By Jockie Wood

Birth Blood and Boundaries is much more than a detailed history of Orkney's Parish Cup, a unique football competition whereby birth and residence determine eligibility to play.

In researching the book, Jockie Wood unearthed a treasure trove of stories and yarns, which he relates with style and humour.

Added to that are illustration by The Orcadian newspaper cartoonist, Alex Leonard.

Conversely, incidents of sadness and tragedy associated with the Parish Cup are retold with feeling and compassion.

Birth Blood and Boundaries will inform and amuse in equal measure.

From the competition's inception in the 1920s, each competition, from 1930 to 2006, is documented, with anecdotes and match details.
