A terrific listen

One of my favourite podcasts; back after a two-year hiatus. Insightful, frank and often funny interviews about life in the SPFL’s lower tiers. Craig’s research is also exceptional.

too old for this lark ,

Scottish Football at its best

Love this Podcast. It’s great to hear good honest pro’s talking about their lives through the lower leagues in Scotland. No flannel, no standard football interviewers inane bollox, just really really refreshing. Cheers Craig
