PAUL FERRIS was born in Lisburn, Northern Ireland and, aged 16, became the youngest ever debutant with Newcastle United in 1981.

After just 13 matches, however, a medial ligament injury meant a career re-think. He trained in physiotherapy and in 1993 returned to Newcastle United as physio under Kevin Keegan’s management.

Meanwhile, he was studying part-time for a masters degree in the history of ideas, and in 2006 took the Bar Vocational Course to qualify as a barrister. Three years later, Alan Shearer brought him back to United as part of his management team.

Paul’s extraordinary autobiography has been snapped up by Hodder & Stoughton and will be published in Spring 2018
