Behind the Goals: Ally Palmer of Nutmeg Magazine

Date: 14th May 2018

This week we are joined by Ally Palmer, editor of the excellent Nutmeg football periodical. Since 2016 it has been published every quarter in a format somewhere between a book and a magazine. Unsurprisingly, given Ally’s background as a newspaper designer, each issue is a beautiful addition to any bookshelf, and the long-form articles cover a huge range of topics – mostly relating to Scottish football.

We chatted about the inspirations for Nutmeg, some of Ally’s favourite articles, and his thoughts on the future of sports journalism in general.

Issue 8 will be published in June, get it from or head over there right now and get one of their back issues – we can thoroughly recommend Issue 4 which has an excellent article about Raith Rovers by someone called Alan Russell!
