Synopsis

The first part of A Time in Govan is set in Govan as a young boy grows up during the post war era ending in late 1963. Many of the issue's which affected Govan during this period are described, from social events and court appearances to politics and murders,. The author draws on many of his experiences including his fractured family upbringing and schooling. Strong themes are the demise of the Burgh in terms of employment with the loss of many shipyard jobs and the enormous spirit of togetherness by Govan people despite obvious religious, social and political differences.

In the second part the author recounts stories from the world of football with a bias towards Govan players and teams, from the playground to the World Cup Final.
