Re: Hibernian Friendly Matches 1971

I'm at work at the moment , but off the top of my head I have a Hibs programme against Nimegen from around that time and IIRC it gives you the line ups for the short tour they made of the North of England late that season. Will get back later.

Re: Scotland u-23 against The Army

I think the Hibs winger for the U23s was Johnny McLeod who was later transfered to Arsenal and played in the ill fated 9-3game. I'm not near any reference at the moment and writing this on my phone, but I think Ally was still at Blackburn and would have been over 23.
