980s and 1990s as no English club had done before. Following on from Before The Lemons (A History of Bath Football Club (RFU) 1865-1965) the book covers the 30 years to 1996, the year that the game went professional.
Drawing on previously confidential club archives, contemporary reports and the authors' own sources, as well as featuring new interviews with those involved and season-by-season statistics, this is a comprehensive, authoritative history. It will appeal not only to the legions of Bath fans all over the world but to anyone with an interest in rugby union's headlong rush towards professionalism.
After the Lemons runs to 292 illustrated pages and is great value at £14.99 (£18.50 P&P, UK).
