dwyerPhil made an amazing total of 573 appearances for the Bluebirds in all competitions between 1972 and 1985 – a record that is unlikely ever to be broken. 

Written in conjunction with local author James Leighton, ‘Mr Cardiff City’ tells the remarkable story of Phil’s football career including his early days as an apprentice under Jimmy Scoular, the promotions and relegations he experienced with the club during the Seventies and Eighties, and his sad departure in March 1985 following his release by Alan Durban. 

Packed with amusing anecdotes and interesting stories, the book also provides details of Phil’s international career with Wales, which included a winning debut in Iran and scoring a goal against England at Ninian Park. 

‘Mr Cardiff City’ retails at £16.99 and the publishers are kindly donating £5 from every copy sold at the Supporters’ Trust office to the Fred Keenor Statue Appeal. The book will make an ideal Christmas present for any Bluebirds fan, so don’t miss your chance to get a signed copy. 

The Supporters’ Trust office is situated at the Canton Stand end of the Cardiff City Stadium just a few yards to the right of the turnstiles at Gate 5. Phil Dwyer will be signing copies of his book and any other items fans want to bring along from 2:00pm until 2:45pm.
