Aberdeen: European Nights

Ally Begg

Foreword by Willie Miller


'packed with evocative stories from the glory years' - Neil Drysdale, The Press and Journal


Aberdeen have competed on the European stage since season 1967/68 and have enjoyed some epic encounters along the way, culminating in the club’s greatest ever victory – beating Real Madrid 2–1 in the 1983 Cup Winners’ Cup final. Ally Begg charts a path through Aberdeen’s storied history in Europe, vividly bringing to life the most interesting, exciting, and unforgettable games by interviewing players from Aberdeen and their rivals and augmenting them with his own richly rendered memories. 

Aberdeen: European Nights takes the reader on a nostalgic romp around the continent, crossing beyond the Iron Curtain and building a fortress at home at Pittodrie. Humorous, quirky and insightful, it is the perfect book for Aberdeen fans, young and old.
