Former national footballer and coach Everard "Gally" Cummings, right, presents his book to Mayor of Pt Fortin Saleema Mc Cree Thomas. -

EVERALD “Gally” Cummings presented the Mayor of Point Fortin Saleema Mc Cree Thomas with a copy of his just released autobiography.

Thomas is the niece of Tony Douglas, a former team-mate of Cummings. Cummings and Thomas played together on the national football team and for the Cleveland Force professional football team in the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) in the late 1970s. Cummings, who was the coach of the Strike Squad, began his official book tour at the Victor Chin Kit Park, Point Fortin.

Cummings said, “Point Fortin is the birthplace of other legendary footballers such as Steve David, Warren Archibald, Wilfred Cave, Leroy De Leon and the Douglas brothers. I’m a part of their story and they are a part of mine. Those connections are well documented in my autobiography which is not only my story but the story of some of the most legendary moments of T&T’s football.”

Cummings added, “Every football player, football administrator and football fan should read this book because it will forever change the way you see the game. And you have to read the book to know why.”

Gally Cummings: The Autobiography is available at Paper Based Bookstore, Normandie Hotel, St Ann’s; Metropolitan Bookstore, Capital Plaza, Frederick Street, Port of Spain; Nigel R Khan Bookstores nationwide and Charran’s Bookstore, Main Road, Chaguanas.
