  1. Almost went to this one myself Dave but decided on Edinburgh United instead. Having saw the Hibs U19’s a couple of times earlier in the season they are a talented bunch and good to watch. Will need to try and catch up with you at a match before the season finishes..will look out for somebody with a camera! Keep up the good work!

  2. I’ll get a full write up on the site eventually, but it was a good game and quite competitive considering that the Shield isn’t taken all that seriously by Hearts and Hibs.
    Hibs are a good side but on the evidence of this Hearts have some good youngsters coming through too.
    Hope you didn’t get too wet up at Paties Road when the heavens opened later in the evening! 🙂
