Club Poet

Fittingly on World Poetry Day in 2016, St. Johnstone became the first professional Scottish football club to appoint an official Club Poet.

Season-ticket holder Jim C Mackintosh, who had already published four collections of his poetry, took up the voluntary position to write poems on the club he loves on a regular basis.


Below you can watch his outstanding recital of 'Mind the Time' at the St. Johnstone Hall of Fame night at Perth Concert Hall on Sunday 3rd April 2016:
