A Short History of LIVINGSTON UNITED                    £1.50 (50p postage)
By John Weir, this 32 page booklet tells the history of the club, formed in 1970, as well
as details of their juvenile period prior to this. In addition, there are some details of the
earlier clubs in the town as well as United’s final league positions and their Junior Cup
record. Published 2007.

Graduating with Honours - A Short History of Spartans FC £1 (50p postage)
By Archie MacGregor Jnr, this 16 page booklet is a short history of the east of Scotland
league club who have shot to prominence in recent years. Published 2007,
Miscellany series
This is a new series of small publications (envisaged to range from 16 to 40 pages) on
various aspects of mainly junior football. A little different from the earlier “HISTORIES”
series, these will be on a varied range of subjects, many collated from my own records
built up over the years.

The first two publications in this new series were published in February 2006 :
The first looks at the last ten years of the Lanarkshire Junior FA, through excerpts from
the minute books of the Association. This booklet has 20 pages.
The second of these includes excerpts from the minute books of the Lanarkshire
League, as well as the winners and runners up from the league and its cups throughout
around 80 years of competition. This also runs to 20 pages.
The Lanarkshire League and Association went through a number of changes during this
period, with many of the member clubs going out of the game, and these booklets give a
great insight to the major problems faced as well as some of the more unusual.
The third, published in June 2006 is Scottish Junior Football Cup & League
Competitions – a Historical Guide. This has 28 pages, and includes snippets of
historical information on many competitions from the past, such as when they were
founded, main points of interest, highlighted seasons, why they were founded etc.
These cost £1.50 each plus 50p postage each.
The fourth, published in October 2007 is Scottish Sport 1894. This is extracts from
the first six months of the 1894 volume of Scottish Sport, the twice weekly Scottish
sporting newspaper of the late Victorian area. It covered the latest happenings, news
and views from around Scottish football, in a period when junior and senior clubs were
just starting to participate in a set-up we would now recognise, with leagues starting and
the major cups becoming established. The idea of producing this is to highlight the
good reference to the daily goings-on of football in Scotland in the late 19th century that
this, and similar publications of the era can provide to football researchers, as well as
give the general reader a different viewpoint on Scottish football Copies of this 44
page booklet are available from me at £3 (includes UK postage).
The fifth in the series is A History of Junior Football in Dumfries-shire.
Despite there being no league there since the early 1950s (and even this being a short
post-war burst of enthusiasm following a near 20 year break after the late 1920s), the
area has quite a junior history, going back to the 1890s. This booklet includes final
tables, cup winners, many cup results (including all Dumfries-shire matches in the
Scottish Junior Cup) as well as a club directory of every club to have participated over
the years. This opens up a whole new part of the country to published junior football
history. Published in October 2008, this has 56 pages and costs £3 plus 65p postage.

Should you wish to purchase all five editions of Miscellany, please send £10.50
(includes £1 towards postage costs)
