TOM O’MALLEY | HIS MEMORY MARCHES ON

TOM O’MALLEY | HIS MEMORY MARCHES ON

By: Hibernian FC on 28 Aug, 2020 18:46

Hibernian FC is today sad to learn of the passing of former chairman Tom O’Malley.

Tom, a much-respected former head teacher, served throughout the 1990s as a non-executive director. When the club was relegated to the First Division for season 1998-99 he reluctantly agreed to ‘act as a bridge’ and become chairman to help guide the club back to the top flight, which was achieved in record fashion under manager Alex McLeish. True to his word, he then resigned and returned to his place in the stands.

Chairman Ronald J Gordon said: “Everyone at the club is saddened by the news. I didn’t ever have the pleasure of meeting Tom O’Malley, but those who knew him tell me he was devoted to the club and a real gentleman. Our thoughts are with his family and his friends.”

His memory marches on.
