Hibs FC – Established 1875
SimplyFixIt are proud to be partners of Hibernian FC, Hibs, in the 2012 – 2013 SPL season. As an Edinburgh based company we want to support our local teams, from the top SPL teams like Hibs to the schoolboy leagues. We’re proud to be from this city.Hibs Background
In the mid 1870s, Edinburgh hosted an Irish community of 25,000 living in conditions of appalling poverty in the Cowgate district or "Little Irelandâ". As association football grew in popularity, the committee of the Catholic Young Men's Society (CYMS) decided to form their own club to be called "Hibernian" (from the Latin Hibernia=Ireland); their emblem would the harp and their motto Erin Go Brach (Ireland Forever). According to John Mackay's history, “members were required to furnish at their own expense caps, white guernsey (jersey) with harp on left breast, also white trousers with green stripes”. Father Hannan, the priest of St Patrick's Church was elected manager.
The Edinburgh FA banned its members from playing against, or even having contact with these upstart Irishmen but on Christmas Day 1875 the Heart of Midlothian club broke the embargo. Hibernian were grudgingly admitted to the Edinburgh FA and then the Scottish FA in 1876.
