Hibs colts in action v Elgin City on Tuesday night, 7.45pm ko at Ainslie Park.
Lots of excellent players on show like, Porteous, Fraz Murray, Oli Shaw, Mackie, Stirling etc
2 over age players allowed as well in Hibs team

As Hibs are on the up, would be great if we could get a decent size crowd along, to show support for the young lads
See you there

Wonder if Fonts and Big Davy might play then to get them some game time and help the youngsters along?

That seems a bit steep, have Elgin got a say in how much we have to charge?

I presume so
Any idea how much it's to get into see Elgin at home?

Not really. Thats prices for league games. This game should be a lot cheaper than that.

Will those young boys be playing for our development team or their current loan clubs in this competition?

Are the rest of our home development games being played at Oriam again?

If they are playing for the loan clubs we wouldn't have enough to field a team! :greengrin

I believe so but Hibs haven't confirmed it yet!

A nice wee victory tomorrow, and we could get a nice wee trip to either N.Ireland, Wales, or Republic or Ireland😄
2 teams from each of these areas, enter at the next round

Wee trip to play Linfield would be well received now 😝

The website suggests it is ticketed....? I assume that you can pay at the gate?

No, all ticket according to the fishy site. According to the e tickets site we've sold 210 so far. Wiki says capacity is 3000 with 504 seated.

The stadium has a capacity of 3,000 (504 seated).

Yeah just quite a strange scenario lol. Just spoke to Sean (Mackie) and they are playing for Hibs tomorrow night, not City.

Surely they'll have to sell on the night, would be crazy not too, although wondering who would do it?

Agreed it would seem ridiculous not to allow pay at the gate... I've contacted a family member in the squad to ask... will wait and see what he comes back with.

You would be cheaper buying a pie at a bakers and not going to the game mate 😂

The 12 entry is a bit higher than I expected, but after the bonus of free parking at Ibrox I'll put the 7 saved towards a ticket for tonight.

Sounds good
Wonder if we'll use the 2 overage players we're allowed

I didn't pay a lot of attention to the competition last season, so not sure if the Colt teams took advantage of the two over age player ruling or not.
This tournament feels more appealing entering as a Colt team rather than a first team..

Only Celtic, of the Colts sides, got past the 2nd round last year, they ended up losing 4-2 to Livingston
Tonight's opponents, Elgin City, put Hearts Colts out last season!
I'm sure Hibs will be wanting to progress in this, could end up playing a championship side, that would be great experience for the young players. If it was 2 take 2 senior players, not currently featuring, or returning for injury, I'd be more than happy for that.
