THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

Cowdenbeath have been based at Central Park since 1917. With the club planning to move to a new stadium in the near future, the film-maker Ross Cunningham has told the story of the ground in this short documentary When The Sun Shines. Cunningham's film shows the importance of the club to the community through interviews with local fans, including Gordon Brown, whose grandfather watched the club play their way into Scotland's top tier in 1924. As Craig Winter, who scored the last-minute winner that earned the club promotion to the Second Division in 2001, concludes: "It's not the greatest of surroundings, but this is what football is all about."
