Dundee club historian Kenny Ross has released his sixth DFC book entitled Dundee FC On This Day which is a welcome addition to the library of Dark Blue books.
It is a journey, in diary form, through the history of The Dee which includes all the major events where the highs to the lows, are covered in detail to give the reader a feel for the ups and downs experienced by The Dee since its formation in 1893. With individual entries for every day, and multiple listings for more historic and busier days, the book includes all the club’s big matches from the joy of title wins and cup runs, to the pain of relegations and administrations.
Dundee Football Club enjoys a long and rich history and the book records the five major trophy wins, the runs to two European semi-finals, the Dee-Fiant season, the promotions, significant events, sensational signings and memorable derby wins over Dundee United.
The Scottish League championship win in 1962 and the Scottish and League Cup victories are countered by the turmoil of relegations, missed promotions and the two administration periods which almost saw the Dens Park doors closed for good. Being a Dundee fan is a roller coaster ride and Dundee FC On This Day captures this unique history and pulls all the strings of it together.
