    Coventry City? I'm sure I remember John Salako playing for them at ER.
    Gary McAllister was absolutely brilliant that day and showed what a fantastic player he was. He was getting it tight from the Hibs fans because he was very vocal about the Scotland v Lithuania World Cup qualifier being switched from ER to Parkhead. In hindsight, he was spot on as a full house watched Scotland qualify.

    I remember when he got subbed he received a standing ovation from the main stand.

    Technically Notts County and Accrington Stanley haven't played at Easter Road Stadium as the games were played at the old "Hibernian Park" over the railway line from the present stadium - if you include the old park then you can add:

    Church Lancashire
    Corinthian's English Select
    Holmes Zulus of Sheffield (charity team)
    Newcastle Tyne Association

    Additional English teams to have played at Easter Road:

    Barnsley
    Bristol City
    Wolves
    Bradford City
    Middlesborough Ironopolis
    Also Burnley (against Edinburgh Select).

    Sunderland at ER,late 50's or early 60's. Brian Clough was in their team.
    Also remember combined Hibs/Hearts select playing in pre season charity games against top English sides.
    Might that have been Middlesbrough rather than Sunderland?

    Hibs 6 Boro 6 on 2/11/1959 Joe Baker (3), Bobby Johnstone (2), Willie Ormond

    Ten days later we beat them 4-3 at Ayresome Park - Tommy Preston, Joe Baker, Willie Ormond, Johnny McLeod

    Stoke, sometime in the mid 70's - Gordon Banks played for them that night near the end of his career. Only one yak as well, amazing goalie still. Garth Crooks made his debut.

    Cheers J.

    9 days before my 16th Birthday. That was a weird mid-week friendly to arrange. Also remember it was quite foggy.

    I knew there was a reason i don't like him

    I remember waiting for Banks autograph at the players entrance under the west stand, bit different now!

    A visit to the loft is in order to dig that programme out.

    Don't think Man City have played Hibs at ER. They played Coventry at ER in the Skol pre-season tournament thingy in the late 70s and Hibs played Man City at Tynecastle when Joe Corrigan laid out Colin Campbell.
    Remember the Man City fans chanting "Subbuteo" towards the old Albion Road end enclosure which I suppose was quite funny at the time.

    Yes, it was Middlesbrough. Memories fade,dont keep written records. But should have remembered from reading The Damned United.

    Thanks HibbyBrian for correcting me. Should have guessed I was wrong given the Bobby Johnstone link.

    Hibs are listed as beating Manchester City 5-2 in a November 1957 friendly match.

    Has anyone got any details of who was in the Hibs team and who scored?

  21. #50
    Our record against English sides must be pretty decent. Can't really remember many defeats in pre season games

    Speaking of Middlesboro, I have very vague memories of a pre-season friendly v them which featured Norbert Stiles. Must have been early 70's. I suppose the toothless one was rather famous and it stuck with me that he played. Hibs lost that game?

    Yip crunched Bertie Auld who was making his debut

    Bertie fell awkwardly and ‘did’ his collar bone

    Tam McNiven came on and informed Bertie he would have to come off

    Bertie says “ Give me 5 minutes “

    Two minutes later Nobby is getting carried off on a stretcher

    Think we lost 0-2 two late goals

    It was also Ned’s first official game in charge

    Nice thread to resurrect.

    This was the game when the England Selection Committee came up to ER to watch both Baker and Clough go head to head. Baker scored a hat trick and made his full England debut 16 days later getting a goal and an assist.

    Footage of Baker's England debut on youtube. 19 years old.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uLb31pq7WY

    At 19secs you can see that irate Jambo guy who does his "I'm angry" vlog in his jammies.

    Was that late 70s early 80s, I mind loads of sticky buns turned up cos Jock Wallace was the CC manager at the time. There was bother outside the main stand and along ER after the game with the buns.

    My selective powers of recall amaze me, this must have been before the start of 71-72 season? I'd have been 7, coming on 8. Must have been easily impressed (by seeing the great Nobby).

    Anyone remember a friendly against Middlesborough at Easter Rd, must have been in the early 70s?

    Jack Charlton was their manager.

    They played a hundred-miles-an-hour pressing game (first time I'd witnessed it) and wiped the floor with the Hibees. I think it was about 0-4.

    Yeah, I remember that one too. Was that 96/97 or 98? Pre-season friendly. I think Nii Lamptey might have played (which I wanted to see as he was the first 'superplayer' in Championship Manager...)
