||Wardie, Royal High
|First Hibs match
||Leeds early 70s we
gubbed them 0-0, lost 5-4 on penalties I think Pat Stanton missed the penalty and
Billy Bremner scored the 5th for Leeds was in the old standing area in
the main stand. I think the above is right it was a long time ago. Come to think of
it, my father took me to Parkhead for a Hibs match in the 60s. Finished 1-1.
Cant remember anything else
|How long a member of London Hibs
||2-3 years??? Cant remember
you must have the details. Never been to a meeting though (football on a Tuesday)
|How did you find out about London Hibs
||Got talking to a member (cant
remember who) at Easter Road. Also used to work with Dave MacBain.
|Favourite all time Hibs Player
..Pat Stanton (despite that
penalty miss). I was gutted I couldnt make the Burns Supper.
|Most memorable Game
||Souness getting sent off (I know it should
be on of the League Cup finals, but that was THE most sublime moment I have ever seen in
any football match).
|How often do you get to games
||Virtually never. I took my wife to her
first ever game, against Kilmarnock last season. Lost 1-0 in the worst game of football
Ive ever seen (and Ive seen lots of bad ones). Embarrassingly, I have to admit
that was the first time I had been to Easter Road since the new stands were built. I never
was the kind of supporter who went every week anyway.
|When did you leave Scotland? (If
|Why do you live in the South?
|Favourite English team
||Dont really have one. For the first
2 years down here I went to 2 games a week in and around London. At a push Id have
to say West Ham as I lived out that way for a while.
|Lowest moment following Hibs?
||Unfortunately, there seems to have been
more lows than highs. Its a toss up between the merger talks and relegation coupled
with Hearts winning the cup last season
|Best Hibs goal?
||Thats a hard one
seen so few!!!! The ones that stick in the mind are probably the more unusual ones. I seem
to remember a match against Motherwell where we had 2 successive shots hitting the bar
with Steve Archibald eventually getting it in at the 3rd attempt. My memory may be playing
tricks on me again.
|What is the best thing about being a
||Difficult to say. I think with our recent
record, the negative aspects of being a Hibs supporter come to mind more easily than the
positive ones. I suppose it has to be the history of the club
.its one thing that can
never be taken away. Weve led the way in many things
other clubs have followed
and now left us miles behind.
|Proudest moment following Hibs?
||The league cup win. I found the final a
bit flat because wed already done the hard work in the semis and Dunfermline
|How did you become a Hibby?
||Location. Family moved to Inverleith when
I was 1, so I just supported the local team
..and we were a good team in those days.
There was no family ties to the club my father was from Paisley and didnt
really follow football, and my brother is a Rangers supporter!!!!.
