Back cover text:

On 21 May this year, Hibs made history by winning the Scottish Cup for the first time since 1902. It was a time of celebration when the supporters revelled in their victory and remembered the great heroes of the club.

Eric Stevenson is one of those great heroes.

When he was inducted into the Hibs Hall of Fame at Easter Road in 2012, Stevenson declared, ‘This means everything to me. My uncle founded the Bonnyrigg Hibs supporters club in 1949–50 and I started going to games when I was seven’. This book traces Stevenson’s fanatical interest in the club from a very young age, his time as a left-winger wearing the number eleven green and white jersey in the ’60s, and the well-deserved recognition that he has gained today.

Throughout his career, Stevenson also played for Hearts and Ayr United, but this story shows that ultimately he is truly Hibs Through and Through.
