Cowdenbeath FC - The Club History Series

Posted†December 16, 2022

In 2020 we published the three volume History of Cowdenbeath FC. It was a must have for every Cowdenbeath fan — it told the story from Mrs Margaret Pollock buying the first football ever seen in Cowdenbeath in 1880 right up to lockdown 2020 and everything in between!

The 3 volumes tell the story of Cowdenbeath FC in words and pictures (over 250 pictures are included.

Part 1 - The Signalmen - covers the club’s most successful period 1880 to 1940
Part 2 – The Miners - looks at the Post-War era 1940 to 2000
Part 3 – The Blue Brazil - covers the turbulent and exciting 21st Century Cowden

Each volume is 52 pages (with no adverts) adding up to a 156-page history of Cowdenbeath FC. This proved to be such a popular publication that it ended up as a complete sell-out. But due to continued demand we have arranged for a reprint and the 3 volumes are now back in stock. We also have a 4th volume available - ‘Still Flying the Flag’ which is an illustrated Oral History of Cowdenbeath FC. The story is told primarily by those who have played for the club over the years adding a fresh perspective on the Club history.

However, that’s not all as hot off the presses the club has now published ‘When the Sun Shines’ – a 5th volume in the trilogy! Or at least Part V in the Cowdenbeath FC history series. This volume focuses on various aspects of the club’s rich history and again is a lavishly illustrated 52-page publication. So with Christmas coming up there is now the opportunity to add this latest publication to your letter to Santa or indeed purchase all five volumes which would be an ideal gift for any Cowden fan.†
