Trying to answer a quiz question by reading through the names of every team in the English Leagues, I came across this team.

http://www.leamingtonhibs.com/

Anybody know their story, the website is short on history. Maybe this is our way into the premiership?

maybe this could attract the likes of Bill Gates to invest on the back of this.

The chance of premiership football might sway him. :pray:

Just had a look at the website and they do wear proper Hibs style strips, Green with White sleeves.

Gotta be more than just a coincidence.

Their club badge looks like something that you would see on a real ale tap. Mind you, a few years back, our club badge looked like a becks beer bottle label.

We all share the same roots, Hibernian being the roman name for Ireland. Unfortunately mission to dominate the english leagues taking a little longer than expected, any help in breeding out the locals more than welcome !:wink:

Now there's a proposition:cool2: Just as well you put the :wink: smiley on :greengrin

Other than the Hibernian/Ireland link are there any links between your Club and the famous Edinburgh Hibees?

Not been with the club long enough to know the
ins and outs but know a man that undoubtedly does who I can ask. Like Hibernian FC, the 'Hibernian' connection is an Irish one, the founder family originating from Cork with connections to Cork Hibernian FC, 971 League of Ireland Champions.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cork_Hibernians_F.C.

Leamington Hibernian started up around the time Cork Hibernian folded.Our Club is currently the biggest in the area, significantly larger in depth than surrounding clubs with grounds and facilities. Generation thing I guess. Kit colours, main directive being green and white tops, white shorts and gold socks. Historically the teams have played in green shorts/socks and green hoops in the early days.

Love the thread, would appreciate a call if Easter Road ever goes on the market :-) . I suppose a charity match against a Hibs vets or supporters XI would be out of the question?

Hi Paul

Sounds good to me. Let you know how i get on this end. We have no ground but do have good standard pitches that we can hire/beg/steal or borrow or we can come to you if you have the same. We have lots of Junior teams who would love to come up to Edinburgh to also get a game, so if you know of any teams that would be interested in playing under 10s,11s,and 13s. We are of a fair standard.

It's a Netherlands shibboleth for Germans. I don't care about the fiver, but the follow-up intrigues me.

[Q] From Lee Becker: Whatís the meaning and origin of on tenterhooks?

[A] Itís been so long since anyone has seen either a tenter, or the hooks on one, that the word and the idea behind it are now quite mysterious, so much so that it sometimes appears as on tenderhooks, which sounds as though it ought to make more sense. But at one time, the phrase on tenterhooks would have evoked an image that was immediately understandable.

Yer right fatboy a real rib tickler. :faf:
