On Saturday 23rd October 1999, London Hibs held their annual Player of the Year Presentation in the Almond Suite at Easter Road. 180 Hibbies attended the evening and special guests included Pat Stanton, Alex McGhee, Hibs Manager Alex McLeish, Hibs Chairman Malcolm McPherson and most of the Hibs team that earlier in the day had beaten Dundee 5-2! Of course, the main man Russell Latapy was there to receive his unanimous award and also to present his signed Trinidad & Tobago  international shirt to the Hibs Supporters Association for display.
