Duncan Falconer - Fantastic Fiction

The late 50s and early 60s had been a challenging time for the club, a time of transition, making it extremely difficult for any youngster to force himself into the side on a regular basis, and unfortunately, during the following few seasons he would struggle to hold down a regular place. His last appearance for the first team was a 5-2 home victory against Queen of the South on March 7 1964. We are delighted that Duncan Falconer, who has managed the Woodward and Falconer business on a day to day basis since its inception, will be joining Hydes. Duncan’s skills will not only contribute to the continuing strong performance of the Woodward and Falconer pubs but will benefit the Hydes business as a whole.

Background - Duncan Falconer

Duncan says: “He was armed to the teeth, famous for walking with his rifle held out in front of him. He would shoot you as soon as he saw you. It was a baptism of fire.”Also writing in The Guardian, Wendy Ide described the film as "[l]ess an action movie, more a direct breach of the Geneva conventions" and was also critical of Nielsen, "Connie Nielsen is staggeringly bad as Stratton’s boss. She sounds like a drunk person trying to do a posh accent to get out of being breathalysed. A career low." [12] Tim Robey of The Telegraph sums up the film: "Wholly useless, entirely harmless, Stratton would be good clean fun, if it was good or fun." [13] We were saddened to learn of the passing of Duncan Falconer, who featured for The Hibees in the late 1950s and early 60s. In just over five seasons at Easter Road, Falconer would make 63 appearances in all competitions for the first team.

Duncan Falconer decided to continue his pursuit of a writing career in the United Kingdom. His first literary publication was First into Action. The military thriller was about Falconer’s adventures in the military. Most of the plotline are semi-biographical accounts of his actions in the Special Boat Services and in the 14 Intelligence Detachment. Although there were other ex-military novelists in the market, Falconer’s work was distinctive. He not only provided striking visualizations about his military escapades, he also depicted the relationships formed between comrades along with the humorous aspects of military life. His last appearance for the first team was a 5-2 home victory against Queen of the South on March 7, 1964. Although he had accompanied the side on the close-season tour of Germany and Yugoslavia in 1960, Falconer would have great difficulty in securing a regular place in the first team.There didn't seem to be much of a resolution to the romantic subplot either, which, lets face it, no one who reads these types of novels does so for the romantic plots that are often thrown into the mix, but this romance seemed to be unfinished, and after the importance that it had during the story, that was surprising. Hydes Brewery Limited is delighted to announce the acquisition of Chester-based pub company Woodward and Falconer.
