Enchanted by stories of Hibernian told to him by his father, Andy MacVannan experienced his first Hibs game at the age of ten in 1980. Hooked on the phenomenon of football, he became an avid supporter of the Hibees, regularly attending matches both home and away. In We are Hibernian Andy sets out to explore the emotional and enduring connection to Hibs that unites all fans. Over the course of a year and a half, inter-viewing supporters from all walks of life, he discovered that football is far more than a game, and that Hibernian lies at the crux of many different friendships and communities.
Luath Press have re-released the book of fans' memories entitled We Are Hibernian in which we learn that the Proclaimers have always kept the cup final date clear from any gigs every year just in case, despite the mocking of non Hibees. THE HERALD
