Why would Hibs agree to this, stupid KO time for fans wanting to go down to watch the game, was at that ground last season and it is a nightmare drive, was looking forward to a pre season friendly down South but will be giving this one a miss due to the KO time.

You can't get down on the Sunday by train in time for kick off so unless you're driving you'd have to stay over on the Saturday night. 12:30 ko is rubbish and I think this is purely to stop fans getting bevvied before it.

Haven't been in about 4 years but the Brooklands is on the Meole Brace roundabout about 5-10 mins walk to the ground, it's a bar/restaurant that is normally busy before match day. If you have a designated driver they can park there for £5 too.

Sunday 31st July will see SPL side visit
SPFL side and Scottish Cup holders Hibs will be the visitors to the Greenhous Meadow for Micky Mellon’s sides’ final game of pre-season.

It will give Town a good test as they prepare for the Sky Bet League 1 kick-off season and it will coincide with the club’s annual Open Day.

Ticket prices have been kept low to help encourage as many young supporters to come along to the game and also to take part in the Open Day.

There are connections between the clubs with Ryan McGivern and Gary Deegan having played for Hibs, who currently have one Grant Holt in their ranks.

Town CEO Brian Caldwell is pleased to have finally confirmed the opposition for the final weekend of pre-season.

“We are delighted that Hibs have agreed to the game and it will be good to have the Scottish Cup holders at the Greenhous Meadow”, said Brian.

“We did have some issues getting a game on the Sunday to coincide with the open day but we have got one.

“I think it will be the first time that Hibs have visited the Greenhous Meadow and we look forward to welcoming them on Sunday 31st July.

“It will be a 12:30pm kick-off and for the open day there will be activity before the game and plenty more afterwards.

“Jamie and his team in the community have a full list of events over the day and we will be announcing those shortly.”

It’s taken Town a while to confirm the final game but it is one that Micky Mellon’s side is looking forward to. The test that Hibs will pose ahead of the start of the season should be a good one for Town.

“Micky's delighted that we have got Hibs as he wanted a good test especially in the final pre season match and he knows that they are a good footballing side”, added Brian.

“It will be a good test for the players in the lead up to the important game at home to MK Dons on the first day of the season and hopefully we can encourage as many local people along for the match and Open Day.

“Hibs are a good strong team and a big club in Scotland so it will be a hard one for the team.”

Ticket Prices for the game have been set at:-
Adults - £10
Concessions - £5
U18s - £1

Tickets will go on sale soon.

On a side, not that you can read too much into pre season results but they lost 4-0 at home to Cardiff yesterday.

Looking forward to a relatively short hop to Shrewsbury from Leamington.
Pushbike to Tile Hill ( Coventry) , then train via Brum International to Shewsbury,
arrive 11.09 & depart back 15.33, arriving back home about 6 ish. Not as mad
as it seems so as can have a drink as detailed below & £14.90 return.
Time for a quick bevvy in the Brooklands first, as opens at 11 am on a
Sunday & can personally recommend The Coach & Horses, Swan Hill, in town
after the match as the quintissential real ale type pub, with food. As myself and
the good lady visited there last October on a day out.
Next match after this due to work commitments etc is September 17th
v Ayr . On the 7.15 via Birmingham arriving 12.22 at Waverley & return on 18.52
getting back in Leamington 00.22
Double edge sword if train is late back as will get delay compensation. Again !
Has only cost £30.75 return , on an advance booking split ticket via Lancaster .

On a Sunday the vast majority of pubs in Shrewsbury will open at 12.

Montgomerys Tower is a Spoons pub in the town centre that will be open early and I think the Salopian Bar (good if you're into ale and bottled beers from all over the place) opens at 11.

The new ground is on the outskirts of Shrewsbury so bear that in mind. There is a pub fairly near the ground, think its called the Charles Darwin. Its pretty moderate but from memory has a decent size carpark the landlord will let you leave your car or minibus in.

Will be making the relatively short trip up from Cheltenham with my Son - his first game since the cup win, mine since Brondby at home where I was really impressed with our high tempo tactics. Looking forward to seeing them in the Midlands as I reckon it will be the possible starting XI for next weekend, hopefully with a new GK and maybe Henderson (delivers) although looking less likely it will be in time.

wonder how many Hibees will be there Sunday? Might get there early just in case! :flag:

I'm guessing first team, given it's over a week since our last game and almost a week until the next. Full dress rehearsal. I don't know anything about Shrewsbury (apart from their stadium is next to a river, which isn't really relevant!), but I think we'll be firing on all cylinders and will win comfortably.

I see Skybet have priced up tomorrows match and we're 7/4 to win.

That's what i was thinking. Shrewsbury are favourites but if it's as close to a full strength Hibs team, one that's already beaten Bronby and Birmingham, that's worth a punt

I'm guessing first team, given it's over a week since our last game and almost a week until the next. Full dress rehearsal. I don't know anything about Shrewsbury (apart from their stadium is next to a river, which isn't really relevant!), but I think we'll be firing on all cylinders and will win comfortably.

Shrew beat Birmingham also. Expect them to be a good test. A draw for me.

Great to hear the passion getting passed on down to the next generation. What a great opportunity to get the kids in and rightly proud of their team getting into winning habits. It's been poor fare for the kids until recently. Promotion aside this is probably the next biggest opportunity Hibs must seize.

