Comet journalist and Arsenal fan Layth Yousif is marking the success of his second book by holding a signing in Hitchin on Saturday.

His Miracle of Copenhagen book tells the story of the club’s most recent European trophy win in 1993/94 – when the Gunners unfancied team beat some of the best sides across the continent to lift the Cup Winners Cup.

The book features interviews with some of the main protagonists during that season, original insights from well-respected Fleet Street sportswriters including Patrick Barclay and Amy Lawrence – as well as many passionate fans who, along with Layth were present at all the games home and away that memorable year.

Layth has been a season ticket holder for 31 years as well as reporting on the team home and away from the press box.

He held a successful book launch in London, attended by a Sky Sports broadcaster as well as Fleet Street journalists and Arsenal fans.

”I can’t wait to meet as many North Herts Gooners as possible at Hitchin Waterstones in Market Place from 10am to 2pm.”
