The Lewis Stevenson Testimonial Committee are delighted to confirm arrangements for the first of two exciting events.
A Testimonial Dinner has been arranged for Saturday, September 3 at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange – with tickets available now.
Hosted by Grant Stott, the evening’s entertainment will be headlined by a performance from two of Lewis’s biggest fans – The Proclaimers, appearing with their band for an hour long set

For more information on the dinner, and to keep up to date with news of the follow-up Testimonial Match, log on to www.lewisstevensontestimonial.org
Lewis Stevenson is, quite simply, a Hibernian legend. It’s hoped everyone in the extended green and white family will join together to celebrate the contribution of someone who truly is One of Our Own.

“It is an honour and privilege to be Chairman of Lewis’s Testimonial Committee. Lewis is a great example of what can be achieved through hard work and dedication. He has now played over 300 games under nine different managers. He is the only Hibernian player to have won the League Cup and Scottish Cup, which is a magnificent achievement. Lewis is a worthy recipient of a Testimonial. It is Lewis’s wish to donate half of the proceeds to worthy causes and they will strike a chord with everyone connected with the Hibernian family. The Jenni and David Paul Memorial Fund supports cardiac risk in the young, while Leith Links was a group set up by Hibs supporters to ensure more children can attend games at Easter Road.”
Graeme Cadger, Chairman, Lewis Stevenson Testimonial Committee

“We are honoured and proud to be playing at Lewis’s Testimonial Dinner. Lewis has been a fantastic servant to the club and this is richly deserved. We hope to see as many Hibees there as possible.”
Craig and Charlie Reid, The Proclaimers

“We are extremely grateful to Lewis for this gracious and generous contribution to The Jenni and David Paul Memorial Fund. The memorial fund was set up in memory of our two beautiful children, to support the charity CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young). Their mission is to ‘prevent all young, sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research, and to support affected families. Our heartfelt thanks go to Lewis for his benevolence, which will ensure continuation of the great work the charity does to prevent the sudden death of 12 fit and healthy young adults every week from undiagnosed heart conditions in the UK.”
Gordon and Helen Paul (for more information on CRY see www.c-r-y.org.uk)

“It is a measure of the man that he has pledged a donation to Leith Links – the fund set up to ensure more children can attend games at Easter Road – from the activities being arranged. This will ensure a lasting legacy, from a player who has spent his whole career at Hibs, and continue the feel-good factor that surrounds our great club. It is a marvellous gesture from a much-respected member of the Hibs family.”
Susan Linn (for more information on Leith Links see www.leithlinks4kids.com)

I'm on holiday for the dinner so won't be able to attend but Lewis deserves this.

The fact he has asked for half the proceeds to go to charity is 'Hibs class'. I hope both this event and what follows gets the support Lewis deserves.

The first time in a long time that a player has deserved this accolade...and typical of the man that he take the opportunity to donate to others.
Lewis I truly Hibs class and continues to be a loyal servant and son of Hibernian FC

Thank you Lewis !

I am very please to be on the Testimonial committee, and as has been said, Lewis is a very deserving recipient of a testimonial year. Lewis has asked us to limit the year to be only two events, the Gala Dinner and a Match, arrangements for the match are still on-going however the gala Dinner preparations are well under way. There are three packages available, Sponsors, VIP and Priemium. The table will be sold in groups of 10 however there will also be shared tables for individuals. Over and above the Proclaimers performing, both the Scottish and League cups will be on display (only fitting as Lewis is the only Hibs player to have ever lifted both). We will also be some very special gifts for those attending the dinner.
There will also be some tremendous auction items, (some Scottish Cup related), these will be detailed later on the Testimonial website.
For more information and for booking please visit the website www.lewisstevensontestimonial.org you can also follow the testimonial Twitter account @lewysgottwo
Hope to see as many of you can make it on the 3rd.

Incredible as it sounds, given there are so many others in the same position, I will also be away in Italy that week or most likely would have went

Congratulations Lewis, not least on your achievements as a Hibs player over the years, nor on your class in donating a substantial part of the proceeds to Charity, but in particular on choosing the two charities you have, which along with Dnipro Kids are charities resonant to a great many Hibs supporters.

The term Legend gets bandied about a lot, but if ever there was a modern day player to get Hibs and what playing for us means it is Lewis, a bona fide Hibs Legend.

Before the Cup Final, Lewis was already a Hibernian Legend in my eyes. Since that day in May his importance to the club has rocketed into the stratosphere.

The clubs poor performance over the last 10 years has, to an extent, blurred what Lewis has achieved in his career both on a personal level and for the club.

Having now become the only player to win both national trophies in this clubs history, especially by playing key roles in each, he is as important to this club as Baker, Stanton and the Famous Five ever were!

Though the famous five will all have more winners medals than him.

In terms of achievements, Lewis is up there with the all time greats at this club. In fact, many players have one winners medal, several have league winners medals, nobody in our club history has both league and Scottish Cup winners medals. One of a kind and not just that a one club man.

