Welcome to the third episode of your new favourite podcast – Glory Days of Gold. This episode is brought to you in partnership with Glenrothes-based joinery company KJK Installation.
Recorded across two continents, Glory Days of Gold brings you a regular dose of East Fife FC and Scottish football chat, with a splattering of interesting interviews and fun segments thrown in along the way.
This week we bring you a two-hour interview with a man who has written himself into Bayview folklore, Gary Naysmith.
Gary became part of an exclusive three-man club when he delivered a league championship in 2016, and with approaching a quarter of a century in the game in Scotland and England, he has many a good tale to tell.
We chat with Gary about his time at East Fife, that championship winning season, the mess he came into, and whether he’d like to return to Bayview one day. Plus we look at the highlights and low points of his playing career with Hearts, Everton, Sheffield United, and Scotland, the injuries that plagued his career, and his managerial stint at Queen of the South.
Plus we chat some more about league reconstruction, look at the latest East Fife news from the past week, find out if former East Fife player and coach, and current Dundee United assistant manager, Gordon Forrest fancies a chocolate digestive, and Glenrothes band The Newtown Grunts feature in this week’s Wavelength.
