26 April 2013

It was 111 years ago today...

...that Hibs last won the Scottish Cup.  On April 26th 1902 they beat Celtic 1-0 with the goal scored by McGeechan.  Bizarrely the Scottish football authorities in an early example of bias toward the old firm insisted the game shoud be played at Celtic Park.

Next month Hibs play Celtic in their tenth attempt since then to win the trophy again.  The Edinburgh Reporter has more information about their last successful attempt.
