The Scottish Non League Review
was at the forefront of publishing research on Junior and Senior non-league football, the annual SNLR yearbook, the 'Bible of Non League football', being a must have.

Stewart Davidson decided to 'retire' after 30 years at the helm and has a number of his publications still available for sale at discounted prices. These booklets are hard to come by and contain a plethora of historical material; club histories, sourcebooks, league and cup histories including a complete record of the Scottish Qualifying Cup.

Stewart has compiled a list of the available books, please take a look and grab yourself a bargain!


Junior Scotland 1889 to 2019: The Players and Matches
Douglas Gorman and Tom McGouran have compiled the most comprehensive record of Scotland's junior international football team, Junior Scotland 1889 to 2019: The Players and Matches is available from 

An excel spreadsheet giving a summary account of this (dates, line-ups, scorers etc) can be accessed HERE

To help fill in the missing information, they have compiled a NEEDS LIST. Please have a look and if you can help in any way please email me and I will forward it on to them.
