Sunset on Hibs: The Plot to Destroy Hibernian (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


David Duff was Chairman of Hibernian at one of the most extraordinary times in the clubs history. In 1990 Wallace Mercer, then Chairman of Hearts pushed for a merger of the two clubs. For long agonising weeks the fate of one of Scotlands great footballing institutions hung in the balance. With internal shareholders wanting to sell out, with institutions pushing for it, the end seemed inevitable but David Duff had other ideas. With huge fan support he led the charge against a takeover which would have meant the end of the club he loved. For the first time he tells the true story of the plot to destroy Hibernian, of those behind it and of their real motivations. It is a riveting story of double dealing, greed and betrayal featuring a cast of some of the best known names in Scottish business and football, often in surprising roles.

But the book is about much more than this. It is about the club and its players at the time featuring never before told stories and anecdotes about legends such as John Collins and Andy Goram. It is about European nights behind the Iron curtain, about knife edge football matches and about a man who dreamt of taking Hibs to the summit of Scottish football, but most of all it is about the terrible danger when money and greed meet sport.
