    A name that seemed to be a constant at Hibs all through my early years following the club, he sounded like a gentleman and from what I'm reading it looks like he was. RIP Cecil.

    His name was synonymous with Hibs when I was a boy, though I didn't really have much idea about what a Club Secretary actually did. Can't even remember what he looked like, just his distinctive name, I wonder what age he was? In my young mind he was already an old man 40 years ago, but was probably considerably younger, probably younger than I am now!

    Balding and bespectacled was my memory of him and this pic from 1978 (courtesy of Google search) confirms this.

    Great servant to the club over many years. RIP Cecil.

    Does look vaguely familiar, apparently he was 84, so same age as me currently; 47, in that photo from 1981.
    RIP Cecil.
