Product description

It often seems as if football is only about the big clubs - Celtic, Rangers, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal etc. In Scotland, however, a little team from just outside Edinburgh has come from nowhere to confound all expectations. In just six years since their foundation, Livingston FC have battled their way to the position of competing for a place in Europe, taking on teams which have been around for over 100 years and swatting them aside on their rise to glory. It shows that a small club, backed by two men's vision and determination, can scale great heights in a day and age where it is said to be impossible for small clubs to do so. It has been a hard dream to follow for the men who achieved this - Bill Hunter and Dominic Keane - but it is a road destined to end in glory. This title covers every moment of the club's existence, recreating the dramas on the park and the tensions and tragedy off it, with interviews from the people who have made the team what it is. It also has an appendix covering every game the team has played, including results and team line-ups.
