Eddie Turnbull (12 April 1923 to 30 April 2011)

It is with deep sorrow that the Club announces that Hibernian Legend Eddie Turnbull passed away peacefully this afternoon aged 88.

The Turnbull family asked the Club, which was a major part of Eddie's life, to make this announcement and also a plea for his immediate family to have some time to mourn the passing of a husband, brother, father, grandfather. Further details will be provided in due course.

Club Chairman Rod Petrie said "We are all deeply saddened by the news of Eddie's passing.

"As a player, trainer, coach and manager of the Club there is no-one who has made a greater contribution to the club over many years. The Club will wish to acknowledge more formally his contribution at the appropriate time in consultation with his family."
