Back Heel (Digital download)


A selection of Scottish football writing from Nutmeg.

A PDF edition of Back Heel for tablet or desktop
Published December 2023

Since 2016, over 1,000 articles about Scottish football’s past, present and future have appeared in the pages of Nutmeg. Now, to commemorate reaching print magazine Issue 30 and offer a catch-up for those who have not read Nutmeg before, a beautifully-curated selection of them is published together for the first time.

Back Heel brings together wonderful storytelling on subjects as diverse as Bobby Murdoch and Ralph Milne, play-by-mail managers and the Monkey Gland Mystery, the Riccarton Three and the true meaning of ‘Dundee United’ in Nigeria. Its thirty co-authors include Alan Pattullo, Archie McPherson, Dani Garavelli, Daniel Gray, Harry Pearson, Hugh MacDonald, Neil Forsyth, Peter Ross and Stuart Cosgrove.

These sumptuous pages offer fine writing about the Scottish game and are elegantly illustrated – a treasury to re-read or luxuriate in for the first time.
