Get Loaded! next weekend and Hibs face Dundee United as new Training Centre soon to open!


Over the Bank Holiday weekend is the "Get Loaded " Festival and I have volunteered to work in the Workers Beer Company Bar on the Sunday with all earnings (£6.50 per hour!) going to the Camberwell & Peckam Labour Party. I actually went to the concert last year so know what it is like and it should be ok apart from the hazards of the occupational ailment "ring pull finger" after many hours opening cans!!! Headline acts are Dizzie Rascal (not my scene really)and the Streets (I do like them!!).
Hibs take on Dundee United away tomorow and wil be hoping for a second away win and maximum points after 3 games. it was our atrocious away form that cost us dear last season so we need to start wining away games against team like Dundee United!
Reports are that the new £3M Training Centre will be opening soon which should make a real difference and wil help us continue our excellent Youth Development Programme( also known as the Celtic and Rangers Youth Development Pogramme!!!) It will be the best facility in Scotland and wil be a real asset to Club and Country.
Scotland play South Africa in a friendly next week with no Hibs players but lots of ex-Hibs players, Caldwell, brown, Miller and O'Connor!! Five of the Hibs sqaud are in the Under- 21 Squad and we also have players in the Moroccan, Belgian, German and Canadian Under -21 Squads!
