17th May 2001

Dear Member,

Following this months meeting a short note to update our members.

'London Hibs AGM 2001'

This will be held at the William Wallace on the 7th of July 07/07!!. This was unanimously voted as the date was too good to miss. The format ( & timing ) will be determined after the Cup Final, hopefully it will be an all singing & dancing occasion! If anyone would like to stand on our little committee or if anybody has any items for our AGM agenda let us know as soon as possible

‘Cup Final Ticket  News’

Requests for Cup Final tickets will be arranged in our normal way. With branch connections, season ticket vouchers ( see below ) and semi-final vouchers, Brian and Tony stated we are very hopeful we can satisfy our demand.


Mike Inglis gave a report on the latest news of our Website.This included details of our Hibs Score Competition, and Merchandise pages.


The fanzine went on sale at the semi-final and due to members selling the issue all went to plan! We printed 800 copies and with 150 copies being placed in retailers, 100 copies being posted to members we should raise £550 for the clubs income. Thanks to all concerned but particularly Mike Inglis, aka editor for life! The treasurer made a plea for all monies due to be paid as soon as possible as this month is the end of our financial year.

“Jimmy Lindsay” Memorial Golf Trophy

This year the London Hibs Golf day will be held on 21st July at Borehamwood. If you wish to play it will be £25 for golf, food and some drinks. Contact Alex Lindsay for details.


Andrew gave a brief presentation about the clubs financial standing. The new merchandise is selling very well. With our new mail order system we have sold over £300 to non members mostly buying through the web or  replying to the flyer in the fanzine. If we can get the monies in from the fanzine sales then we shall be in a break even for the year even after spending £2000 on new merchandise.

Season Tickets

In order to maximise our Cup Final potential for tickets and after several requests from members we will purchase four season tickets for the new stand at Easter Road. This re-affirms our commitment to Hibs. Details for allocation and cost will be decided at our AGM later this year.

'London Hibs Football Team'

Congratulations to our football team. Having beaten Rangers 5-1 they have managed to complete the whole season with 100% record. Well done to Kevin and the lads.


Mike Prior brought along our latest merchandise. This is a London Hibs Rugby or 50’s Football jersey depending on your age. They are on sale from Andrew Murray along with 60’s Football jerseys, Beanie Hats and Fleecy Jackets, however, at the moment our baseball caps have sold out. Mike Prior has ordered a new batch which will be with us for the start of next season. Contact Andrew Murray.

 ‘Next Meeting’
