A Week One Summer - Floyd Steadman
The inspirational former Saracens Captain Floyd Steadman has recently launched his book ‘A Week One Summer’, an amazing insight in to his story.
The scrum-half made an incredible 469 appearances for the club in the 1980s, and went on to become a Headmaster, where he had a huge impact on one of rugby’s global superstars.
In a foreword in the book, Maro Itoje, who still calls him Mr Steadman, talks about his experiences with Floyd when he was a pupil at Salcombe School.
“I clearly remember the day when (Mr Steadman) approached me as I was playing football and said I should consider playing rugby. At that time, I had no knowledge or experience of the game. He sowed a seed in my mind.”
Itoje continued: “He was the only black headmaster I had ever witnessed. As a young black boy seeing Mr Steadman lead with such grace and authority, was a great example for me to follow.”
Read about Floyd’s incredible story in his new book which is available on Amazon and also in the Saracens Store at StoneX Stadium!
