Were you one of the 3734 fans present for the opening of the Caledonian Stadium in November 1996?  Our opponents that day were Albion Rovers.  Albion Rovers were also our opponents later on in the season when, to great celebrations, we clinched the 3rd Division title.

The story of both historic games is told in "Milestones and Memories", Ian Broadfoot's fascinating new book celebrating all things ICT in the first 25 years.

Read what Chairman Dougie McGilvray had to say about the opening of the stadium and learn about his bet with Tam Cowan!

Read what captain Mike Noble and fans' favourite Paul Cherry had to say about the title winning campaign.

Many of the club's most memorable and important matches are highlighted in this wonderful book.  You can learn about the milestones and re-live the memories, but only if enough money is raised to cover the printing cost.  You can help by pre-ordering the book and/or making a donation through the club shop.  All profits will go directly to the club, so this is a wonderful opportunity to both relive some great memories and help the club out at this desperately challenging time.

Absolutely delighted to be able to announce that in less than 2 weeks we have reached the target to get "Milestones and Memories" to print.  On behalf of Ian Broadfoot, the Supporters Trust and the Club, many, many thanks to all who pre-ordered, donated or simply passed the message on.  Ian will now get the final copy together and we can start planning the launch of the book itself.   More info on that in due course.

The club has now taken the donations page down from the online shop but you can still pre-order.  Not only will that secure your copy but it will also help the club's cash flow at this very challenging time.

Just to let everyone know that final updates to the book have been made, proofs approved and the order placed and paid for.  It is now up to the printers to do their stuff and the books should be with the Club within a few weeks.  I am sure that when fans read the book, they will agree it has been worth waiting for.  But publishing the book would not have been possible without everyone who has pre-ordered copies, bought advertising and made donations.  Ian Broadfoot, the Club and the Supporters Trust are extremely grateful to all of you who have made it possible to get "Milestones and Memories" to print.

Unfortunately, the virus means that we will not be able to have the kind of launch we had originally envisaged. But we are discussing with the club how best to launch the book and will update you with news of that when we can.

The option to pre-order books remains available on the on-line shop.  All books pre-ordered will be signed by Ian with a dedication if you wish.  So if you haven't ordered yet but would like a signed copy,  click here.
