London Hibs December 2002 Newsletter


There were thirteen of us at the meeting (plus a guest - Steve), which was held during half time of the Champions league game . Many thanks to the treasurer for allowing us to have Xmas drinks on the club. There were apologies from David Smith and Alex Lindsay.

Brain teaser for the Evening

Firstly Brian set us a question that evening. "What record did Hearts try to break recently?". See below for details.

Burns Night Saturday January 18th 2003

As you are aware our annual Burns Night party is soon coming up. It will be held in The Newmarket Tavern, York Way, London, which is between Camden and Kings Cross.

As it is the 10th anniversary of our Burns Nights and the 30th anniversary of the famous 7 - 0 win we are proud to confirm two special guests:


Tickets cost £15 per head this year. This will cover Food, Music, Piper and Whisky to toast the Haggis. Festivities will kick off at 7.30 & the pub will be open until LATE!!! Tickets will be on first come, first served basis. So please order early to avoid disappointment. As we have already had many enquiries and sold many so far we do expect a huge attendance.

The raffle will feature a first prize of a Signed and Framed Garry O'Connor football shirt, Whisky, Signed London Hibs merchandise and lots more. For those not able to attend on the night raffle tickets are available from Andrew Murray.

Jimmy O'Rourke Testimonial Dinner.

If there is a good response we may be able to book another table.

Football Team News

Christmas Party

The Football Team's Christmas party was a big success, raising over £1200 for team funds... (we're planning to use some of the proceeds to subsidise an end of season trip to Barcelona to play in the first ever European Cup for Supporters Clubs - that's right... always the first into Europe!). Big thanks to all those who turned out and a big thanks again to the CC-Club in Piccadilly who gave us the venue for free.

League and Cup form

A run of poor form saw us shed a load of goals and slump out of both the League Cup and London Cup competitions. Our league form too has been poor though we're second in the table. We're not playing to our full potential (the loss of some old heads and the arrival of a lot of new players mean we've got work to do in getting the team to gel again) but the league is not out of reach - we just need to find that missing formula. Looking forward to some cracking games in the New Year.

London Hibs v Erin Hibs - 29th December in Edinburgh

The annual Christmas fixture (the first game between the two clubs took place last Christmas) kicks off at 11am (venue to be announced) to allow time for a pie and a pint after the game before heading to Easter Road (v. Aberdeen, 3pm). If you're in Edinburgh on the 29th come and shout us on! I'll get the venue details out as soon as I have them...(Ed - keep an eye on the Londonhibs FC website for details)


Just a reminder if anyone that has not paid their subs for this year can these be paid ASAP.

Next meeting will be held at the William Wallace on the 14th January 2003.


Brian's teaser.

Against Rangers Hearts' half time score was 0-0, however by the final whistle the score was 4-0 to Rangers. Against Motherwell the half time score was 4-0.

So the Jambo's appeared to lose 8 goals in 90 minutes.

For OUR record to be beaten all the goals have to be scored in one match.

Sorry guys you will have to do worse to erase our record…….
