A CHESTER fan's tales 20 years of groundhopping have come together to provide a guide to soccer stadia both big and small.
The 41-year-old Chester City supporter Peter Tomlins has trekked the length and breadth of Great Britain.
He got the stadium-spotting bug while travelling to away games with "The Blues" during the early 1980s.
And as the fortunes of his own team declined, the Health Agency worker developed true wanderlust embarking on a series of weekend awaydays.
Peter, a single man who lives in the Handbridge area of Chester, has now published a book of anecdotes which also serves as an up-front guide to Britain's football grounds.
Tours Glorious Tours, which retails at £2, has already raised almost £400 for Chester's Hospice of the Good Shepherd.
"It was an idea which has been brewing for some time," said Peter, whose winner in the best pre-match pint category is Nationwide Conference Club Stevenage Borough.
"The book revolves around conversations with people I have met and funny events that happened and I have tried to write it all through the eyes of a football supporter."
He deems Sunderland's Stadium of Light to be the most impressive ground in Great Britain, praising its facilities which he declares "good value for money", while the wittiest chants and best atmosphere can be found at the Anfield home of Liverpool FC.
The unenviable title of worst ground is reserved for the Underhill home of Nationwide Conference contenders Barnet, which according to Peter, is "almost falling down".
