At last it was Monday, Sam s first training session. He is so excited he can hardly tie his laces. Sam and Danny get into a group with Rob and Foz and do some passing. After their warm-up Eddie puts them into teams to do some more practising before a quick game. Training Night is the fourth book in Set A of Sam s Football Stories.

This book presents a synthesis of the work on early football undertaken by the authors over the past two decades. It explores aspects of a figurational approach to sociology to examine the early development of football rules in the middle part of the nineteenth century. The book tests Dunning's status rivalry hypothesis to contest Harvey's view of football's development which stresses an influential sub-culture outside the public schools. Status Rivalry re-states the primacy of these latter institutions in the growth of football and without it the sport's story would remain skewed and unbalanced for future generations.
This study examines the problem of how culture is integrated through the medium of personality processes and the influence both of culture upon personality and of personality upon culture. The research methods are also detailed.
