Stramash!: A Ramble Through Scotland's Towns and Teams
by Daniel Gray

Fatigued by bloated big-game football , historian Daniel Gray went in search of small town Scotland and its teams. Part travelogue, part history and part being accosted in a strange Alloa pub, Stramash! takes an uplifting and insightful look at the country's nether regions. Using the excuse of a match to visit places from Dumfries to Dingwall, Gray wittily surveys Scotland's forgotten towns in their present state, and trawls the archives to bring to light details of their often glorious, sometimes inglorious, but never dull pasts. Stramash! is ae fond look at Scotland as you've never seen it before, possibly because you didn't think you wanted to.

I thought this looked interesting?Written by the author of Homage to Caledonia it will make interesting reading when published in October.
If I remeber correctly the writer is a Middlesbrough fan!
