Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Henry Edward "Harry" Hibbs was an English football goalkeeper who played for Birmingham and England in the 1920s and 1930s. His uncle and cousin - Hubert Pearson and Harold Pearson - were also both professional players. Hibbs was born in Wilnecote, Staffordshire and, whilst training as a plumber, played for his local club sides Wilnecote Holy Trinity and Tamworth Castle, who had some torrid seasons in the Birmingham and District Football League. Despite this, Hibbs came to the attention of Birmingham City when he was 17 years of age, and impressed so much in trials that he was offered professional forms in May 1924. Among such club legends as Frank Womack and Joe Bradford, Hibbs became a regular feature of Billy Beer's side, but it was a barren period in the club's history.show more
