    To help lift the gloom of an opening day defeat, John Campbell takes a look back at one of the best Hibernian sides that ever existed......

    Every once in a while a football club has golden periods in it’s history and Hibernian is no different than any other club in that regard. The Forties and Fifties gave birth to the Famous Five, a forward line that mesmerised opposing defences and entertained wherever it played. A fallow period followed although there were sparks of encouragement here and there with some notable victories, especially in European competition, until the Seventies when Turnbull’s Tornadoes treated Hibs fans to some of the best football seen since the days of the Famous Five.

    Losing a player to our city rivals and having them go defunct . No - not the 2008/2009 season. This has been happening for much longer...

    Installment number 3 takes us on towards the 1880/1881 season where Hearts tried to have Hibs expelled from the league.....

    The success of both first and second Hibernian XI’s served to feed the fever of football support in Little Ireland and more and more kids could be seen kicking a ball and shouting “Goal for the Hibernians” This prompted Michael Whelahan to suggest that further Hibernian teams be set up to cater for the demand and the first of those was “Young Ireland” formed in 1879. Can this be an early forerunner to Clubs having a Football Academy and, if so, does it constitute another first for Hibernian?

    In his second installment, hibstorian John Campbell continues his look back at the beginnings of Hibernian Football Club.

    Hibernian Football Club was officially launched on 6 August 1875 whereupon Father Hannan was elected both Manager and Life President. At that point Father Hannan presented the Club with a set of strips which were white with green trim and bore a harp on the breast. At the same time, Michael Whelahan was elected as the first Captain of the Club, a proud moment for both himself and his family.

    In the first of series of articles, Hibstorian John Campbell looks backs to his formative years and recounts the history of Hibernian FC.....

    As the name would suggest, Hibernian Football Club owes its origins not to the natives of Scotland or its Capital City where the Club has existed since being formed in 1875, but to those people of Ireland who fled famine in their home country and chose to carve out new lives for themselves in a new land.
