I have always followed Arbroath’s football club as I was born in the town, even living there for a brief spell before our move to England.
This year they have been top of the league for most of, if not, the whole season.
So before they had officially won I took a risk to book the train to travel up for their last home game!
And they were champions with fixtures to spare, so I can’t wait to go to Gayfield today and see the football, the team and the trophy!
Their manager, Dick Campbell, has been shortlisted for PFA Scotland manager of the year-so possibly more celebration tomorrow if he wins!
I am fiercely proud of both my Scottish and Italian heritage and love my trips back ‘hame’.
I will no doubt have a few photos from today to share tomorrow. Until then c’mon the red lichties!
