London Hibs AGM

As a number of the clubís committee members were unable to make it to the AGM scheduled for Saturday 10th June, it was necessary to postpone this meeting until Saturday 24th June. Our apologies if this caused anyone any problems, but we felt that it was important that the committee were at the meeting to let members know what was planned for the new season. The AGM will be held in the William Wallace pub and will start at 2.30pm so hopefully there will be a good attendance to take advantage of the traditional free pint paid for by the clubs treasurer.

The schedule for the day will be to meet in the pub from 2pm onwards for a couple of drinks. The meeting will then commence at around 2.30pm and will cover the following topics:

  •         Summary of the last 12 months activities at the club

  •         Review of the clubís finances

  •         Review of committee members for the 1999/2000 season

  •         London Hibs Player of the Year for last season

  •         Plans for the new season

  •         AOB

  •         Hibs quiz

It is not too late for you to put your name forward for one of the committee posts so if you are interested in taking on the responsibility for one of the following; Chairman, Deputy Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, Fanzine Editor, Entertainment, Travel or Hibs Liaison, then please let either Brian Rogan or myself know before the meeting.  The current committee has been in place for a number of years now and would be more than happy to stand down if someone else fancied running with things for a year or two.

2 posts that will certainly be vacant next season will be Club Secretary and Fanzine editor, as it is my intention to stand down at the AGM.  With so many new members having joined the club over the last few years, it is hoped that one of them will put their name forward for these roles to bring some fresh faces and ideas to the committee.  If required, I will be more than happy to work with the new club secretary to help him/her find their feet.

Champions Ball

The date for the football teams Champions Ball has changed to Saturday 29th July and will take place at the Dukes Meadows Golf Club in Chiswick from 7pm to 2am.  Tickets will cost £25 a head and will include a sit down Dinner, disco and much, much more.  All profits from the evening will go towards purchasing new Hibs strips for the new APFSCIL Champions next season.

If you would like to purchase a ticket or two for what will without doubt be a fantastic evening, then please contact Kevin Robertson.

Nominations for your Player of the Year

If you have not already submitted your nomination for the London Hibs Player of the Year then can you please  do so before Saturday 24th June by  e-mailing your vote to londonhibs@aol.com. The winner will be announced at the AGM on Saturday 24th June with the presentation taking place in Edinburgh in November/December.
