Brian Rogan, our Chairman, then introduced Eddie Turnbull to the audience,

Eddie scored for Hibs, especially against the likes of Spurs and Man Utd!

entertained us for nearly 10 minutes with stories from the past and had
some kind words to say about the club. He then presented the club with a
framed set of programmes from his playing days.
