MIND THE TIME NIGHT OF FOOTBALL CHAT AND VERSE

in aid of Football Memories and Saints in the Community

MIND THE TIME EVENING OF FOOTBALL CHAT AND VERSE

At McDiarmid Park on Sunday 26th November from 7pm – 9pm. In aid of Football Memories Scotland and supported by Saints in the Community. Hosted by Saints Poet in Residence Jim McIntosh, the evening will include poetry readings and football reminiscing with a panel consisting of Atholl Henderson, Saints legend Roddy Grant and the one and only Henry Hall. All three of Scotland's Football Club Poet's in Residence will attend: Stephen Watt of Dumbarton FC, Thomas Clark of Selkirk FC and Jim. We will also have Karyn Buckland, Graham Fulton and Andy Jackson - all published, veteran performance poets and all contributors to Mind the Time. Mind the Time is an anthology of poetry published to support the work of Football Memories Scotland. It was edited by Jim McIntosh and contains 100 football related poems by 50 contemporary poets using the core theme of the good old days, a theme which is entirely subjective and could be last year or fifty years ago. It also contains various articles about the Football Memories project. The book was launched at Hampden Park in June. Admission to the event will cost £5 with proceeds going to the Community Trust and copies of Mind the Time will be available to purchase – just in time for Christmas! The day will kick off earlier at 4pm when a Saints Staff Team will take on the Scottish Writers Select on the All-Weather Pitch. Football aficionados should stay well clear!
