As modern football legends, the Class of 92 need no introduction. Class of 92: Out of Their League, however, opens a dramatic new chapter in the story of former Manchester United greats Gary and Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt as they all take on new roles in their lives: as owners of semiprofessional club Salford City FC.
An enthralling, in-depth account of Salford's first two years under new ownership, Class of 92: Out of Their League combines firsthand accounts from Gary, Phil, Paul, Ryan and Nicky as they try to turn round the club's fortunes along with a wider story of tremendous athletic and human drama.
Featuring colourful characters like managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley, star players, club chairman Karen Baird, lifelong fans and more, this is a story told with real authenticity and grit.
Accompanying the second series of the hugely popular BBC series, Class of 92: Out of Their League is both a testament to the best of modern football and a brilliant reminder, in an era when fans are threatening walkouts over rising ticket prices, of what football is really all about.

"A great story with some interesting background"
Plenty of good stuff, but the way it is put together makes a bit confusing, switching from one persons view to the next. Interesting to see the next chapter in their story. Can't wait. Salford is definitely turning out to be my 2nd club after Manchester United.
"Well worth it"
Normally not a fan of other people "pretending" to be the author - but it works well here.
Takes you inside the story, to the point where you can smell the winter green and hear the studs on the concrete.
Really enjoyed it.
I think it makes non-league football a little more fashionable...............that can't be a bad thing.
great insight to what the class of 92 lads are trying to achieve and what they went through as trainees at United and how today's young footballers are given everything from an early age
Behind the scenes experience which follows the rags to riches story of Salford city fc
You hear the views of the owners and everyone involved in the club
Lots of history and personal stories which were not in the TV series
A must for any football fan and I feel many will respect the class of 92 players and everyone at Salford city even down to the kitchen staff who are all committed to getting the club into the football league
