A message from our sponsors

In Search of Alan Gilzean, the biography of one of Dundee's greatest players, is out on September 20, but you can be a part of the official launch, at Dundee Contemporary Arts on Saturday, September 18, from 10am until 12pm.
The author, James Morgan, will introduce a film of some of Gillie's best bits. He will then be in conversation with Pat Liney to talk about the player he saw develop at Dens Park, the part Gillie played in the championship team of 1962 and the man behind the legend.
There will be a Q&A session and the opportunity to buy copies of the book, which James and Pat will be happy to sign. To claim a free ticket to this event, e-mail backpage@backpagepress.co.uk. with 'Alan Gilzean launch' as the subject. Please indicate the amount of tickets you would like. Maximum of four per person. Places are limited and tickets will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Good luck.

Edit: I have just been in touch with Ian Ure's wife (Ian is out of the country at present) and he has confirmed that he will also be in attendance.

    Thanks again for bringing the book to us

  2. Hi Russell,

    Great to hear from you and of course I remember that it is your pub! Not sure if you are mentioned by page 100 but you are definitely mentioned!

    We are planning a few events down south - hopefully we might be able to arrange something with you.

    Best regards

    James

  3. Hi James,
    Just completed reading your book on Gillie, compelling read, congratulations. Two things are of great interest to me, one I was the person who invented the "Born is the King of White Hart Lane" song on a train on my way home from Nottm. Forest on Boxing Day in 1964, Gillie had scored the winner. Soon everyone on the train was singing the song.Secondly I have lived in Weston super Mare for the last 23 years and although I had heard that Gillie lived here I didn't really believe it. It would be great to bump into a Tottenham legend.
    Regards
    Martin Lee

  7. Credit control is important in a business especially for small businesses. This means that every small business should ensure that it collects its outstanding invoices. Some small businesses let their uncollected invoices accumulate which ultimately affects their cash flow and also the performance of the general business. water damage repair

  8. There are few business credit building companies out there, however, those that are out there are taking advantage of the lack of knowledge from the general public regarding business credit and how to get a business loan. DON'T LET THEM RIP YOU OFF! مصور مشاريع
