Jeremy Goss, who scored that famous volley against Bayern Munich in 1993, will unveil the book in Norwich on Saturday, August 16 at Jarrold department store.

The former footballer has been working on the autobiography with ghost writer Edward Couzens-Lake for the last three year.

Jeremy Goss - The Autobiography will be released at 11am on August 16 ahead of Norwich City’s first home match of the Championship season.

The book will be published by Amberley Publishing, which specialises in local and specialist history, will tell the story of Goss’ playing career and charity work with the Norfolk and Norwich Association for The Blind.

The former Welsh international footballer played in European Championship and World Cup qualifying matches and between 1982 and 2000, played in just under 250 first class games in British professional football, including over 200 for Norwich City.

Some of the highlights of his career at Norwich included being part of the team that had a famous UEFA Cup run in the 1993/94 season. He scored three goals in the competition that season, including one at the world famous Olympic Stadium in Munich. However, long before those wonderful European nights, Goss experienced success as a member of the Norwich City Youth team that won the prestigious FA Youth Cup in 1983, beating Everton in the final.

He made nine appearances for Wales.

Goss is now business development director for the Soccer Hub.

  • Goss scored a goal in a legendary Norwich win at Munich and that is why he is a (Norwich) legend. Also, that picture reminds me that our best ever team wore our worst ever kit.

  • 'Legend' is probably the most overused word in football. Very, very, few players deserve that accolade, in fact, with Norwich City's history, possibly only the likes of Terry Alcock, Terry Bly, Barry Butler, Dave Stringer and one or two other good players whose names have stood the test of time. Overusing the word just waters down the achievements of the true greats.

  • Archant really are taking things to far by describing Goss as a legend. He's a lovely man but for most of his time at Carrow Road he was only a squad player who was fortunate to score the great goal in Munich. He only averaged ten games a season and surely cannot be called a legend. And I must agree with others - you are either a legend or not.

  • Perhaps someone at Archant can explain how one becomes a "former" legend? Does one have to blot ones copybook in some way. Poor old Gossie - he used to be a legend but he isn't anymore. When did he stop being a legend?

  • Never heard of him, football is on its way out with fewer and fewer people bothering to take an interest in it, it might sell a couple of copies before its remaindered
