On 30th October 2013, hundreds of fans turned out to celebrate The Alex Cropley Story Book Launch.

Crops tells the story of the life and career of Hibernian, Arsenal and Aston Villa icon Alex Cropley.

Also in attendance was a selection of Hibs legends including Eric Stevenson, John Fraser, Pat Stanton, John Blackley, Jackie McNamara Snr. John Brownley, Neil Martin, Peter Cormack, Billy Hunter and Jim Black. And all were welcoming and more than willing to share a tale or two.

Not forgetting of course, the man of the hour, Alex Cropley seen here with author and Hibernian Club Historian Tom Wright.

Fans from all 3 clubs were in attendance and shared tales of when Cropley graced the field with his tough tackling and silky skill style.



But everyone could agree - you don't see many players like that any more.

Crops: The Alex Cropley Story is a great read and will be an ideal Christmas present for any football fan.
