The Remarkable History of Glenbuck
Robert Gillan and Adam Powel are writing a book on the remarkable history of Glenbuck, the small mining village in Ayrshire that produced 50 professional footballers including Bill Shankly. The book is due to be published later this year.
As part of the authors' research, they will be telling the story of each player and their careers at the clubs they played for. They are also researching a number of other broader areas including the history of the village, mining and the Ayrshire coalfields, football in Scotland, and the early history and spread of the professional game.
In addition they are looking for any stories, anecdotes and background ‘colour’ on the individuals and places concerned.
To that end they would like to speak to anyone who might be able to provide information regarding Glenbuck and the other sportspeople this place produced.
