Abstract
On the 3rd of November 2008, Brooks Mileson, the former owner of Gretna Football Club passed away after a long battle against illness. Better known for centuries as a haven for eloping English lovers seeking to wed in defiance of their parents and English law, in recent years, fairy tale romance in Gretna has centred not on fleeing lovers but on the attempts of this English businessman to live his dream through a Scottish football club.
