The Scottish FA’s South East region has expressed delight at one of its team being inducted into the Hibernian FC Hall of Fame.

Keith Wright, now a football development officer in Midlothian, was inducted at a special dinner at Easter Road last week.

Former striker Wright earned the ultimate Hibernian accolade after supporters voted him their favourite player of the 1990s.

A lifelong supporter of the club, he scored 76 goals for the club in six years and helped Hibernian to win the Skol Cup in 1991.

The lad from Greendykes wore the green with distinction and made an immediate impact after securing a dream move from Dundee in the summer of 1991.

He proceeded to score in every round of the Skol Cup - including the winner against Rangers in the semi-final - before contributing the decisive second goal against Dunfermline in the Final; it was the club's first major trophy in 19 years.

Scottish FA South East regional manager David Drummond said: “Having Keith as part of the team in the South East is fantastic.  He brings so much experience to the region, both as a player and coach and is always willing to share this with others. 

“His commitment, knowledge and passion for the game is second to none and to have someone with Keith's background working alongside you, makes everyone's job so much easier to do.”

A Hibernian club spokesman said: “Everybody connected with Hibernian would like to congratulate Keith on being inducted into the Hall of Fame and for his impeccable service to the club.”

Keith said: “I was proud and honoured to be inducted into the Hibs Hall of Fame.

“To have my name along side such names as Pat Stanton, Lawrie Reilly and my hero Jim O Rourke is unbelievable.

“I would like to thank my dad who supported me throughout my career, he is recovering from a major operation and this news really gave him a boost.”
