Pride of Lions
A poetic story of the mighty Lisbon Lions
Only 17 left in stock
For Celtic supporters 25th May 1967 is a date forever etched in history – the day when their Club became Champions of Europe. Read all about the story of the famous Lisbon Lions in my unique new Book, Pride of Lions.
There have been many accounts written of the European Cup Final of 1967 between Celtic and Inter Milan but this one is different as it is written throughout in verse and comprehensively details how the Lions became a team, includes profile poems of each player, the coaches and the backroom team as well as a detailed account of every game and a special poem about the Final itself. In addition, you will read about how some of the fans got to Lisbon – and some did not- and the wives of two of the players will tell their story of the day and the subsequent homecoming celebrations at Parkhead. You will also hear of the night Jock Stein, himself, visited me from afar!
