Please read Ian’s synopsis below.
“This is the story of a football club who led an unremarkable life for its first 111 years. They have gone through some of the most amazing successes on the pitch, as well as some of the most traumatic off it.
The club won promotion twice in the Eighties, won two cups in the Nineties. Relegation to the bottom division in 2000 was followed by a dramatic rise back to the top in 2007.
The club had seven homeless years after selling their ground.
The story details how all these changes developed, on and off the field.
It is also how two player strikes and a fan standing in Parliamentary by-election, led to change and the current successes.
It tells of a player almost fatally injured on the pitch, a 15 point deduction, the most famous fan in Scottish football and various odd stories along the way.
The story also tells of the impact on football of change, such as Satellite TV, Supporters Trusts and the Internet
The story will appeal to the supporters of Hamilton Academical Football Club, football supporters in general, particularly in Scotland.”
It is planned that a percentage of each book sale will go towards the Accies youth team or a similar group. This will be confirmed before the book is published later in the year.
