    I asked Lawrie Reilly that question at a London Hibs Burns Night. Lawrie said, if they'd all done the same as me (scored) we'd have won 11-7! Typical pugnacious Lawrie! He said it was just one of those nights. I suppose it's no different to us scoring 7 vs Man U in Gordon's testimonial game. In competitive games at that time we fared well against English teams, beating Newcastle & Spurs in the Coronation Cup & scoring 5 against Spurs in the Floodlit League.

    That's a good slant on it from Lawrie

    It was awarded the following year, 1964, which was the last year before the league stepped in,
