Season 89-90 squad photo

Curiously Andy Goram seems to be absent from this squad photo. If anyone knows a good explanation for this (or even just some made up rubbish) I’d love to know.

Pre-season tour – Isle of Man Okell’s Football Festival Tournament, 26 July – 1st August 1987

Quite a few Hibbies made the trip to the Isle of Man by the looks of James Cruickshanks’s photo. If anyone recognises themself, own up!

Gordon Hunter cantering down the wing like a young foal. From the game against Oldham. Nice smooth pitch…

Some wavy-permed Oldham player preparing to try and dig out the ball from the deep rough at a free kick. Talking of Rough, he still doesn’t look happy behind a wall does he? At the back post the crowd goes wild.

According to Bobby Sinnet’s wonderful Fitbastats records, Hibs lost 3-6 to Wigan (!), drew 1-1 with Stoke, and pumped the Isle of Man XI 7-1. The game against Oldham pictured here ended 3-0 to Hibs, but I have no idea if this was the final or just a consolation match. If anyone knows, leave a comment below.
