Welcome to the fifth episode of your new favourite podcast – Glory Days of Gold. This episode is brought to you in partnership with the East Fife Supporters Club.
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.
And for the first time, there’s more people on the show from the other side of the Atlantic than in Scotland as we bring you our latest in-depth interview with a man who spent six seasons at Bayview before heading over to Canada for love, David ‘Div’ Muir.
Div takes us on a hilarious and heartfelt journey through his career at Bayview, the antics from the locker room, his new life in Canada, and a lot more. His love for East Fife shines through in what was a very enjoyable chat and gives you a wonderful insight into what life is like for a lower league footballer.
Find out his memories of that dramatic goal in Peterhead that kept the Fife up, the Aberdeen cup shock, the managers he’s played under, the highlights and heartbreaks, and about the time he quit East Fife. Plus hear such gems as what it was like playing in an unsanctioned league in Canada, which international manager he doesn’t rate, which teammate he hated, which one broke up one of his relationships, and just what happened with a kettle in Greece?
We also look at the results from the East Fife supporters survey, chat about some of the big talking points from Scottish football, find out if former East Fife gaffer Gary Naysmith fancies a chocolate digestive, and Dundee singer-songwriter Michael Marra features in this week’s Wavelength with a song about the legendary Dundee United goalkeeper Hamish McAlpine (yes, we’re ignoring the fact that he also played for R*ith!
