THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

In memory of David Wangerin

wsc writers comp24 July ~ The annual writers' competition winners are printed in WSC 330, which is in shops today. In first place is Charlie Monaghan's account of how diving has infected all levels of the game, from the kids he coaches in the morning to his own matches in the afternoon right through to the highlights on Saturday night TV. In second place is Peter Brooksbank on why leaving a game early – even when all seems lost – is never a good idea, especially when you take to Twitter to talk about it. The award was set up with a legacy left by long-standing contributor David Wangerin, who died in 2012. It was only open to amateur writers and had to be based on any aspect of the 2013-14 season. Entries were judged by WSC editor Andy Lyons and co-founder Mike Ticher.
