Kevin Donnelly is a long term Scotland fan who over the last five decades has followed the team to four World Cups, two European Championships and numerous friendlies.
He has just written a book based on four Scotland away games in 1996-97. The book is called Chancers, Dancers and Romancers.
It features two Scotland fans, Kenny Bradley and Gus McSween, as they follow Scotland to Vienna, Riga, Tallinn and Monte Carlo.
This all sounds quite simple apart from the fact a nasty wee posh Scot called Atholl McClackit is looking to kill Kenny; his father-in-law wants Kenny to help with a jewel heist; and his real dad wants to introduce himself into Kenny’s life.
Blending real life Tartan Army antics with a story that could happen to anyone if you think about it, “Chancers, Dancers and Romancers” is a rip-roaring trip around Europe involving drinking, sex, murder, crime and more drinking.”
The book costs £9.99 (inc 2nd class UK postage).
Kevin is kindly donating all proceeds to the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal.
The book can be ordered for UK delivery from Moonfruit
For non-UK delivery, please visit Amazon UK or Amazon US
And ebook version is available for your Kindle

Yesterday evening, on behalf of the Sunshine Appeal, I handed the Chairman of the Temi Community an additional donation of 1412 lari. This was cash which was sent to the Sunshine Appeal by our supporters after they returned from Georgia. Martin, and the rest of the staff and children at Temi, are extremely grateful for your continued support. Anyone who was at the donation in Tbilisi, or has read about the organisation on our website, will have no doubt that the money you have donated will be put to extremely good use. Thank you!
Everywhere We Go!

Some people in the Sunshine Appeal upper echelons are aware I have written a book and all proceeds from the book are going to the Sunshine Appeal. As such, John Daly has put the squeeze on one certain Stuart Cosgrove to get me on Off the Ball to promote the book.
So this is one for your diary.
I am appearing on Off the Ball on Radio Scotland on the 7th of November. It kicks off at 12 and I will be plugging my new book “Chancers, Dancers and Romancers”.
The book will be available in hard copy in the next couple of weeks. It is currently available on kindle if you wish to purchase it.
Regarding the show, I am bricking it
Here are a few bits and pieces from the Georgia donation (full visit report to follow).
Look! Here’s a letter from the British Ambassador in Tbilisi.

Video clips from the donation you say?
At last night’s WESTA meeting (30th August), Derek Moore (MD at Kelburn Brewing) presented a cheque on behalf of the brewery to the Tartan Army Sunshine Appeal. Kelburn had pledged to donate to The Appeal for every bottle of their “Tartan Army” beer sold at Lidl. The campaign raised £500 for the Sunshine Appeal.
