The latest edition of the ‘Scottish Football Almanac’ 2016/17 popped through my letterbox yesterday. The author Andy McGregor has to be congratulated for producing such a magnificent and detailed book, which will be the football bible for the season ahead. For every senior club, either 3 or 4 pages are dedicated to each club, with a squad list, historical information followed by full match details of every game played in season 2015/16. The only things that are missing are half time results and referees. I probably only mention these because I take a not of these for my own historical research. It also means that the season doesn’t have to be ‘revisited’ in the future. I am quite sure the reason for omitting these details was purely down to the lack of available space! Junior football receives good coverage down to the lowest level. There is a lot more in the book, far too much detail to list here, so you will just have to buy a copy to see for yourself! The book is well worth the price of £19.99. See Andy’s post above for ordering details.

Totally agree, this is the must-have book of the season and completely blows 'Rothmans' away. The amount of info included is exhaustive and must be on everyone's bookshelf.
