Hibernian: From Joe Baker to Turnbull's Tornadoes

Regular price $21.94

From the publisher:

Hibernian: From Joe Baker to Turnbull's Tornadoes begins in the turbulent 1960s with the club in serious decline, culminating in relegation only being avoided at Easter Road on the final day of the 1963-64 season. The appointment of legendary manager Jock Stein in 1964 saw an immediate improvement in the relegation-haunted side. The Hibs team of the mid '60s featured an all-Scottish international forward line, and the return of player Eddie Turnbull as manager in 1971 saw the emergence of possibly Hibs' greatest-ever side - the magical Turnbull's Tornadoes.

Packed full of detail this book is a must not only for Hibs supporters, but also for any football fan who is interested in this defining period in the history of our game.

The author:

TOM WRIGHT was taken to his first game aged nine, a friendly against Leicester City at Easter Road in February 1957. He did not realise at the time that football, and Hibs in particular, would become such a major influence in his life from that day on. Former secretary of the Hibs Former Players’ Association, he is now the official club historian and curator of the Hibernian Historical Trust, a supporter-led initiative whose aims are to protect, preserve and promote the proud history of Hibernian Football Club.
