015 Linlithgow boss Brown Ferguson: continuing family fortunes at The Rose, why Uruguayan football succeeds where Scottish football fails, lessons learned from Stenhousemuir & working with Commonwealth Games stars


LINLITHGOW'S eye-catching main stand is named after Brown Ferguson's grandad's brother.

The lounge at Prestonfield has his grandfather's name above the door.

Plus there's a plaque not far from the pie stall which remembers his late uncle.

Brown used to charge about the ground as a toddler - but now he's the man charged with bringing them glory.

But The Rose's manager isn't just concerned with success in the East of Scotland League.

In a fascinating chat deep-thinker Brown talks about his research into just why Scottish football has failed for so long - and why the likes of Uruguay and Iceland punch above their weight.

He also tells us about the parallels between the young footballers he saw while working at Rangers' academy and elite athletes like swimmer Duncan Scott who he deals with in his day job as a performance lifestyle adviser with SportScotland.

We hear about just what he learned during his spell as Stenhousemuir manager, why he thinks the Lowland League will soon be the most competitive league in the country and the day he gave one of his players the chance to give the teamtalk.

All that and more on Episode 15 of Down The Divisions.
