Phil Vasili writes about football with a passion. He wrote his first book-length manuscript in his late teens. ‘A load of pretentious tosh’ it is browning at the edges in a cupboard in his study! However, it was, he admits, good practice. Unable to separate his obsessions he writes mainly about footballers, having had published two biographies and a social history.
He has also written a novel ‘Felt and Batten’ and drama scripts. His play, Tull, directed by David Thacker, had a successful three week run at Bolton’s Octagon Theatre in 2013. Phil was executive producer of ‘Antonio’s Breakfast’ which won the 2006 short film (drama) BAFTA.
