'The Casual Hopper' (Alan Oliver) is one of the big characters in the Non-League groundhopping world. Having been to every round of the FA Cup in 2013-14 and the FA Trophy 2014-15, in 2015-16 he aimed to do every round of FA Vase and the FA Sunday Cup. He has raised over £17,000 for 'The Christie' Hospital in Manchester throughout this journey and has taken his unique, Mancunian charm to the four corners of Britain. There is a lot more to 'The Unbreakable Vase' than simply a footballing journey. It is about the footballing bond Alan has made with fellow football fanatics, Calvin Wade and Gordon Johnson, giving an insight into their lives over a twelve month period when unexpectedly they faced some terrible lows as well as footballing highs. 'The Unbreakable Vase' has the FA Vase as its central focus but it is also about characters they meet on the pitch and at the side of it. There are even a few chance meetings with some of the biggest names in English and even world football along the way. Furthermore, it tells the story of the blossoming football careers of younger members of their families as they battle for football scholarships. 'The Unbreakable Vase' is very different to the previous two parts of this footballing trilogy but hopefully just as interesting for any football fan. * 'The Unbreakable Vase' is dedicated to the memory of Steve Garcia and 50p from every full-priced sale (25p on promotional sales) will be passed to his widow, Angela Garcia, to donate to the British Heart Foundation.
