Fife Flyers On This Day

By (author) John Ross

The Fife Flyers have played ice hockey for over ten decades and are the oldest team currently playing at the highest level of the game in Britain. During that time the sport has witnessed radical change which has resulted in periods of boom and bust, from fully professional status to strictly amateur and combinations in between. But for almost 85 years the team from the Gallatown Rink in Kirkcaldy, Fife, has endured. Such longevity is a naturally rich source of stories and memories for those who have either played for, supported or indeed been in opposition to the Fife Flyers. Or simply for hockey fans in general. The stories come from the diligent reporting by local journalists, without whom much of the detail of the game would have been lost. Ice Hockey is not a sport that enjoys an extensive archive of data. Much of the history of the Fife Flyers has never been documented, and this book is not a full history. What it does aims to do is to give an insight into both the different eras of hockey and the fortunes and misfortunes of one Club along the way.
