London Hibs AGM 2002 Newsletter

28th June 2003

The AGM on Saturday 22nd June was opened with chairman Brian Rogan welcoming and congratulating David and the football team for all their efforts on winning the league and doing well to get to the cup final. This was the smallest attendance on record for an AGM. Please make every effort to continue supporting the club, at the moment we are going through one of those phases where the same small group of people is doing all the work. Your attendance at meetings & other social functions would be very much appreciated.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Stuart Dickson, Mike McSherry and Morton Love who all recently lost close relatives.

Further apologies were received from Andrew Murray, Mike Inglis, Mike Prior, David Drysdale and Stuart Donald.

As there were no nominations from the membership, there have been no changes to the committee.

We will continue with the 4 season tickets and as per usual Tony Connor will look after them and information on any tickets for other games. As per usual Alex will be the contact to help with travel to the games. We will also continue to sponsor one of the players shirts. As London Hibs sponsored Gary O'Connor's shirt last year, the club decided to donate it to the London Hibs football team who will auction it to raise operating funds for the team next season. Details coming soon.

Football Team.

David Drysdale who unfortunately could not make the meeting sent in this report:

"I would like to say on behalf of the football team a big thank you to everyone who contributed to making the Cup Final such a great day out. It was the most successful final the APFSCIL League have held - there was a crowd of about 300 and the effort both teams and sets of supporters put in made it a special occasion with a superb atmosphere.

The APFSCIL League committee at their AGM made a point of thanking both Hibs and Aberdeen for all their work. In particular we did much to raise the profile of the two clubs and the League itself through a healthy amount of publicity - as well as getting the backing of a few notables including Arsenal FC and Mike Watson, Scotland's Minister for Sport. Beverly Bailey (an honorary Hibby) gets all the praise for this effort - she spent a number of days putting out press releases and making calls on behalf of London Hibs...

Of course, with all that support and publicity it would have been nice to have actually won the Cup... next season, boys. Next season... I'd also like to say thanks to Alex Lindsay who drove up to Edinburgh especially to pick up a new kit from Easter Road. Thanks to Alex, we are now the proud owners of a beautiful away strip courtesy of Malcolm McPherson and some of the marketing staff at Hibs. We've also picked up a little sponsorship which will be used to pay for a better pitch next season. All in all our aim is to improve the squad, the quality of the football and the league (we're as always on the hunt for talented new Hibbies for the team - so if you have any up your sleeve get them to give me a call or drop me a line)... and of course give ourselves many more big days out and some Cup winning performances to shout about."
