‘you can vote for who you like, you can marry who you like but the number 1 rule of this family is you’re a Saints fan till you die … or you live in the shed!’
May 17. It’s the biggest match to date. It’s the biggest match of his life. And Bobby has the fear.
He’s worried it’s him.
He’s the reason 'teams like St Johnstone' lose.
And he’s not even on the pitch.
Bobby’s love for Saints is about something much bigger than words and actions. It’s inexplicable, unconditional, and often unreciprocated. It’s been with him since his first trip to McDiarmid park aged 8 days old and will stay with him through to his blue and white coffin.
Told through the eyes of fans like Bobby and the guy who almost missed Ando’s clinching goal because he was busy getting a pie, this story explores what St Johnstone FC means to the people of Perthshire and beyond (the other side of the world actually).
Come and support your local club, and the Saintees taking centre spot on the Perth Theatre stage. Let’s make it a night to celebrate, a night we won’t forget and the 2021 party we all wanted but never got to have. Stick in some live local music, chanting fans like the FCU and a riotous half time boxing match – you’ve got yourself a rollicking great night out.
Oh, and one more thing … what’s your order? Ours is a double.
