"Tom Birkin, a veteran of the Great War and a broken marriage, arrives in the remote Yorkshire village of Oxgodby to restore a recently discovered medieval mural in the local church. Living in the bell tower, surrounded by the resplendent countryside of high summers, and laboring each day to uncover an anonymous painter's extraordinary depiction of the apocalypse, Birkin finds that he himself has been restored to a new, and hopeful, attachment to life."--Page 4 of cover

"But is this story believable? Ah, it all depends upon whether you want it to believe it." (J.L. Carr). Very strange and extremely funny, this uncategorizable novel is a surreal fantasy set, vaguely, in the early 1970s, during one highly memorable football season. Steeple Sinderby Wanderers, in their new all-buttercup-yellow stripe, start it by ravaging the Fenland League and end it with a phenomenal nail-biter against Glasgow Rangers. Told through unreliable recollection, florid local newspaper coverage and bizarre committee minutes, How Steeple Sinderby Wanderers Won the F.A. Cup is somehow both entertaining and very moving. There will never be players again like Alex Slingsby, Sid 'the Shooting Star' Swift and the immortal milkman-turned-goalkeeper Monkey Tonks

Wie Steeple Sinderby United den Pokal holte Roman by J. L Carr( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in German and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein winziges Dorf in den Hochmooren von Yorkshire: Alex Slingsby ist Exfußballprofi, Grundschullehrer in Sinderby - und ein Mann mit Ambitionen. Unterstützt vom Schuldirektor, einem Exilungarn mit Doktor in Philosophie, nimmt er sich des amateurhaften örtlichen Fußballteams an. Die beiden bilden ein unkonventionelles Trainergespann. So wird etwa eine der zentralen Positionen im Team vergeben, frei nach dem Motto: 'Ein Torwart muss kein guter Fußballer sein, er muss nur Raumgefühl besitzen'. Zu diesem Torhüter (der überdies noch leidenschaftlich gerne aufräumt) gesellen sich ein leicht depressiver Stürmerstar und der Pfarrer, dessen Schwester eine überzeugte Zeugin Jehovas ist. Und tatsächlich formiert sich aus einem Haufen Außenseiter nach und nach eine Mannschaft. Wie durch ein Wunder schaffen es die einfachen Männer aus Sinderby bis ins Finale des F. A. Cups im Wembleystadion. Aber dieser große Moment ist leider viel zu schnell vorbei ... J. L. Carrs Roman ist viel mehr als ein Buch über Fußball - es ist eine Geschichte vom Erfolg des Underdogs, eine Geschichte voller unvergesslicher Charaktere und mit viel Witz, die doch von einer leisen Melancholie durchwirkt ist
