Dumfries is in the south of Scotland, not far from the border with England but there football team isn't called Dumfries. Like many Scottish clubs they seem to want to leave it very ambiguous where exactly the club is from. "Queen of the South" suggests a southern origin but gives no more clue than that. The "Doonhamers" don't really bother those beyond the Scottish lower leagues much beyond the odd cup run and a rather strange appearance in the dreadful film "A Shot at Glory" in which Robert Duvall did such a bad Scottish accent so as to be mockingly racist. In the film Queen of the South are a "big" team in the way of the film's heroes. Seriously, Queen of the South were the baddies! Who'd have thought it?
