Where are they now? – Special edition!

Ok, pinpointing the exact whereabouts of Eddie May, Gordon Rae and Paul Kane probably isn’t too hard. What about those fabulous popsters Just Add Water though? What can they possibly be doing now? In fact, what the hell were they doing then, dressed up like Culture Club when rave culture was just beginning to flourish? What a shrewd piece of commercial sponsorship by Messrs Duff and Gray.

I can’t believe anyone ever heard another thing about them (the band that is), but if you can prove me wrong…

Hibs 2-2 Dundee, 21 March 1987

dundee21387progAlex Miller’s arrival was having a galvanising effect on Hibs, with five wins and five draws in sixteen matches, including two draws against Rangers. The scorers for Hibs were Gordon Rae and George McCluskey, and the team read: Rough, Hunter, Mitchell, Bell, Rae, McIntyre, Weir, McCluskey, Cowan, Kane, McBride, with Tortolano and Kane coming of the bench to replace Hunter and Weir.

The Dundee squad photo in the programme shows a cherubic Colin Hendry before his departure to Blackburn earlier that season, and the great Albert Kidd who had since moved to Falkirk. The Dundee squad for this game featured such as Tosh McKinlay, Tommy Coyne, former Hibs player Graham Harvey, and future Hibee Keith Wright, then only 21 and described as ‘a player who has shown he will be a deadly striker in the Premier League’. Two other figures later to forge a less illustrious association with Hibs were manager Jocky Scott and captain Jim Duffy.
