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.
Our guest this week is a man who is a Scottish football lower league legend, who has won four league championships with three different clubs, one of them being East Fife, Bobby Linn.
We take a journey through Bobby’s career in a refreshingly frank and funny interview as we look back at his time at Bayview, hear the stories he has to tell, look at all the highs and lows, and the relationship he has with East Fife fans today. We talk ferries, taxis, what makes him tick, and a lot, lot more.
Lee and Michael also look at all the main East Fife and Scottish football news from the past week, plus we chat with current gaffer Darren Young about the club’s recent signings from the U20 squad and the future of the much heralded Anton Dowds.
Plus we look at the 2022 World Cup kick off times that have been announced, find out if former Fifer Div Muir fancies a chocolate digestive, and indie legends Half Man Half Biscuit feature in this week’s football music section Wavelength. We also add in a couple of new features this week, but we won’t spoil the surprises here.
