Treasurer’s Report

Although our turnover decreased this year by £500, we ended the year with a surplus of £9.80. Subscriptions remained over £1,200 and our annual POTY turnover increased to over £2,100. Our new venture in mail order merchandise was a great success. We advertised in the Fanzine and on our Web Page, this brought in over £500 in sales to places such as Germany, Canada, USA as well as in the UK.

Our profit came from Subscriptions of over £1,200, POTY of over £600 and our Hibs Score Prediction competition made a profit of over £80 as the prizes were paid for in the last financial year. Our Fanzine made over £100 with stock in retailers to be collected when the next issue is produced and our Burns Night broke even.

Our main expenditure this year was in Merchandise, on which we spent over £2,000. We still have a supply of stock in hand which will raise revenue next year. As ever, Hibernian F.C. were well-supported in 2000/01 by investments of £1,083 in direct purchases which included Season Tickets, Player Sponsorship and Almond Suite membership and with indirect purchases of our POTY bash of over £1,700. Our postage costs were down as we now only post to members who do not have e-mail.

We also donated £50 to charity.

The cash available at 1st June is £780.94.

Apfscil/Football Team 

No update  from APFSCIL and Grant Ramsay continues to be our representative and Kevin Robertson continues to be on the APFSCIL committee.

The APFSCIL league Division one shield was proudly displayed at the meeting which the London Hibs football team won for the second year in a row. David Drysdale will take over the management of the football team from Kevin. Kevin will continue to report back the progress of the team during the new season. Good luck lads we want another 100% which we hope will include the Cup. For all you fit London  Hibee’s out there the team is always looking for new players.

Fanzine

Mike Inglis was given a 100% vote to carry on with the great work on the fanzine. (But if anyone is dying to take over and avoid a divorce (mine that is) email [email protected]) Rose and Alex will also help with collecting articles. If you have any articles etc please do send them to us. Due to the internet coverage it has been decided to have one issue in the year. 

Many thanks again to everyone who contributed and sold the last fanzine. Why not try to beat Rose’s record of selling twenty fanzines in five minutes. Mind you the low cut top did help....More

Player of the Year vote

The votes were cast for the POTY and in reverse order 

3rd place Ulrik Laursen

2nd place John O Neil 

1st place Frank Sauzee

Frank won it by the length of Easter Road.

1st time somebody has retained the trophy as in previous years those who won it ******** off soon after i.e. our friend Russell "Lapaty", Darren Jackson, Michael O'Neill and Darren Dodds. It got so bad that in previous years members were voting for Alex Miller to see if he would ******** off as well.
