Hi this isn't a football related question but did you have a sister called Valerie. If you did I was at school with her
I knew Ken through my job as a football journalist for The Sunday Mirror and Today. What made it special for me was that I'm a lifelong Wolves fan, and I remember meeting Ken outside Villa Park the day we lost an FA Cup semi-final to Arsenal 2-0. Most players would decline, but Ken stopped for a chat. Memorably, he answered the dressing room door at Wembley in 1980 after we'd beaten Forest 1-0 in the League Cup final. All the other journos' had elected to see Brian Clough who, as usual, was smart-arse and rude. Ken opened the door, invited me in and I enjoyed a few plastic cups of bubbly plus priceless interviews with five players. The man was a great footballer who deserved to play for England.
I remember as a young lad watching Kenny as a 19 year old or so, play cricket in the very respectable Bradford League for Laisterdyke C.C. where my dad used to work behind the bar in the club house.

My son broke his leg when he was 13. We were and still are Cardiff City supporters. One day my son came home from school at lunch time the phone rang I answered the phone a male voice asked to speak to my son. I gave the phone to my son he was speechless it was Kenny Hibbitt. He gave him words of encouragement and told him that before he sat in the dugouts he would take his cap off to him. He must of done this for about 10 matches. In our eyes a great human being.
John Aspley says hello, you used to play him in County golf 35 years ago
I ran a development centre in Monmouth for Cardiff city when Kenny was manager. He came to the centre sometimes after working with the first team at Cardiff and was always very interested in the development of youth players coming through for the club. He was a inspiration to all our Trainees. He is a top man and was a fantastic player.
Thanks Kenny. Julian & Jeff.
