The Waterstone’s book signing also starts at noon. Dwyer’s autobiography has the title ‘Mr Cardiff City’ and Bluebirds’ historian Richard Shepherd says: “There could be no more appropriate title for one of the most popular players in our history.”

Grangetown-born Dwyer could play in almost any position.

He was a defender who could also operate in midfield or attack – and in one match even took over in goal.

He made a club record 471 League appearances for Cardiff City plus another 102 appearances in various cup competitions – a total of 573 first-team appearances.

The autobiography ‘Mr. Cardiff City’ is published by Fort Publishing Ltd (£16.99) and is written in collaboration with local author and Cardiff City fan James Leighton, who wrote the biography of Fred Keenor and the autobiography of Christian Roberts.
