Author: Jason Goldsmith


Drawing inspiration from the history of the game in our country and some older inspirational Australian football books, Surfing for England - Our Lost Socceroos looks at the players who might have or could have played for Australia but who didn’t, for one reason or the other.


It starts with Craig Johnston and continues right to the current day with ‘righting the wrongs’ of those who did want to play for Australia but who had to fight to do so in the landmark FIFA ruling known as the ‘Cahill Rule’.


The book includes 8 pages of colour images highlighting some of our 'lost Socceroos'.


$1 from the sale of every edition of Surfing for England will be given to the DT38 Foundation by Fair Play Publishing.
