Gordon Smith
Prince of Wingers
Tony Smith

6 1/2" x 9" • 340 pages • B&W photo section
ISBN 9781845023515 • hardback • $28.00

Gordon Smith: Prince of Wingers is a biographical story recounting the life of legendary footballer Gordon Smith and written by his son Tony. One of the "Famous Five," Gordon Smith won the league with Hibernian on three separate occasions during an eighteen-year-long glittering career with the club. With Heart of Midlothian he won another league medal as well as a League Cup medal, followed by yet another championship medal with Dundee. He represented his country on thirty-nine separate occasions, captaining them three times.

His mesmeric skills and grace gave joy to many football fans, not only during his time with the Leith club, but also whilst playing for Heart of Midlothian, Dundee and Scotland. The book itself describes Gordon's life from humble beginnings in backstreet alleys kicking stones in place of a football to the stature of becoming one of the most naturally gifted players in the history of British football - whilst giving readers a unique insight into the life of this very private man.

Tony Smith lives by the coast in East Lothian near the seaside town of North Berwick with his partner Louise and their two girls Marly and Jaiden, and two boys Danaan and Cale. He is a professional musician specialising in piano and keyboards with a studio based in the family home.
