What is the best thing about being a Hibby? Pride, other Hibs supporters, sticking with the team through thick and thin
Proudest moment following Hibs? Defeat of Mercer
How did you become a Hibby? Interesting question: my Father’s side of the family was from Stockbridge, which is where we lived, and as a youngster he supported St. Bernard’s (little bit of Edinburgh footie history there – their ground was where the Bank of Scotland computer centre is now). My Mother’s side of the family, however, were from Leith and my Grandparents lived for many years at 48 Albion Road… nuff said? Other bits of the family lived in Edina Place, Albert Street, etc etc. Supporting Hearts was not really an option!
