From the publisher:
Scottish football is an enormous subject that has been deeply ingrained in the national culture for well over a century, making the 2008 publication of its first dedicated encyclopaedia well overdue, bursting with a mass of in-depth, entertaining and lovingly researched information. The second edition now takes this to new levels, containing not just an entry for every Scottish League club, but also senior non-league, junior and amateur clubs, stretching as far as defunct clubs who played in defunct leagues. The book features even more great players, managers and personalities.
International matches, cup finals and regional trophies warrant detailed entries, alongside such subjects as the game's origins, women's football and sectarianism. Which Scottish footballer won an Oscar? When was Scottish football affected by an eclipse of the sun? Which Italian international player was born in Scotland? You will find the answers here, along with hundreds of hours of sheer joy for the Scottish football enthusiast.
Now teaching part-time, David Potter has written more than 20 books on football and cricket, centred mostly around his greatest sporting love: Celtic FC. Now retired from local government, Phil Jones has since 1966 visited every Scottish League ground – usually accompanied by David Potter – and is now intently ticking off non-League homes.
