Forfar Athletic On This Day

Out of Stock. Usually despatches within 2 weeks.


Forfar Athletic have had some dreadful times, but they have had their share of success as well. Here the author has found something memorable that has happened on every single day in the year - a chronicle by a man who first watched the Loons in 1954 and whose father and grandfather watched them way before. This is a football book, but it is more than that - it is a glimpse of the social history of the town, the area and the nation. Outstanding players like Davie McLean, Alec Troup and Craig Brewster are mentioned, the red letter days when Forfar took on Rangers, Celtic and Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup, and the day when they astonished the world by beating Hearts at Tynecastle. But credit is given to the less spectacular of days as well, like defeats at Cowdenbeath, Stenhousemuir and Dumbarton in the pouring rain. Such days are also part of supporting a small team like Forfar.
