Scottish Highland Football League Diary 2014/15

Postby SHFLdiary » Thu Aug 06, 2015 12:25 pm

Hello.

We noticed there wasn't much of a written history on the Highland League so decided to do something about it, and have produced a 252-page book on last season. It features short reports on all competitive games, monthly league tables, club statistics, competition summaries, and other bits and pieces that folk might find interesting. The cover comes in a glossy red colour in honour of last seasons champions Brora Rangers.

We felt that, despite the efforts everyone has gone to in creating an online community about the Highland League, there was nothing down in print that would last longer than a server.

It's on sale at lulu.com now and you can order a copy by clicking here.

Thanks for your time.

Kind regards,

I received my copy yesterday. The book is exactly what it says – a diary. It is a thorough record of the Highland League season and in an excellent format. It is not simply a record of results but is really a commentary on the season with each club given equal coverage and includes cup competitions and friendlies as well. It runs from the start of July 2014 to the end of May 2015. Each Saturday has two pages with a succinct but informative paragraph on each game played and the results listed at the end. The current league table is shown at the end of each month. There is a similar, if shorter, page for midweek dates to cover midweek games, cup draws, news, etc. This covers 200 of its 250 pages. The last 50 pages include a summary of the results of each of the competitions, a page summary on each club’s performance, a section on managerial comings-and-goings and features on the top goalscorer (Steven Mackay of Brora Rangers) and various records broken or almost broken by champions Brora Rangers.

If I had one point it would be to have included the names of the goal-scorers underneath each match result at the end of each Saturday summary. But that is a very, very minor point as the scorers are given elsewhere in the narrative on each game.

All in all an excellent summary of last season’s football in the Highlands and presented in a clear, easy-to-read, easy-to-find format.

Many thanks for your comments, they are very much appreciated. We've not had much feedback but what we've had has been positive. Thanks again!

We are considering a hardback or larger version to include the details of goalscorers at the end of each weekend/weekday summary and are looking to play about with the format next month, once we find some more content or think of anyway we can expand what's in there.

For anyone who hasn't bought a copy yet, our publishers are offering a 30% discount for this weekend.
