Description


Reader, you are in for a treat. Or possibly a shock. Richard 'Siggy' Young has just written an astonishing cricket book about football. Or perhaps it's a stunning football book about cricket. There was much more to the birth and subsequent explosive rise of football in Scotland than mere football. There was cricket. Scottish cricket, Big Scottish cricket. This is serious revisionist history. Cherished myths are debunked. ...a must-read for all with even a passing interest in the origins of Scottish 'fitba' and the social dynamics of nineteenth century industrial Scotland. One thing's for sure. Make no mistake. It's an utter gem.