He admits himself that there are players before who are technically much better than him but I'll tell you what; along with his achievements you won't find another player who's given as much to the cause as consistently as much as Lewis.

This testimonial is so, so well deserved.

All the torment we have endured LS was there along side us. Slated him myself on many occasions but he stuck at it and came out the other side. Scottish Cup Winner with the Club many said would never win the thing. Thanks LS and you deserve your testimonial year and I will be at the Dinner and the game etc as he may not be the greatest player but I do admire a player who really has persevered

Charity bet?

Mr White
09-07-2016, 09:33 PM
He played against hearts and was given a medal.

If you say so. I was under the impression it was match day squads in the final only that received medals unless the winning club go out their way to make sure a former player who contributed in an earlier round gets one. Given Thomson's relationship with the manager and the way he left I would have thought that unlikely.

Even if he does own the 2 medals without even making the bench in either final (and you seem pretty sure he does) I don't think it comes close to Stevenson's achievement tbh.

Silent Boatman

Given a medal doesn't count,Lewis is the only player to have won both. Being given and accepting a medal you never won is laughable.

There's no point worrying about how to compare Lewis Stevenson with the likes of the Famous Five or Turnbull's Tornadoes. Hibs are in a very different place, and football is in a very different place, especially post-Bosman.

If you take Bosman as a starting point in time, then we've seen Hibs relegated twice and we've seen Hibs win two trophies, with Lewis playing a role in both victories. Perhaps more pertinent, he's been a consistent pick through several managers and we can point to improvement as he's grown older.

There's a good chance he could play out his career with us, even though he's got several seasons yet to come. That would take him into the top ten for appearances at Hibs. Given that the current top ten is a couple of Tornadoes, a few of the Five and some players who were born in the nineteenth century, then yes, very much, he would become a Hibs great for me.

Not a legend in the style of a Gordon Smith but having achieved a little bit more than those you would describe as good or great servants of the club, like Gordon Hunter for example (who alternatively can argue the case for a bit of cult status - goal against the yams and tackle on Colquhoun as evidence :greengrin)

It is not possible to make extra medals.

I hope we never see KT back at our club again. A huffy disrespectful wee nobody who lucked out at being in the right team at the right time and was far too vocal when he left the first time.

The fact that Tranent were the team he's gone to says a lot.

Ooooh I know KT.

Anyway the fact remains only Lewis has won both trophies with Hibs......next.

He played as many games as Lewis in the league cup, he has both medals. Both are legends, like it or not.

:agree:

Anyone who played any part in our cup run last season falls into that category...and KT certainly did that.

I don't know KT but I'm aware he has a couple of fanboys on this forum.......

For what it's worth, he was my favourite of his generation when they came through.

I'm sorry injury impacted on his career and sorry he was so painfully one-sided when he came back to us the first time.

As posted earlier, this thread is about Lewis.

I'd love to see the 07-16 match-up.

Or a Raith/Barca dreamteam :greengrin

Failing that, a mash-up of the Killie and Huns teams that Lewis defeated to win his SC/LC medals :thumbsup:

The only way KT would have a Scottish Cup winning medal with Hibs is if another player gave it to him. The only ones who got medals were the team that played,the subs and Alan Stubbs. There were no more made or presented. Source: Leeann Dempster.

I can understand the rule regarding the presentation at the final, but it is unfair not to have additional medals for those players who actually played during the cup run.

For example, a player could have played a prominent role in every round but then missed the final through injury and would not receive a medal as a result. Conversely, his replacement who only sat on the bench for the final and wasn't in the squad for any other game, would receive a medal.

It's also disappointing that the rest of the coaching staff miss out.

The Committee advise that Lewis's Testimonial Gala Dinner is now a complete SELL OUT

For those who have registered their interest in booking places we will reply to all emails by Sunday 17 July 2015 advising if your application has been successful or not. We will not be accepting any more notes of interest as we have a sufficient waiting list should any confirmed bookings withdraw. It shows the high esteem Lewis is held in by the Hibernian supporters as we only announced the Gala Dinner last Friday. We apologise to all those who have been unable to obtain tickets but hope everyone understands our position of selling on a first come first served basis.

My last two attempts have bounced back as "undeliverable".

He has both medals because he won both Cups with Rangers.

I agree with you there he has been such an easy target for our negative supporters in every way possible.

We really dont know the ins and outs of how he was treated during the John Collins regime. All we heard from the Daily Ranger where quotes supposedly coming from his mouth which may have been greatly exaggerated by the time they reached print?

The second time around Butcher was no man manager and let him and a few others go all at once. His third short spell was only to have been for a year. He was over the moon at the club winning the cup and was delighted for the boys that played.

The poster expressed his views on the his feelings for him but these are not the views of everyone on here.
The guy deserves a break from tongue lashings on here. He has made a BIG decision to leave full time professional football where he was earning a good wage. He is concentrating on doing his badges to get a job as a coach and open his own football school of excellence.

He should be admired for making such a decision and given all our respect and encouragement for the future!

AND anyway this is a post about Lewis how on earth did we get to talking about Kevin?
