James Bentley

James Bentley is a freelance writer from Bury. The town, and in particular its erstwhile football club, informs much of James’ work that’s appeared in the likes of When Saturday Comes, the Manchester Evening News and the BBC. ‘The Forgotten Fifteen: How Bury triumphed in British football’s worst year’ is his first book that followed on from a series of interviews with former players that James wrote for the Gigg Lane matchday programme.
