A new football book by a local author

Referees certainly haven't been 'flavour of the month' for us at Palmerston in those past couple of games but one exception is Tony Davis.

Tony has just written a very interesting book regarding his many refereeing experiences in the Stewartry region of  South West Scotland and all monies raised will be returned to the teams in the Stewartry  Sunday Amateur League which has been in existence now for 30 years.

Having commenced refereeing in the very same year as the league started, in 1979, he got the idea for the book when he began to encounter many 'first time for everything' happenings at a late stage in his career and decided they were all worth while recording.

The book title came quite naturally when he discovered that his 'Brummie' accent, coupled with his witty catchphrase, 'Geronwithit' helped considerably to control games.

Now 65, Tony was born and raised in Kidderminster, Worcester, but moved north in 2003 and now resides in Castle Douglas. Both he and his 'better half', Christine, are season ticket holders at Palmerston and keen Queens' fans.

He had his official book launch in the upper lounge at Palmerston yesterday and it proved a big success. The book can be purchased from Waterstones, Booksellers, Dumfries and Lows, Newsagent, King Street, Castle Douglas, priced at £7, or direct from the author himself at 60 St Andrew Street, Castle Douglas, DG7 1EN.
