Was it only yesterday? The twists and turns, the mesmerising weave of Kenny Hibbitt in full flight. Wild, flying Zapata, number seven shirt glistening with sweat glued to his back. Lightening up the crowd with ceaseless, relentless surges down the right flank. A legendary playmaker, hero of a thousand victories. Here, Kenny relates his story from a time immortalised by skill and graft; football from a lost world. – Robert Plant
Kenny Hibbitt is one of the most popular and iconic figures to pull on the famous Wolves shirt. ‘Seasons of My Life’ tells his life story, with major focus on the highs and lows of his 16 years at Molineux, during which he played a prominent role in one of the most fondly remembered and succesful teams in the club’s history.
Kenny shines a light on a host of former team-mates and managers in his own forthright and passionate way, as well as reliving the triumphs and turmoil of daily life inside the dressing room, while he also tells how close he was to rejoining his beloved Wolves as part of the management team.
Lifting the lid on his five decades in the game, he tells of the highs of Europe and winning cups to the despair of bankruptcy at Wolves, while also revealing previously untold family heartache, and how he battled nerves throughout a playing career which was almost ended by a serious condition he coped with for 30 years before finally beating. He also talks of the brutal way his 21-year playing career ended and of his spells in coaching and management with Bristol Rovers, Walsall, Cardiff City and Hednesford Town, along with his 15 years as a Premier League referees assessor.
