The 12th Man Football Fanzine

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, thanks to Scotty for letting me post this up once again.

Issue Five of The 12th Man will be out next week.

Whats in this Issue?

The Ba Game: We take a look at a version of Medieval football played mostly in Orkney and the Scottish Borders, around Xmas and New Year time.

Subbuteo: We look at the World Famous Table Top game and how it is still popular despite the rise and rise of computers and games consoles. Also have an exclusive interview with Mark Adolph the son of Peter Adolph who invented Subbuteo.

Q&A with Kenny Arthur: William McCafferty interviews Kenny Arthur, one time Partick Thistle goalkeeper now between the sticks at Accrington Stanley.

Q&A with Ewen Cameron: Our Editor tackles Real Radio Phone-in Presenter and Hearts fan Ewen Cameron.

The Pyramid System: We take a wee look at the Pyramid System and if it will benefit Scottish Football.

Scottish Cup Final Preview: We look ahead to the Scottish Cup Final and preview the two teams who will be battling it out for one of the World's oldest trophy's.

The Next Scotland Captain: We look at the contenders for Scotland Captain, and who we feel should be the next man to lead us on the pitch.

We will also take a look at the Player, Young Player and Manager of the Year contenders nominated by the SPFA, who we feel should have won and who did win.

We also have our usual regular features - The Final Whistle, Oor Football Years, Poetry Corner and our brand new feature - 'A Matter of Fact.' Plus much more.

Remember you can get your hands on this Issue and all our back issues from Scotzine.com for FREE.
