About the Author
ALEX CROPLEY played for Hibernian, Arsenal and AstonVilla football clubs, among others. Born in Aldershot to a family of semiprofessional football players, he also played for the Scottish national side in the 1970s. Two dreadful leg-breaks resulted in many English First Division games being missed before his move to Aston Villa. Affectionately known as 'Studs' at Villa because of his ferocious tackling, Cropley retired due to injuries during his tenure there. 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 is the author of Hibernian: From Joe Baker to Turnbull's Tornadoes and The Golden Years: Hibernian in the Days of the Famous Five.

So, for me this is a winner!
A classic tale of a smashing lad from a working class background making his way in the big wide world, and making a great job of it!
Crops was one of my favourite players - honest, talented and committed - Villa fans loved him, and this book represents his endeavours perfectly!
