This book commemorates one of Scotland's longest surviving village football teams. St. Monans, with a population of around 1500, is a small village situated in the East Neuk of Fife, Scotland. St. Monan's heritage lies in the now long gone fishing ...
and boatbuilding industries. This book preserves the heritage of the local village football team. St. Monans Swifts were the first team from the village and were formed in 1893. The team was renamed St. Monans Swallows in 1959 . Many local families have played for the village club over the years. Success has followed during various periods but the 1935-36 team's achievements will probably never be beaten. Many St. Monans men went on to play senior football and the village has produced international players, at different levels, in football, rugby and athletics. This book also illustrates the spirit and character of a small East Neuk community.
