Aye Write: Pat Nevin – Football and How To Survive It
Sunday 28 May, 2023 at 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, 2 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow G2 3NY
Pat Nevin’s memoir Football and How To Survive It takes us on a journey to the less glamorous side of football. rom Tranmere to Kilmarnock, he plays some of the best football he’s ever played. Then, in an unprecedented twist of fate, finds himself both player and Chief Executive of Scottish First Division club Motherwell.
What follows is an entertaining and revealing tale of the side of football that you rarely see as Pat tries to keep the lid on simmering tensions between owner and the manager; travels in Lear jets one moment, but has to sell off half the team, the next. With impossible challenges at every corner, such as learning that their son is autistic, and the club hurtling towards administration, Pat strives to walk the impossible line between player, parent and boss.
This event will be chaired by John MacKay, STV news anchor and author of The Road Dance.
