Bloody Scotland Football Match: Scotland v England

About Bloody Scotland Football Match: Scotland v England

Welcome to the thud and blunder that is the annual Scotland v England crime writers’ football match on the hallowed turf of Cowane’s Hospital bowling green with The Bloody Cup at stake. Scotland won the inaugural match 13-1 in 2014 and triumphed again 6-2 in 2017, while the teams played out a dramatic 5-5 draw in 2015. Other results also occurred. The winners may write the history books, but the losers write the festival brochure. Final line-ups will, as ever, depend on fitness and deadlines but are set to include Chris Brookmyre, Craig Robertson and Jonathan Whitelaw for Scotland, while England will feature Mark Billingham, Luca Veste and Howard Linskey.

Special thanks to Cowane’s Hospital Maintenance Trust for use of their grounds.
