From the publisher:
Following the sudden resignation of manager Dave Ewing in 1971, former player Eddie Turnbull was to turn over a new leaf for a team facing relegation. Playing from 1946 to 1959 and forming part of the Hibernian’s ‘Famous Five’ forward line, Turnbull would now take the managerial hot seat at his hallowed Easter Road.
From Hibernian historian Tom Wright comes a fascinating, in-depth look into the whirlwind seasons for a Hibs side under Eddie Turnbull: the players, fans, successes, clashes, defeats, controversies and more.
Going down in history with just one major title, behold the rise and eventual fall of the magical Turnbull’s Tornadoes – possibly Hib’s greatest ever side.
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.
