The Wyness Shuffle

Xmas Special: Good King Wynesslas

December 23, 2020

Allow The Wyness Shuffle to ease you through the pain of the post-Christmas lockdown with this bumper Yuletide episode. Alongside the usual reviews of recent matches and previews of games in a busy festive period, we find out who is the brains of the ICT dressing room, hear from an Alloa supporter on Saturday’s game, go behind the scenes at TCS once more, add to our Nightmare XI, empty Santa’s sack and drop an exclusive Christmas cover version. And if this isn’t enough, there’s another opportunity to win a fantastic ICT-related prize, and a few familiar names drop by to send their Christmas wishes. Get shuffling!
