Tales from the Touchline

by John Gunn | 29 January 2021
PAPERBACK
Tales from the Touchline: Football Memories of the Man with the Flag is the story of a football fan and his experiences as a referee. A fan of Dundee United for many years, John Gunn's playing career was virtually non-existent, being limited to schoolboy level. He moved home from Dundee to Elgin in 1979 and began his refereeing journey, which took him from amateur levels to the Scottish Football Association's Senior List. Ten seasons at the very top of Scottish football saw John encounter the game's real characters, plenty of daft decisions and a whole raft of humorous incidents. After hanging up his whistle, John returned to the stands as a supporter of Dundee United and his contacts within the game provided him with even more stories to tell, many regarding his own team's fortunes - including how Eddie Thompson took over from legendary ex-manager Jim McLean. Tales from the Touchline has a mix of football's politics, characters, blunders and a good dose of humour thrown in for good measure.
