The Making of Hibernian: Volume 1 1875-1893

The Harp Awakes

'an invaluable work packed with information' – Absolute Game

'one of the finest football books I have ever read' – Eugene McBride (author and football historian)

'a riveting experience' – Irish Post

The first volume of Alan Lugton’s The Making of Hibernian series chronicles the early history of Hibernian Football Club. Beginning with its founding in 1875, in order to provide recreation for young men from Edinburgh’s ’Little Ireland’, it traces the club’s trials and fortunes to its emergence as a non-sectarian club in 1893 and its Scottish Cup success of 1902.

Drawing on a huge amount of information, including library resources, Catholic church records, periodicals, newpapers and the personal memoires of many old-timers, this book forms part of the definitive story of one of Edinburgh’s most famous football clubs. It includes a detailed record of all Hibernian results from 1875 to 1893.

Alan Lugton, in common with his late father and grandfather, a native of Edinburgh, has been 'Hibs daft' all his life. He has transmitted his enthusiasm and affection for the club to his wife, to his children and to his friends, and practically all his spare time over the past thirty years has been devoted to exploring and recording the history of Hibernian.
