How did you find out about London Hibs See above
Favourite all time Hibs Player Alex Edwards
Most memorable Game Hearts 0 Hibernian 7. My first game in Edinburgh
How often do you get to games Due to work, not at all these days but I'll be back
When did you leave Scotland? (If applicable) Firstly in 1987 but several times since
Why do you live in the South? Definitely more work opportunities
Favourite English team West Ham United
Lowest moment following Hibs? Several, relegation of course, Hearts defeats, but the defeat by Celtic in the Cup semi final replay in 95 was a sickener
Best Hibs goal? Too many to single out one in particular
What is the best thing about being a Hibby? Meeting up with the many friends accumulated over the years in following a team that doesn't rely on success to attract its supporters
Proudest moment following Hibs? 7-0 at Tynecastle. The two League Cup wins and the Dryborough Cup success in 1973 - again, too many to list
How did you become a Hibby? After a match at Boghead in 1972 when Hibs scraped a 2-2 draw in the dying moments (fully explained I think in the 3rd issue of HHHT)
