The waiting goes on.

The wait for the new season drags but the excitement bubbles away with new ferocity with the publishing of Non-League and FA Cup/Trophy and Vase fixtures. Plans can be made, lists reviewed and dreams could be fulfilled.

In the meantime I visited Wigtown, it is billed as ‘Scotland’s National Book Town’ but a search of the many second hand bookshops was fruitless in finding a good football book. My final stop was the Community Shop and there on a table as I walked in was a book of poetry about Scottish football for £3. The book was ‘Mind The Time’ – An Anthology of Poetry to Support Football Memories Scotland. It was produced with Nutmeg -The Scottish Football Periodical in 2017.20190715_174707The first Football Memories group met in Stenhousemuir in 2004 to engage with those suffering memory loss through discussing their memories regarding football. The projects success has not only been huge in Scotland but has raced over the southern border and become established in England too.

The poetry looks good for a future read but I thought I would share one poem now on the close season.


‘nutmeg’ also looks a real interesting source of football info for the future.
