The Celtic Jersey

By Macaroon 23 May 2022

It looks as if Paul John Dykes might have struck gold with his latest book The Celtic Jersey.

The gallery and stories of the Celtic jerseys of the past is his forth publication following on from …

The Quality Street Gang, Smiler and Hoops Stars & Stripes.

Here at HWS we are nostalgic in all things Celtic from major to minor detail. Myself and Paul were recently discussing which hooped tops went with which player and which years, Being the trainspotter I am, I recently decided to invest in all the remakes of the kits I wore as a kid from around 1980. This is why I’m eager to see PJD’s gallery.

“A match worn jersey from virtually every one of the home and away shirt variations worn by the club over the last 90 years”

Paul John Dykes’ second book named Smiler was a tribute to club legend Neilly Mochan. This was an interesting read as well, being very well presented with a artistic front cover. The research that went into this book recording immense detail on Mochan’s life was one of the best I’ve read on Celtic’s past legends.

I have no doubt The Celtic Jersey will be another piece of good work. A coffee table book basically showing a gallery of the Celtic jersey, what is not to like; it is a keeper.
