    They defeated Rangers on corners?

    I thought only our primary school games were decided that way. I didn't realise it was ever a thing in real football.
    Yip HIBS got the deciding corner late on and they celebrated it as if it were a goal

    ‘As the minutes of the second half ticked away Rangers were leading 5-4 on corners when with 12 minutes left HIBS drew level but there was still no scoring Excitement was high and tempers frayed when with only three minutes to go Jimmy Caskie won HIBS a corner which was greeted by Hibernian as if it were a goal ‘

    8/4/1950 Scottish League Division One

    Hibernian 6 v 3 Clyde

    Johnstone
    Smith
    Turnbull
    Reilly
    Ormond 2

    The players walked out onto the pitch to a slight drizzle that made the surface greasy, slippy and difficult for defenders

    Bobby Johnstone gave HIBS the lead but Clyde were then awarded a penalty that their South African centre forward Ackerman blazed high over Tommy Younger’s crossbar The relief was short lived however as the centre made amends by firing home a 25 yarder that beat Younger all ends up

    With nerves jangling on the terraces Gordon Smith took control scoring himself and setting up Eddie Turnbull for a third

    Early in the second half Lawrie Reilly sped away from his marker to score a fourth before Barclay pulled one back for the ‘Bully Wee’

    A late double from Willie Ormond and a second from Barclay gave HIBS a 6-3 win

    This would be the only game in which all five members of the Famous Five would score

    Rangers would win the title on goal average

    HIBS Younger Howie Cairns Combe Paterson Ogilvie Smith Johnstone Reilly Turnbull and Ormond

    Now that game sounds familiar I remember you looked it out for me earlier in the thread, so it's good to see it again.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    Scottish League Division One (Old) 8/4/1972

    Hibernian 7 v 1 St Johnstone

    Stanton
    Edwards
    ORourke
    Baker
    Gordon 2
    Duncan

    There was something happening down Easter Road way the Tornadoes were starting to take shape but still not quite as we know it

    Hibernian blew St Johnstone away with a scintillating display of fast attacking football goals from Stanton Edwards ORourke Baker Gordon 2 and Duncan in a totally brilliant display

    Alex Rennie scored a consolation goal for St Johnstone in what was HIBS biggest win since they beat Partick Thistle 7-0 in September 1966

    Hibs: Herriot Brownlie and Schaedler McEwan Blackley and Stanton Edwards ORourke Baker Cropley and Duncan

    Att: 6358

    Sadly this was to be the Baker Boys last goal for HIBS

    I actually attended his last game for HIBS a Scottish Cup Semi Final versus Rangers in front of a crowd of 76174 on a hot sunny Saturday afternoon at Hampden one week after the St Johnstone game

    Hibs started nervously and found themselves down to an Alex MacDonald goal but second half HIBS rallied Peter McCloy parried a Baker shot into the path of ORourke who had no hesitation in burying the ball into the back of the net to silence the large Rangers support

    The replay took place two weeks later and HIBS blew Rangers away with a display of fast attacking football Stanton opening the scoring after 12 minutes and Alex Edwards completed the scoring after dispatching a Hazel knockdown into the net

    It was a superb display from HIBS and Rangers could not compete with the accuracy and speed of the Hibernian passing in a game HIBS totally dominated from start to finish Ole! Ole!

    I do not think any of the Supporters Buses returned to Edinburgh with their windows in tact

    Both of these games made a young Billyhibs realise what a horrible and despicable club Rangers really were and they certainly did not like it up em!

    Scottish League Championship 9/4/2016

    Alloa 1 v 0 HIBS

    Weeks away from immortality HIBS continued to stutter in the League losing this encounter to a Duffy goal that had shades of England 1966 written all over it and was doubtful if it had actually crossed the line

    HIBS failed to convert chances that fell to Hanlon Gray Stokes Keatings and Cummings against Jack Ross’s basement boys before Oxley saved a late strike from Duffy

    Hibs : Oxley Gray and Gunnarsson Hanlon Stevenson and Fyvie Henderson McGinn Keatings Cummings and Stokes

    Subs: Boyle for Keatings 62 Dagnall for Cummings 75

    Unused : Bartley Handling MacGregor Thomson and Virtanen

    Scottish League SPL 9/4/2011

    Aberdeen 0 v 1 Hibernian

    Sodje 15

    A first half strike from Akpo Sodje on 15 minutes gave Aberdeen their third successive defeat in seven days

