Paul Reid



Name Paul Reid
Birthplace/ Date Simpsons Memorial - 1969
Primary School St Johns, Portobello
Secondary School Holyrood High School
First Hibs match Pat Stanton Testimonial Hibs v Celtic
How long a member of London Hibs 2 months
How did you find out about London Hibs I work for the same company as Mike Inglis. After three years of constant badgering I finally relented and signed up
Favourite all time Hibs Player John Collins
Most memorable Game League Cup Final v Dunfermline 2-1 
How often do you get to games 3 or 4 times a year
When did you leave Scotland? (If applicable) 1998
Why do you live in the South? Part of the English stock improvement programme (and I work in London).
Favourite English team Hayes
Lowest moment following Hibs? The whole Jim Duffy / Billy McNeill season. It was a lesson in incompetence and mismanagement from two men who took far more from the club than they gave. 
Best Hibs goal? Keith Wrights goal in the League Cup Final. Not because it was a classic goal but because of what it meant to both myself and the club. It's the first and only time I've watched Hibs lift a trophy
What is the best thing about being a Hibby? Knowing I support my (once) local Club whether good or bad and not partaking in the weekly exodus Westward from Edinburgh
Proudest moment following Hibs? Watching my brother Chris be named man of the match on his debut, against Dunfermline, at the age of 17
How did you become a Hibby? The whole family are Hibs supporters. My Dad (before going onto Dunfermline under Jock Stein) and Brother (now with Stirling Albion) have both played for the Club and as a boy I could see the stadium from my bedroom window
