In Winning Through Brian Irvine tells the truth about his life as a footballer. From family life in Airdrie we follow him as he realises his boyhood dreams. He becomes an international player with Aberdeen and Scotland. But he has to cope with bad times, and worse, when he is told he has a serious and possibly fatal illness. Finally, he has to come to terms with the end of a long playing career. Brian's Christian faith and strong family ties help him to cope, and to 'win through'.
