While we all anxiously await and ponder the appointment of Hibs next Manager I am pleased to be able to announce that we have taken delivery of a magnificent headstone for the legendary Dan McMichael, who held office as Manager, Secretary and Treasurer of our great club. Dan was the last Hibernian Manager to lift the Scottish Cup in 1902 and Scottish League title 1902/3 season and although buried in the Eastern Cemetery, a stone’s throw away from The Holy Ground, it is a sad fact that Dan’s resting place has until now been unmarked, with no gravestone or inscription to him or his unique service to the Club. St. Patrick’s Branch of the Hibernian Supporters Association working hard with Hibernian supporters from near and far will now rectify this. It is only through the generosity of Hibernian fans that this has been made possible.
St Pat’s wish to invite all Hibernian Supporters to join us, along with members of the Hibernian F.C. Board, the Hibernian Supporters Association and the McMichael Family, to this event. St. Patrick’s Branch Patron and modern day legend Patrick Gordon Stanton will unveil this stone in honour of Dan. The ceremony will take place in the Eastern Cemetery, Easter Rd, on Saturday 7th December at 11.30 am, prior to the home game against Patrick Thistle. Please look out for more details on here, the Hibernian F.C and St. Pat’s websites and make this a real Hibernian family celebratory occasion.
