London Hibs Burns Night Supper 2000


London Hibs Annual Burns Night Supper was held on Saturday 22nd January 2000 at the Kavanagh's Pub, Old Brompton Road.

Our special guest this year was former Famous Five player and manager of Hibs Eddie Turnbull.

The evening kicked off with the haggis being carried in by Rose McEwan accompanied by the traditional piper. Stuart Donald, our vice chairman then made the (not so) traditional address to the haggis, and you can

Brian Rogan, our Chairman, then introduced Eddie Turnbull to the audience, giving him a glowing tribute which included reminding us of the many goals Eddie scored for Hibs, especially against the likes of Spurs and Man Utd!

Eddie then 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.
