About the Book

Karl Phillips is just one of the lads – roofer by day, pilsner drinker by night. But as Bootlegger, he’s scored hundreds of thousands of hits on YouTube with his hilarious matchday vlogs and keeps a huge number of followers on social media hooked with his humorous musings on life, work, the Flamethrower and his beloved Wrexham AFC. He even has a beer named after him – Wrexham Lager’s iconic Bootlegger 1974 Pilsner, which has made its way onto the shelves of major supermarkets.

From tough beginnings with teenage parents to a string of jobs in local factories, whether smearing butter on his headmaster’s office window or getting a round of golf in during his shift as a street-cleaner, duckin’ around shooting videos in football grounds and pubs across the UK or slightly overdoing it in holiday spots around the world, or in the throes of any of the other hilariously random antics described here, the Captain doesn’t take himself too seriously and is mellowing with age, like a fine pilsner!
