Stramash: Tackling Scotland’s Towns and Teams

Part travel log, part history and part mistakenly spilling ketchup on the face of a small child, Stramash (‘a great way to rediscover Scotland’ – The Herald) takes an uplifting and insightful look at the country’s nether regions. Using the excuse of a match to visit places from Dumfries to Dingwall, Daniel Gray wittily surveys Scotland’s forgotten towns and teams in their present state. He trawls the archives and speaks to those in the know to bring to light details of often glorious, sometimes inglorious, but never dull pasts. 'Stramash' accomplishes the feats of visiting Dumfries without mentioning Robert Burns, being positive about Cumbernauld and linking Elgin City to Lenin.
