About the Author

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. He is following in a family tradition of Hibs fans, which can be traced back to at least World War I. Previously the Secretary of the Hibs Former Players' Association, Wright is now the official club historian and curator of the Hibernian Historical Trust. This supporter-led initiative aims to protect, preserve and promote the proud history of Hibernian Football Club.
