"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
An account, rich in both anecdotes and statistics, to chronicle the triumphs and tribulations of ice hockey in the Scottish west coast town of Ayr over a period of 75 years.From the Inside Flap:
From being an exclusive pastime of the wealthy, British ice hockey became an extremely popular spectator sport through the 1930s and 1950s (an era dominated by Canadian professionals). The sport struggled to survive during the 1960s and '70s before regaining popular appeal over the past 20 years in an era of new arenas, European competition and the ill-fated Superleague. Nowhere is this more evident than in Ayr, which has seen dramatic developments at every stage of the sport's history.
Compiled by David Gordon, this absorbing and detailed account is rich in both anecdotes and statistics to chronicle the triumphs and tribulations of ice hockey in this Scottish west coast town over 75 years. Containing many rare photographs, it is an essential read for anyone with an interest in the game.
