The Drew Busby Story
30th June 2013
A new book, 'The Drew Busby Story' is available about the career of the former 1970s Airdrie and Hearts icon, who later represented Morton and Queen of the South.
Once printing costs and overheads are met from a small volume of initial sales, the remaining profit will be donated to the clubs Drew represented during his senior career.
The help of ex-Hearts player Donald Ford (who has assisted the Hearts Foundation) was sought and he has kindly provided a foreword. Donald has previewed the contents and described it as "an excellent read, in particular for those who saw Drew playing."
The 114 page book, measuring 8.25" x 5.85" (A5 pages) will be published in the summer 2013 and will contain many previously unseen images from Drew's schools football teams through to the senior sides he represented. Some images have been sourced from Drew's own cuttings archive.
Drew's recall is very engaging and captivating where he talks about the personalities he played with and against as well as the managerial styles of those he played under. Drew pulls no punches and tells about situations as they were. Revered at Broomfield Park and hero-worshipped at Tynecastle, this book will delight many. It is a must for any true football fan and will appeal to those aged 40+ who saw Busby star in senior football.
Priced at £9.99 plus £2.50 P&P (£12.49) for first class delivery, all profits from the publication will be donated to the senior clubs Drew represented.
