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
Further apologies were received
from Andrew Murray, Mike Inglis, Mike Prior, David Drysdale and Stuart
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.
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."
Details had been sent out to all
members in advance and there was no questions asked on the accounts. Any
further issues please contact Andrew direct for information.
