• Born to Score: The Autobiography

    Dwight Yorke has been one of the most successful and prolific goalscorers in the Premier League’s history over the past decade. He was known first at Aston Villa and then Manchester United for his permanent smile, smoothness and flair – and for making headlines both on and off the pitch. He was a key member of Manchester United’s treble-winning 1999 season and formed a deadly strike parterships with Andy Cole. His subsequent clubs have been Blackburn Rovers, Birmingham City, Sydney FC and Sunderland.

    Yorke came to be seen as the epitome of a young, successful, rich lifestyle, and he makes no apology for doing what a lot of young, single men would have done with sporting prowess, adulation and money. But it was his relationship with Katie Price (Jordan) among others which propelled him onto the gossip pages. He’s the father of their son Harvey, and he talks for the first time about the hurt of being branded a bad dad who didn’t care.

    Having never spoken out before, Dwight, nearing retirement, wants to tell his side, and from the heart. It’s the story of a boy who followed his football dreams from Tobago’s white beaches to England’s lush stadia and who, having been given a miraculous second chance to live aged two, risked losing everything he held dear. This is his fascinating story.

    There are some life stories you just cannot beat. Each time the names of such champions drop, one might as well perform a rite of acknowledgment…any. Their lives have graced hundreds of lives, and hundreds of lives continue to be redeemed through them. They have seen it all. Done it all. They love and they are loved. These individuals have given, and still have more in store.  According to the Canon of the Classics, these persons, even the gods envy.

    Rosina Aboagye Acheampong is one such mortal.  From the precocity of her childhood, her dance with life has been one amazing ball of faith … and chance, nay, destiny. These captivating pages reel out the adventures of a pathfinder, a mould breaker and a pacesetter. Yes, her name might be synonymous with Wesley Girls, but be it at the national or community level, to list what she has achieved is to embark on the impossible.
