Book Launch: Bobby Walker - This is his Story

28th September 2021

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new book 'Bobby Walker - This is his Story' by Colin Robertson and Andrew Hoggan.

The first book to ever tell the story of Bobby Walker, considered by many to be the finest player in Europe at his peak from 1896 to 1913, reveals the highs and lows of his career with Hearts and his outstanding international record. The extensively researched publication also contains numerous images that cannot be sourced in modern day publications. 

Co-author Colin Robertson said:

"While researching Bobby Walker’s career with Hearts we constantly heard that no book had ever been produced. We hope that this book will serve as a tribute and tremendous record for Hearts fans and historians." 

Members of the late Bobby Walkers family will be attending Saturday’s match against Motherwell at Tynecastle to mark the official launch of the book for sale.
