Author: Paul Dixon
Publisher: Peakpublish ISBN: 9781907219276, 246 pages Format: Paperback
Paul Dixon is an English football fanatic who, after 40 years of blissful ignorance, is suddenly struck with the realisation that he knows virtually nothing about Scottish football. Newly haunted by questions such as: Where is Queen of the South? and Who was Mirren and what did he do before he was a Saint? he determines to discover the answers to these mysteries first hand. From the Scottish Premier League to the East of Scotland League and stopping at all points in between, this football odyssey is opinionated, self-deprecating and always with an eye for the absurd. Why not come along for the ride?
Paul Dixon was born and raised in the north east of England. In terms of age he stands somewhere between Paul Gascoigne and Zinedine Zidane. In terms of footballing ability he does not. He has worked in both the public and private sectors and has had a bash at training, selling, supervising, promoting, administrating and general dogsbodying. He is now working as a freelance writer as he has failed at everything else.Fun and Games in Fife and Gretna is his first book.
