An anecdotal and personal journey, this volume highlights the many challenges, and lows and highs experienced by the team and its dedicated fans over the last 142 years; exploring the events that shaped the club from both World Wars, Hibs' 'Famous Five' days, the European Cup and the Scottish Cup win in 2016.

Author Bio

TOM WRIGHT was taken to his first game aged nine, a friendly against Leicester City at Easter Road in February 1957. Little did he realise that football, and Hibs in particular, would become such a major influence in his life from that day on. Wright has now been a Hibs supporter for over 50 years, and has the scars to prove it. Previously the Secretary of the Hibs Former Players’ Association, Wright is now the official club historian and curator of the Hibernian Historical Trust. He conducts regular Easter Road stadium tours for Hibs. He is the author of Hibernian: From Joe Baker to Turnbull’s Tornadoes, The Golden Years: Hibernian in the Days of the Famous Five and Crops.