    The dons tried to get back on terms Chris Maguire hitting the post and HIBS goalkeeper Mark Brown pushing a second point blank Maguire effort onto the upright Josh Maginnis had a header hit the underside of the bar but the Edinburgh side survived late Dons pressure to end a run of three games without a win

    Hibs : Brown Hanlon Stephens Booth Towell and Stevenson Thornhill Miller Palsson Vaz Te and Sodje

    Subs: Nish for Sodje 57 Wootherspoon for Vaz Te 57 Murray for Stevenson 74

    Scottish Cup Semi Final Replay 9/4/1958



    Hibernian 2 v 1 Rangers

    Turnbull pen
    Fraser

    This Scottish Cup Semi Final replay took place the midweek after a thrilling 2-2 draw between the teams at Hampden Aitken and Preston being the HIBS heroes

    Hibs had been going through a few extra training sessions in the days before the tie and the extra effort paid off as they triumphed 2-1 and progressed to the final where they would play Clyde

    The replay goals were scored by Turnbull from the spot and Fraser but every single player that night was a hero and the support travelled back to Edinburgh singing their praises It had been 56 years since HIBS lifted that trophy and the win against Rangers gave them their first chance to do so since they lost 2-1 in the 1947 final versus Aberdeen

    Hibs: Leslie Grant McClelland Turnbull Paterson Baxter Fraser Aitken Baker Preston and Ormond

    Att: 74895






    Scottish Cup Semi Final Replay 9/4/1924

    Hibs 1 v 0 Aberdeen

    Dens Park

    Following a 0-0 draw the replay was once again staged at Dens Park Again it was a hard entertaining game with both teams opening up a bit which favoured Hibernian but Willie Harper still had to pull off some fine saves one of which showed Harper to be the best goalkeeper in Scotland The Hibees put Aberdeen under a lot of pressure which mounted as the match got older in 85 minutes Dunn’s shot hit the upright with great force It was a first time effort and easily the best shot of the match Then two minutes later Harry Ritchie went on an unstoppable run down the right wing and the Aberdeen goalkeeper could not hold his thunderbolt shot leaving Darkie Walker to ram home the winning goal

    HIBS opponents in the final were to be Airdrie a highly talented team who were only just pipped by Rangers for the championship in this season

    The fans got right behind the team and Willie Ormond headed in the equaliser from a Gordon Smith corner A little later Smith and Bobby Combe worked a great move and Ormond made it 2-1 Combe made it 3-1 into the second half

    Younger redeemed himself with two late saves but the biggest cheer of the afternoon was reserved for full back Jock Govan who picked up the ball inside his own box went on a mazy run beating man after man found himself deep in the Dundee box waltzed around the Dundee goalie before lifting his final shot high over the vacant goal

    British Championship 10/4/1886

    Scotland 4 v 1 Wales

    James McGhee and James Lundy become the first Hibernian players to represent their country

    Stop the ball now Lundy
    McGhee now take your man
    For the Harp and Hibernian
    Play up the Sons O Dan

    Saturday 10th April 1886 was a proud day for Hibernian and St Patrick’s CYMS when James McGhee and James Lundy ran out onto Hampden Park to play for Scotland against Wales. Canon Hannon, Michael Whelehan, John McFadden and numerous other commitee members were present in the Hampden stand. Also present was ex captain and committee member Michael Cavenagh who three years earlier had been selected to play for Scotland but had missed the game through injury Scotland won by four goals to one and only the crossbar prevented James McGhee from scoring James Lundy did get his name on the score sheet however with a deflection that gave Wales their only goal

    Since that day many players have represented their country ranging from Scotland England Northern Ireland and Wales to European countries as well as far flung places such as Ecuador and Trinidad and Tobago whilst playing for HIBS

    Scottish Cup Final 11/4/1914

    Ibrox Stadium

    Hibs 0 v 0 Celtic

    Special trains carried thousands of Hibernian supporters packed like herring in a barrel to the great Irish Festival in Glasgow The HIBS and Celtic hordes mingled together in good humoured banter and God Save Ireland was sung until their lungs nearly burst as 50000 squeezed into Ibrox A real gale was blowing and the general opinion was that whoever won the toss their decision of ends would win the game Mattha Paterson won the toss and booked the wind the HIBS old tactics being grab a first half goal and hang on to it. HIBS early play was a joy to see just like the ould Hibernians in the past the defence was rock solid and crisp passing between the forwards saw them descend on the Celtic goal
    There is such a thing as tradition attached to Hibernian Football Club and this was plain to see with their green stonewall defence and their dashing helter skelter forwards The gale however spoiled the finishing from Jimmy Hendren Bobby Wilson and Sam Fleming. Celtic the best team in Scotland also played as good a game as the conditions would allow and they had some unconvincing chances. At half time there was no scoring

