|First Hibs match
||Cannot remember but it was
in the 1960's when I must have been 4 or 5 years old. A match
against Cowdenbeath rings a distant bell
|How long a member of London Hibs
founding member. Attended the
first meeting in 1990.
|How did you find out about London Hibs
given a flyer by Kevin Robertson in
a pub in Watford before a pre-season friendly, which stated he was trying
to establish a London Hibs supporters club.
|Favourite all time Hibs Player
Stanton. You always felt
confident something good was going to happen as he brought the ball out of
|Most memorable Game
never forget the League Cup final in 1972.
|How often do you get to games
or 3 times a year.
|When did you leave Scotland? (If
for a one year position in London with the Royal Bank of Scotland.
Never made it back.
|Why do you live in the South?
family, there is a summer.
|Favourite English team
Athletic. Go to as many games
as I can in a season. Confident
they will stay in the Premiership this time.
|Lowest moment following Hibs?
defeat by Rangers at Ibrox on a freezing cold day in December 95 or
96. Not pleasant sitting there 7-0 down with over 40,000 Huns singing the
sash. There was a perverse
pleasure however of knowing you were still supporting your team and you
would rather be losing 7-0 than be a bigotted Hun.
Also being telephoned at a hotel, while on a business trip, to be
told Wallace Mercer had made a takeover bid for Hibs.
I couldnít sleep that night.
|Best Hibs goal?
many to pick one. However, I
have vivid memory of Joe Harper hitting a 25 yard shot down the slope at
Easter Road in the 1970ís to beat Hearts 1-0.
|What is the best thing about being a
feeling of belonging to a great club.
|Proudest moment following Hibs?
I allowed three. Going back to school after the Christmas holidays in 1973
aged 11 and giving the Jambos stick about their 7-0 gubbing.
Watching the hundreds of Hibs buses bouncing along Princess Street
after the Skol Cup win in 1991. Edinburgh belonged to Hibees that night.
Also taking my 5 year old son to his first Hibs match in 1999 and
we beat Dundee 5-2.
|How did you become a Hibby?
and two older brothers were Hibees (although mother claims to support
Hearts). My brothers used to
compete over who would take me to Easter Road in the 1960ís.
Father came to Edinburgh from Inverness after the war.
He used to go to Tynecastle one week and Easter Road the next, but
he soon realised which was the better club.
