Top Man
The Geoff Twentyman Story
By Geoff Twentyman with Neil Palmer


Key features
A unique book, documenting Geoff’s dual career as a
footballer and journalist
• A first-hand look behind the scenes at the reality of life as a
lower-league player who went on to forge a career in local
radio, gaining respect from both sides of a divided city
• A story that will appeal to fans of both Bristol clubs, but
also fans of his hugely successful radio shows
• Geoff has written his book with his friend and author Neil
Palmer, who has written books on both City and Rovers
• Great photos from both Geoff’s playing and radio career
and many from his personal collection 

Top Man is the fascinating autobiography of popular former footballer and radio journalist Geoff Twentyman. Brought up in the footballing heartlands on Merseyside, Geoff junior is the son of former Liverpool player and later legendary scout Geoff senior. Released from his beloved Reds as a teenager, Geoff plied his trade in non-league football before a chance to turn professional came at Preston North End and later Bristol Rovers, as captain during one of their most successful periods. When Geoff hung up his boots, he picked up the microphone. He became a staple on the sports desk at BBC Radio Bristol, fronting the station’s sports shows. With a reputation for a no-nonsense
approach with players and managers of both Bristol clubs, he went on to win the respect of the red half of the city, and continued to entertain with his brilliant sports coverage over the next three decades.Top Man is Geoff Twentyman’s life story, a quite remarkable journey—from pitch to gantry—and a testimony to a man who was able to unite blue and red in Bristol through their love of sport.