    In the second half with the wind now at their backs Celtic had the better chances and Willie Allan had to show his worth and once the angels hovered over him as Celtic hit the post The HIBS forwards were still combining well but were less effective but as so often happens in a Cup Final a golden opportunity presented itself for HIBS to steal the match Internationalist Willie Smith broke completely clear of the Celtic defence with one of his famous artful dodger swerving runs and the Celtic goal lay at his mercy he just could not miss Was it that he swerved it at too sharp an angle was it the windy conditions perhaps it was just the gods Willie screwed the ball beautifully across the Celtic goal but it went just past the post This was in the last minute of the match poor HIBS they had come so near to accomplishing their mission and poor Willie he was to suffer from recurring nightmares about the incident To the credit of the HIBS officials we are told Willie was never criticised nor were there any recriminations it was not in the philosophy of the football school these Irish gentlemen ran at Easter Road and gentlemen they surely were So the Final ended in no scoring a result no one would have predicted

    11/4/1981 Scottish League Division One

    Hibernian 2 v 0 East Stirling

    Callachan
    Connolly

    Hibs only needed three more points to win the League East Stirling knew that they were ‘safe’ from relegation so were relaxed and playing with confidence

    Man of the Match was Arthur Duncan whose service to the club had been rewarded with a testimonial
    The goals came from Ralph Callachan and John Connolly Ally MacLeod made a late appearance as a Sub for Willie Jamieson to mark his return to action after eight weeks out due to injury

    At the final whistle results elsewhere meant that HIBS were guaranteed promotion they now had to concentrate on winning the first division title Dundee St Johnstone Raith Rovers and Motherwell all being in with a shout

    Scottish Championship Sunday 12/4/2015

    Hibernian 2 v 0 Hearts

    Cummings
    El Alagui

    Hibernian took the Edinburgh derby day spoils for the first time this season and kept up their claim on second spot in the Championship

    Jason Cummings close range finish rewarded HIBS early dominance and the best chances continued to fall for the hosts with Liam Fontaine hitting the bar and Farid El Alagui missing from close range

    El Alagui scored a deserved second in time added on after champions Hearts were opened up on the break

    The win ensures HIBS remain in front of Rangers on goal difference ahead of next weekends Scottish Cup semifinal with Falkirk

    It was also a first derby win for Alan Stubbs whose side had twice lost leads in the previous meetings between the sides this term

    Hibs: Oxley Forster Hanlon Fontaine Boyle McGeouch Allan Fyvie Stevenson El Alagui and Cummings

    Subs: Malonga on for Cummings 68 Dja Djedje on for Malonga 87

    Unused: Cerny Craig Stanton Handling and Dunsmore

    Dunfermline Athletic 1 v 1 Hibernian

    Jackson 31 pen

    Darren Jackson equalises a Gerry Britton strike from the penalty spot after he was pulled down in the box as he was about to score by Andy Tod

    Jacksona slotted away the penalty with chants of Cheat! Cheat! ringing in his ears

    Jim Leighton pulled off two world class saves in the second half to keep us in the game

    Chic Charnley was booked in this match which meant he missed the rest of the season including the play-offs

    Motherwell beat Raith Rovers 5-0 at Fir Park relegating them on this day

    12/4/1978 Scottish Premier Division

    Hibernian 1 v 1 Celtic

    Higgins 19

    Hibs and Celtic were locked on points in the fight for the coveted fourth place and the UEFA Cup spot This game was originally postponed from 3rd December 1977 Both clubs would play again at Easter Road on the Saturday and the Hibees would be victorious This match being played on the preceding Wednesday night

    HIBS dominated the early play squandering a couple of early chances to score before Tony Higgins finally gave HIBS the lead with a shot that swerved over Peter Latchford and into the unguarded net after the Celtic defence failed to clear an Ally MacLeod cross into the box

    Celtic equalised on 30 minutes when Ronnie Glavin created a chance for promising youngster George McCluskey to slot home

    The half ended 1-1 and HIBS must have regretted those missed chances

    The second half was uneventful until in the dying minutes Big Dode Stewart blundered with a passback allowing Tommy Burns to nip in and rattle the base of Mike McDonald’s post At the other end Hibs missed a goalden chance when Latchford dropped a cross at Willie Murray’s feet and with the very last kick of the ball Dowie drew an excellent full length save from McDonald
