Welcome to my blog…

I’m Craig Easton, coach, ex-pro footballer, and BA (Hons) Professional Sports Writing & Broadcasting graduate.

I’ve been playing football professionally for over 18 years, counting Dundee United, Livingston, Leyton Orient, Swindon Town, Southend United, Dunfermline Athletic and Torquay United FC as my previous clubs. I’ve also played for Scotland at U-21 level – if you’d like to check out my stats, please click here.

I’m a UEFA A licensed coach and have been coaching in the Youth Development and Professional Development phases of professional football for the last few years – currently at Raith Rovers FC.

Football is a huge part of my life and I’ve been kicking a ball about ever since I can remember.

This blog aims to give an insight into the (sometimes) beautiful game from a player and coach’s perspective. I’ll be sharing stories from my playing days as well as commenting on current football and sporting issues.

I may also share some bits and pieces about my life and loves off the pitch.

Thanks for visiting!

    Best Wishes

    • Great to hear from you Clive, I know what your saying with getting to grips with blogging, not something that comes naturally to me either being absolutely hopeless with technology but I’m getting there with a bit of help from the wife!

    Craig how is it going? hope you and your family are well! good luck for the rest of the season.

    • Not bad Daniel, good to hear from you. I’ve got an injury at the moment so things could be better on the football front. How’s you and your Dad doing, still going to watch the O’S? Hope you’re enjoying my blog,


  6. Cooper said:

    Well done on the blog mate, won’t be long til you’re sitting on the couch with Hansen & shearer 🙂 hope your injury clears up soon

    • Thanks mate, good to hear from you. I’m not sure about that. You’ll be pleased to hear Airdrie will feature at some point, maybe in the greatest kits section. My personal favourite was the Bukta one with the black Daziel sponsor.

      • Cooper said:

        If its the red away one with the pin stripes then it was well smart. My favourite was the Avec away top, black with red diamond. You def need to get some BB stories up here, like Pits’ arse being stuck to bus window after mooning at the people as we left camp 🙂

    Craig, I’ll be disapointed if I don’t read a story about the 3 a’sides on friday nights up the church hall or how you were in the losing teams 9 times out of 10 at the non stop cricket. Only joking buddy. All the best with this.


    • Haha, you know that’s not true but I do remember being taught a few keepy up tricks on Blackpool pier, you were on fire!

      Thanks for reading Murph, catch up soon pal.

    All the best with the blog mate, loving the tash pictures haha. That day in May 2010 on Blackpool pier was the peak of Murph’s fottball career. If only Soccer am were there to film it for showboat.

    • Haha, I know, he was on fire! I was still suffering, that’s my excuse!

      Thanks for getting involved pal.
