In the tough, adrenaline-fueled world of Australian Football, Dustin Fletcher is a legend. In 2014, the 39-year-old Essendon Bomber runs out for his 22nd season not only as the oldest man in the game, but also one of the best-loved by sports fans, commentators, coaches and fellow players alike.
Fletch tells Fletcher's incredible true story in his own words: from his beginnings growing up as the son of Essendon legend Ken Fletcher to his prodigal son debut aged just 17, and his meteoric rise with premiership-winning dream team "The Baby Bombers" led by iconic coach Kevin Sheedy and star teammate James Hird.
Fletcher's up-close-and-personal insights into the latter during the biggest scandal to ever rock the game, the ASADA drugs-in-sport investigation that rocked Essendon in 2013, make for riveting reading and offer, for the first time, an insider's view of this ongoing saga. It's just one of many revelations in this remarkable autobiography which takes us behind the scenes of a famous footballing life with all its on-field action, off-field controversies and personal dramas.
Honest, explosive, poignant and entertaining, Fletch reads as 'Fletch' kicks - straight, strong, true.
