    I recall Juha (Jack the) Rippa and Iron Testicles.

    I think the latter was trialled/signed by Jum Duffy just before he was emptied. Alex McLeish sent him packing.

    I seem to recall an Icelandic also signed by Duffy who came on as a half time substitute and scored but was rarely seen after that?

    Bjarni Larusson?

    I love an obscure Hibs player thread.

    My mate supports West Ham and at one point I had his mobile number and he didn't have mine so when I sent him a text he didn't know who it was from. I spent months texting him nothing but the names of the most obscure West Ham players, the Alex Bunburys of this world, before he realised who was sending them.

    22 in 20 years isn't that high when you consider that for a lot of that time we were a shambles. in addition to our budget.

    bigger issue seems to be that we don't seem to trial players who actually go onto sign or help us.

    The article is only featuring 22. We will have had many more on trial - maybe into the hundreds - over the past 20 years.

    Didnít mclaren play for us under Bobby against Sunderland? Iíve no idea why we didnít give him a deal as he was class when he went to Killie I think. We had Morten Hydergaard in goal and he seemed decent but Danny Anderson got the shout?

    Not checked article just like remembering stuff haha.
    not sure about sunderland game but he played as a trialist at preston away.

    Sauzťe was signed directly without a trial. His debut was at Brockville (along with Alex Marinkov) and IIRC he played the whole match.

    It was either Latapy or Boozy who was hooked after 30 minutes of their trial.
    Was it not Uli Laursen that was hooked off after Eck thought he looked amazing and was petrified some other team was watching. May have been Boozy

    Was at Bjarni Larussons debut Killie away back in 1997/98

    Lost 1-2

    Came on as a sub scored a goal Kevin Harper was sent off

    Looked a million dollars only played seven games and was packed off to Walsall

    Not a bad day out got there early and got into Killies wee social club underneath the main stand

    Back in 1969 Willie Macfarlane had just become HIBS Manager

    Me and my mate went down to Easter Road to watch HIBS v Morton Reserves

    We went to the players entrance to see if we could speak to any of the players

    We spoke to a young guy standing on his own who informed us he was not a HIBS player but was on trial today from Stirling Albion

    He gave us two Complimentary Tickets for the Centre Stand and asked us to meet him after the game and he would show us the Changing Rooms and let us run out the tunnel

    His trial was a success

    It was Erich Schaedler

    Thanks Mister!

    I remember the rice puns, or at least the threat of them happening.

    Platt was never a trialist, we made an offer for him while he was at Crewe, but truth is we were never close to signing him - as by this time he had quite a cast of suitors down south....


    Rosenthal was a trialist, but also already had designs on England rather than Scotland.....

    Jings there's a wound opened up. I thought Laurson was a great player and was so disappointed when he left for that lot it was a raw wound for quite a while, clearly still is in fact.
