In Paul’s segment, we caught up with his wife, Danielle Hanlon who told her story of what Paul is like off the pitch and as a family man. Whilst Hutchinson Vale Coach Tam Smith gave an insight into Hanlon’s early football days and his exemplary attitude from a young age.

“Paul was my captain at Hutchie from seven-a-side all the way through,” Smith recalls.

“It was an easy decision for me to make because of the way he conducted himself – he was always early, he had great relationships with all his peers, he was well thought of and looked up to.

“His boots were always clean, he had a lot of good habits which were all vital for players who are wanting to move onto the next level.”


Joelle’s chapter includes a touching tribute from team-mate Siobhan Hunter – who has shared the pitch with Joelle since 2009 – explaining how much of an influence she has been on inspiring the next generation. Siobhan said:

“Any young player looking at her cannot fail to be impressed because she is a good player, an even better person and a fantastic leader.

“She’s everything you would want in a captain, and it means the world to her wearing that armband.”

We also hear from Joelle’s father Alan, and various former coaches discussing Joelle’s historic career through the ages.

“When you’ve got the experience that Lewy has, as a manager you know you’ll get a solid performance, and that was certainly the way he performed.

“It was great to see him get that much coveted Scotland cap.”

Lewy also shares with us his all-time Hibs starting XI!
