Michael White has written his fifth volume of our club history – with every penny raised going to Motor Neuron Disease Scotland (MNDS) the charity that has helped our own David Hagen and many, many others affected by a terrible disease.
Plans for a hard copy have been set back by the current situation. A limited print run will be produced when things are back to normal, but for now Bairns fans can download a PDF for free (which should be readable on any device) and donate whatever they can afford to Michael’s fundraising page for MNDS.
This latest book brings the club’s story right up to date, including everything from 2007-2019 – that’s Premier League success, relegation, playoff drama, cup finals and all of your favourite players from recent years.
Michael White said: “Talk about a roller-coaster ride? This fifth volume of our club’s history takes us on a journey that covers all the emotions that you experience as a Bairns supporter. The highs of Scottish Cup Finals, play-off nail-biters, and then the despair of decline and ultimate relegation to the third tier of Scottish Football. There are some great characters and some unforgettable performances in these pages, and some games we would rather forget. There is also a tribute to those who are no longer with us, and their contributions to the story of the club should not be forgotten.
“All proceeds go to a very worthwhile cause – MND Scotland – and I promised David Hagen that I would do this. The current coronavirus crisis threw the initial publishing plans into disarray, but I hope you will enjoy this version and we will publish a limited edition print run when things get back to normal. Please give whatever you can afford to MND Scotland to support their excellent work through the Just Giving page.”
It’s a great reminder of our recent history and a great cause to raise money for. You can download the book for free below and click on the donate link to be taken to Michael’s fundraising page, where anything you can spare will go straight to MNDS.
