Kibworth-based publishers book is named as one of the eight best sports books of the year at the British Sports Book Awards 2011

Kibworth-based publisher, Troubador Publishing Ltd, is celebrating after one of their books was named as one of the eight best sports books of the year at the British Sports Book Awards 2011.

James Lambie’s ‘The Story of Your Life’, published through Troubador’s imprint Matador, won the ‘Best Racing Book’ category at a star-studded ceremony at The Savoy Hotel, London on May 9th.

‘We are thrilled for James,’ said Matador’s Managing Director Jeremy Thompson talking about the award. ‘His carefully researched book has been well received since publication and this is the icing on the cake for him.’

James Lambie’s book has been well-reviewed by the trade, media and readers alike with glowing reviews from press critics. Described variously as ‘one of the most remarkable racing books I’ve ever read’ (The Racing Post) and ‘an unmissable read’ (Sir Mark Prescott), the book is an entertaining account of The Life from a long-time insider. James Lambie worked for the newspaper for many years, the last twelve as northern correspondent, and covered many major events in the sporting world.

Troubador Publishing are a Leicester-based publishing firm who were established in the late 1980s. Their head office is now situated in Kibworth Beauchamp, from where they offer a range of publishing services.
