Hunting Grounds Summary


Hunting Grounds: A Scottish Football Safari by Gary Sutherland

Some people bag Munros; Gary Sutherland hunts grounds. Come rain, shine, sleet and snow, he visits each of the 42 football grounds in Scotland during one season, documenting the singing, the swearing, the sheer nonsense of what occurs every Saturday afternoon (and sometimes Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays too). Taking each ground as it comes, 'Hunting Grounds' offers an alternative travelogue round Scotland that covers every aspect of our beloved national game: the town and their teams, the fans and their obsessions; from practical factors like public transport and facilities, to the more important things like snacks and pubs. Bets are placed, buses are missed, tears are shed and pies are scoffed. Join him to re-live a glorious Scottish football season without leaving home.
