Watch: Trailer for Ashley Hickson Lovence's
Your Show

By Ashley Hickson-Lovence, 19 November 2022

As the World Cup kicks off in Qatar, watch a new trailer for the football novel of 2022, Ashley Hickson-Lovence’s Your Show, a brilliant novelisation of the life of Uriah Rennie, the Premier League’s first and only Black referee.

At its core Your Show is a novel about what it means, and has meant, to be a Black British man.

For this reason, I’m delighted that four Black men feature in some way in this brand-new trailer and exclusive paperback cover reveal. Featuring acclaimed musician Murkage Dave, with poet Nego True providing the voiceover, reading words taken from my novel based on the life and career of Uriah Rennie, the first and only Black official to referee in the Premier League, this book is so much more than just for followers of the ‘beautiful game’. It’s a novel about ambition, desire, self-doubt and performance. So sit back and enjoy. The Uriah Rennie Show? Damn right it is.

Your Show is out now in hardback. The paperback edition will be published in the UK in March 2023.
