Interview: Jason Thomson
Arbroath defender Jason Thomson joins Daniel Gray for a fascinating delve into his 16-year career. Thomson gives a behind-the-scenes insight into rising though the Hearts ranks, life under Vladimir Romanov, happy times at Turnbull Hutton’s Raith and Red Lichties glory with Dick Campbell. In a candid, compelling conversation, Thomson talks about the challenges of starting a first ‘real job’ aged 31, the perils of being a lower division footballer and the anxieties faced by players as they approach their career ends.
Quizball, Spam Hill and Proper Grounds
In this conversational canter through issue 16 of the magazine, host Daniel Gray is joined by Nutmeg Publisher Ally Palmer and the author and journalist James Morgan. They discuss the authentic beauty of Scottish football grounds, a promising coaching innovation and other issue 16 highlights. Plus, BBC man Giancarlo Rinaldi on the charisma of Palmerston Park, Ginny Clark on a Queen’s Park legend, Greg Gordon on the genius of Jocky Scott, Jon Spurling on a quiz show in which contestant Ian Ure was declared an ‘intellectual revelation’, and poetry from the marvellous Stephen Watt.
