Product Description

Review

"It's a thing of beauty and has clearly been well researched and is therefore the perfect antidote to the inaccuracies which multiply on the internet at an alarming rate." --David Tanner, Sky Sports

"An an exceptional book covering a multitude of topics ranging from, amongst many others abandoned games, senior non-league football, the junior and amateur scene and defunct clubs and leagues. This book hits the spot, and is the perfect publication for those wishing to delve more deeply into the wealth Scotland's footballing history." --Scottish Football Historical Archive

About the Author

David Potter was born in Forfar in 1948 and grew up with a passion for football, a game in which he has done everything other than play! He has refereed, coached, commentated on, written about and watched avidly both on TV and in the flesh, having seen his first game in 1954. He graduated from St Andrews University in 1970 and taught Classics and Spanish at Glenrothes High School from 1971 until 2003. He now teaches part-time at Osborne House School in Dysart. He lives in Kirkcaldy and is married with three children, three grandchildren and a dog. Other than football, his passions are cricket and drama. He has written several books on Scottish football. Phil Jones is a retired local government manager who has lived in north-east Fife since 1974. Originally from Bradford in Yorkshire, he too is a graduate of St Andrews University and saw his first Scottish football match in 1966 when he was a student. He went on to visit all the Scottish League grounds, usually accompanied by David Potter, and since retiring from Fife Council in 2003 has extended his football travels to non-league grounds throughout Scotland. In the course of carrying out research for this book he has visited places as far apart as Wick and Wigtown. He is married with three adult children, and his other interests include researching family history and taking his dog for long walks.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Susan Simpson on 24 Sept. 2008
Format: Hardcover
This is a fine book, well worth the price. It is accurate and covers most aspects of the game with every team which has ever played League football having an entry. There are also comprehensive lists of Scottish Cup finals and International matches. One of the main attractions of the book however is the photography with some lovely images, and a page or two with covers of programmes. Anyone looking for a Christmas present for their football loving family should look no further.

Format: Hardcover
This book is comprehensive, detailed and packed with amazing interesting facts which makes it a must for anyone taking part in the pub football quiz.

But it is not just a reference book. You will find when you are looking for one thing you quickly become absorbed with another and go off at a tangent to learn something completely new.

The thorough coverage of Junior football is unusual in such a book and the illustrations and photographs tell so many stories themselves.

As a football fan for fifty years or more, I recall some of the games and events of more recent times but there are always more details to savour.

The history of the game is also fully covered and there is so much history to Scottish football.

This book is a "must" for any true football fan.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dr. J. McCue on 26 Sept. 2008
Format: Hardcover
David and Phil's book has opened a window on Scottish football for me that has been closed for too long. I can now easily find out where all the Scottish teams play, how the've fared, in recent times and much further back, and find any amount of detail on Scottish players, past and present. There are also what I think are unusual items such as heights, weights and families. My roots are in Ireland, my home is in England, but my heart is in Scotland, and I can thoroughly recommend this well-written book; it's a joy to browse.
