Veteran football commentator and author Archie MacPherson is coming to Largs next year.

The octogenarian will be talking to sports journalist Graham Spiers on stage at Barrfields Theatre about his extensive career on 29 February.

Archie has written about many of the legendary figures of Scottish football and attended many world and great European nights so he will have many stories and anecdotes from these heady days.

His 50 years plus career in broadcasting and writing shows few signs of abating.

A former teacher who rose to prominence at BBC Scotland in the late 1960s, becoming one of Britain’s most recognisable football presenters and commentators.

Macpherson has worked for the BBC – with whom he had a noted fall-out – Eurosport, STV, Radio Clyde and Radio Scotland among others.

He is an expert on Jock Stein, whose work he covered as a journalist and whom he got to know behind the scenes with Celtic and Scotland.
