FORMER Town skipper Andy Morrison will release his autobiography in October.

‘The Good, the Mad and the Ugly: The Andy Morrison Story’, promises to be an interesting read.

It weighs in at 224 pages, will be priced at £16.99 hardback and is being produced by Ayr-based Fort Publishing.

They describe Morrison, below, as “football’s most troubled character” in their promotional material for the book.

Morrison, now 40, was born in Inverness but raised in Plymouth and graduated from Argyle’s youth ranks to play in the first team.

The uncompromising centre-back was transferred to Blackburn, then bossed by Kenny Dalglish, in August 1993 before Lancastrian rivals Blackpool broke their transfer record by spending £245,000 to take him to Bloomfield Road in December 1994.

Town paid £500,000 for him during the 1996 close-season, but injuries restricted him to 44 appearances before an £80,000 move to Manchester City in November 1998.

Having helped City win back-to-back promotions to the Premier League– supporters voted him the club’s third-best captain behind Tony Book and Tony Paul – Morrison was forced to retire at 31.

He has been assistant manager to Andy Preece, his former Blackpool teammate, at both Worcester City and Northwich Victoria.
