The Lone Rangers:
An English Club’s Century in Scottish Football
Tom Maxwell

Berwick Rangers, whose tiny ground lies in the northernmost reaches of Northumberland, have been ploughing a lone English furrow in Scottish football for more than a century. In The Lone Rangers, Tom Maxwell explores the confused national identity of Berwick-upon-Tweed and its unique football club and talks to some of its greatest players who have worn the iconic black and gold shirt. The Lone Rangers features interviews with a host of former international stars, including Gary Lineker, Ally McCoist, John Greig, Pat Nevin, Trevor Steven and Gordon McQueen. It tells the story of a tiny club that played a pivotal role in the career of Sir Alex Ferguson and for whom every fixture is an international. You’ll also find out if Berwick-upon-Tweed really is at war with Russia!
