In 2015 Shaun Smith set upon his first and many trips from Tyneside to Scotland, visiting the clubs which have won the prestigious Scottish Junior Cup during his lifetime, a trophy which has been contested for since 1887 and is affectionately known as “The Holy Grail of Scottish football”
The author reviews the history of each club, exploring the old pit villages, satellite towns and industrial areas from where they are based.
The book look at his matchday ritual, OCD collecting, his musical passion and is semi-autobiographical, with links to his past as a long suffering Newcastle United fan.
So follow Shaun’s progress of visiting 22 grounds in 22 months as he heads north of the border from the Toon to the Joons on the trail of the Scottish Holy Grail.

The book can be purchased on Amazon for £10.

YOUTH REPORTS

2001s – Sunday 5 February 2017

Crosshouse 1 Talbot 0

It was hard luck today for the lads with a 1- 0 defeat, this was never going to be an easy game anyway for two teams who were both out for a win, good football played with a few injuries sustained and with plenty of goal opportunities but unfortunately it was just one of those days where the ball went everywhere but in the net. Disappointed faces all round this week but this only helps us to keep focused and be stronger and better for our next game keep up the hard work.
