PORTISHEAD’S favourite football personality has released his long-awaited autobiography.
Bobby Gould, who has lived in the town for almost 40 years, made his football debut in 1963 for his home town Coventry.
He went on to play for a string of clubs including Bristol City and Bristol Rovers and later managed clubs including Bristol Rovers and Wimbledon before taking up the post as manager of Wales.
When Wimbledon won the FA Cup in 1988, football fans in Portishead were delighted when Bob brought the trophy back to the town.

To mark the launch of his book, 24 Carat Gould, the 64-year-old popped into Carey’s DIY in Portishead High Street to have his first international shirt framed, before presenting it to his former High School in Coventry.
Carey’s boss Jon Jonston said: “Bob is a regular here and we love framing his memorabilia. The shirt looks great and we think it’s a nice touch for him to be giving his old school such a personal item.”
