"Profile of a Southern Hibby"

John Henderson



Name John Murray Henderson
Birthplace/Date Dulwich Hospital, London (Sorry!) 1966
Primary School St Josephs Primary, Upper Norwood, London
Secondary School St Josephs College, Upper Norwood, London
First Hibs match Allegedly when I was about 6 years old.  On a trip up from London with my folks (Mum from Prestonpans, Dad from Penicuik) my Dad took me to Easter Road.  Don't remember much about it apart from the cold, swearing and seeing my Dad go completely mental for the first time!  In recent years, 1990 against Partick, guess what, 0-0!!
How long a member of London Hibs About 1 month since moving down from Leith where I lived for the last 10 years
How did you find out about London Hibs Well known around Easter Road
Favourite all time Hibs Player There will always be a place in my footballing heart for the likes of Joe Tortolano, Alan Sneddon and Tam McIntyre.  But seriously, all time favourite has to be Keith Wright. Top Hibee and can still be seen in the Centre Stand on match days when he's not playing for other lower division sides!
Most memorable Game Either the 3-0 stuffing of the Maroon Muppets recently (what a goal from Sauzee) or the Skol Cup Semi!!
How often do you get to games Been a season ticket holder off and on for the last 9 years
When did you leave Scotland? (If applicable) Jan 2000
Why do you live in the South? Work
Favourite English team Crystal Palace 
Lowest moment following Hibs? Hearts winning the Scottish Cup
Best Hibs goal? Kevin Harper, Easter Road, 1997 against the Scumbos.  What a strike!  Gets ten yards further out each time I remember it!
What is the best thing about being a Hibby? First to wear the green and, of course, moral superiority
Proudest moment following Hibs? Driving from the West End in Edinburgh along Princes St with the streets lined with green and white, all the way down to Easter Road. Awesome
How did you become a Hibby? My Dad, even though he moved to London in the early sixties, always loved his team and when I moved to Scotland, there is only one true choice for Football in Edinburgh!
