Time for Heroes
FOREWORD BY DAVID GRAY
The 114-year wait for the Scottish Cup to return to Leith is finally over. Year after year, Hibs fans have had to endure the taunts of rival supporters as their team continually failed to capture what had become its Holy Grail. Then, in the 92nd minute of a pulsating Scottish Cup final at Hampden on 21st May 2016, David Gray bulleted home the header that changed everything. The following day around 150,000 Hibees flocked onto the streets of Edinburgh to salute the players and manager who had made history.
Now, in TIME FOR HEROES, Ted Brack relives the events of a tumultuous campaign, from the agony of a League Cup final defeat and the race for promotion to the ecstasy of Scottish Cup glory on a day that will never be forgotten.