Mcgeoch and Bartley not in squad Presume being saved for Falkirk game if both have minor tweaks
But it highlights why we need Henderson back or someone else in as we lnow from last season that both these players can be prone to injury
Not so long ago Dylan said he was over his injuries but if we are having to manage tweaks this early in season its a bit of a worry for me as he is a key player
Gives Martin a chance to stake a claim v Falkirk though

As an annual season ticket holder for hibs TV I did expect an email or something on the official site . After all the complaints about Hibs TV not showing our European ties , It seems they still haven't learnt anything about communication with us. I guess its not on?

As good a pre season as we've had for some time ... banged in loads of goals against decent opposition, conceded very little and won away in Europe against a team folk have actually heard of, not only that, but we have played well too.

Europe aside you can never be positive that a good pre season will lead to a good league campaign, but it has to be said the signs are good .... I still think Falkirk away will be a tough game for us though, not least because its on a surface we haven't played on since last season. I presume Falkirk's go to attacking move is still the long throw, so we have to be ready for that ... as we proved last season and England proved in the Euros, you have to stop their first man winning the ball but be ready if he does.

Whoever was to blame for us going into a season thinking that James Collins and Rowan Vine, supplied by Paul Cairney and Alex Harris (with no backup in case they got injured, which they both did) is the main culprit for us finding ourselves facing a third season out of the top flight.

All things said, the defence wasn't that bad. Of them all, Jordon Forster probably made the most mistakes that cost us points.

It was our lack of goals that got us relegated.

Danny f*****g Haynes and the rest of them.

Nelson was another who was brilliant when he started. Simply put Butcher decimated our team.

As good a pre season as we've had for some time ... banged in loads of goals against decent opposition, conceded very little and won away in Europe against a team folk have actually heard of, not only that, but we have played well too.

Europe aside you can never be positive that a good pre season will lead to a good league campaign, but it has to be said the signs are good .... I still think Falkirk away will be a tough game for us though, not least because its on a surface we haven't played on since last season. I presume Falkirk's go to attacking move is still the long throw, so we have to be ready for that ... as we proved last season and England proved in the Euros, you have to stop their first man winning the ball but be ready if he does.

I think that in some ways our lack of transfer activity will work to our advantage.

Holt and Laidlaw are the only players bedding into our team and they have spent the entire pre-season with the squad.

Some of our rivals have made sweeping changes, as we have in recent years.

I'm pleased with pre-season and I am very confident we have what it takes.

It was Heffernan and Collins and the midfield was Craig, Thomson, Taiwo and Robertson which was actually a solid hard working midfield.

Signs are encouraging to say the least - when u think at least 3 new players will be added to this squad by end of August - good times ahead I'm very hopeful

Heffernan was often injured. How many did he score for us? Decent player at Killie, didn't work out at all for him with us.

It's a solid, hard-working midfield all right but where'e the creativity? Who's going to score or carve out a chance? All four are sitting midfielders (ok, maybe you could do something more with Craig further forward) and they'll get nowhere relying on those 4 to create goals. Full-backs - are Maybury and McGivern going to create?

I'm sure we've been over this before. We were 5th but it was early in the season and we'd been terrible in some of the games (even games we'd won). Fenlon knew he'd lost the dressing room, he'd put a pile of crap together and he knew the writing was on the wall.

That summer's transfer window is the most destructive we've ever had as a club.

There is literally no chance we'd have been relegated that season. Collins and Heff were forging a partnership, Craig was scoring goals from midfield, a small bad run of form but other than that we weren't going down.

We wouldn't have got the brief bounce that we got when Butcher took over either.

I'm 100% convinced we'd have been relegated under Fenlon.

Yip, Fenlons time was up, but for Petrie to employ Terry ****in Butcher on his managerial career, it just goes to show you the kind of background checks that man did.

Butcher should never have been anywhere near the club, him and his sidekick took us down, along with the man who appointed him.

Fenlon while boring the crap out of us, would never have took us down in my opinion.

We might never have won the Scottish Cup, though :greengrin

I can't remember off the top of my head but Butcher did ok up until about Christmas, our results and performances had improved a bit.

January was poor and from then on it was a disaster.

You can interpret stats how you like. We had poor players playing poorly under Fenlon albeit they got the odd result. The odd result will skew things over about 11 games (iirc Fenlon left after 11 games) as opposed to over a season.

I'm hopeful but wary. The best pre season i have seen was under JC. I think we beat Bolton and Middlesbrough and Alan O´Brien looked like a world beater. Teams rarely park the bus and fly into tackles in pre season but that will be the test for us - turning the 1-0 defeats into wins.

I can't believe a thread about a Hibs friendly against Shrewsbury has ended up going o about Fenlon v Butcher and who would or wouldn't have taken us down.

McGivern was decent on loan but was honking when he signed, up town on the bevvy with Collins, Cairney and Vine most nights, Heffernan was injured most of the time, Collins was a headless chicken.

We would've stayed up with Fenlon but bored out of our minds, Butcher lost it in January when he told the whole squad they were away at the end of the season and they downed tools, Thomson and McPake were dropped for standing up to Butcher and Malpas when all the bullying was going on.

Time to move on, good squad we have now and a Scottish cup win, lets look forward for a change.
