Synopsis: Since 1875, the Hibernian Football Club has been an integral part of sporting life in the city of Edinburgh and port of Leith, and this first of three volumes picks up the story from 1945, covering the most successful stretch of the club?s history when Hibernian won three championship titles and became the first British club to play in the European Cup, reaching the semifinal. Packed with anecdotal tales of the times, it gives fascinating insight into life at the club when the Famous Five were in their heyday right through to the mid-60s when Joe Baker burst onto the scene. A game-by-game, goal-by-goal account of the many highs and numerous lows, At Easter Road They Play is a fantastic journey back to the days when massive crowds flocked to Easter Road to see Hibernian play.
