Duncan Hamilton returns to William Hill Sports Book of the Year shortlist

27th October 2010

Duncan Hamilton could be in line to win the William Hill Sports Book of the Year Award for a third time after being shortlisted for the prize once more.

Hamilton, who won the award in 2007 with Provided You Don't Kiss Me and in 2009 with Harold Larwood: The Biography, has been shortlisted for the GBP 22,000 prize again with A Last English Summer.

Open: An Autobiography by Andre Agassi, Catrine Clay's Trautmann's Journey: From Hitler Youth to FA Cup Legend and Blood Knots by Luke Jennings are among the other titles competing for the award.

The shortlist is completed by Brian Moore's Beware of the Dog: Rugby's Hard Man Reveals All and Bounce: How Champions Are Made by Matthew Syed.

William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe said the 2010 shortlist is one of the strongest compiled in the history of the prize.

'If Duncan Hamilton wins again he will become the Red Rum of sports writers, completing a unique hat-trick in this toughest of literary races,' he added.

Other past winners of the prize include Marcus Trescothick's Coming Back To Me and Unforgivable Blackness by Geoffrey C. Ward.
