London Hibs March 1999 Update

 

Back where we belong

After 10 long months of suffering on our great adventure into the 1ST Division the boys are back where they belong in the Premier league, and hopefully over the first major hurdle to making Hibernian FC a real force in Scottish football once again. Whilst this season will undoubtedly go down as a black period in the history books of the club, the manner in which we have bounced back is a real credit to the players, the manager, the Board and of course the supporters. Let’s hope that we have learnt some harsh lessons over the last 2 years and that we never find ourselves in this situation again.

March Meeting

A fairly healthy attendance at the March gathering with 16 members coming along to talk all night about the Cabbage. Apologies were received from David Smith, Stuart Donald, Grant Ramsay and John Smith who for various reasons were unable to attend.

Group Travel to Edinburgh

You are reminded that the club has organised a trip to Edinburgh for the penultimate home game against Morton on Saturday 24th April. To date we have 15 members confirmed on the trip, which is being co-ordinated, by Alex Lindsay and Tony Connor but if you are thinking about going up and would like further information on the arrangements, then you should contact Alex  or Tony

For those members travelling up for the game please be aware that you are invited to the Almond Suite Player of the Year Presentation, which will take place in the evening at Easter Road starting at 7.30pm. Tickets will cost 10 each and there will be a whole host of current Hibs players and ex Hibs legends to mingle with. If you would like a ticket for this function then can you please let me know by Friday 16th April at the latest as I will be speaking with the guys who are organising the evening..

Annual General Meeting

I appreciate that it is still a couple of months away, but can you please note that the club’s AGM will take place in the Holyrood on Saturday 19 June starting at 4pm. As the AGM is the only meeting in the season we hold on a Saturday, it is a great opportunity for those of you who are normally unable to attend the midweek get-togethers to come along and meet other members.

One of the main items on the agenda at our AGMs is to confirm committee members for the new season, so if you are interested in putting your name forward for one of the posts, or if you would like to nominate someone else, then can you please let me know in advance of the AGM.

I am fairly confident that the current committee is more than happy to continue with their responsibilities into the new season, but as most of us have been in the roles for a few years, we would actively encourage new faces onto the committee, so don’t feel that you will be upsetting anyone by volunteering your services. Over the last 12 months we have had around 18 new members join our ranks so maybe one of the new guys feel that they could add a little something to the success of the club.

As an extra incentive to come along to the meeting we are hoping to have a video of some old Hibs footage from the 50s, 60s and 70s, which was shown recently at a charity function at Easter Road.

The current committee is as follows:

Chairman: Brian Rogan

Deputy Chairman: Stuart Donald

Club Secretary: Mike McSherry

Club Treasurer: Andrew Murray

Fanzine: Mike McSherry

APFSCIL: Grant Ramsay

Hibs Liaison: Tony Connor

Football Team: Kevin Robertson

Player of the Year

As the season is almost over, can you start giving some thought to your nomination for this season’s Player of the Year. The winner will be announced at the AGM, but if you could please let me have your vote I will ensure that it is counted. You are requested to select your first, second and third choice players. 5 Points will be allocated to your 1st choice, 3 points to your 2nd choice and 1 point to your 3rd choice. Can you please complete the attached form before returning it to the address above or phone/e-mail me with your nominations.

Season Tickets

Tickets are still available for the St Mirren game on Saturday 17th April so if any member is planning to be in Edinburgh that weekend and would like to use them, then they should give me a call on the above number.

Fanzine

To ensure that we have our 2nd fanzine for the season on sale before the Morton game, can I remind you all that the deadline for submitting articles for the next issue is Tuesday 13 April. As I will be unable to make the April meeting, can you please send your contributions to me at the above address or by e-mail to Londonhibs@aol.com.
