Description

Record Breakers delves into the inner sanctum of a basement-league dressing room in the 90s, as its inhabitants attempt to overcome years of heartache to write themselves into the history books. Packed with characters and anecdotes, the players reveal how Notts County became the first side in post-war English football to win a title in March.
