Calm down. I was referring to a Hibs Season Ticket getting you in free to all home Scottish Cup and League Cup Games at Easter Road too.

No but to be honest i can't remember it was a wee book that the turnstyle ripped the relative ticket. But maybe you are correct, cause back then it was finacially better to get a season book if you attended all the home games. It was a rough time to be a Hibby crowds were poor regularly 4000 to 5000 in attendance, that's why i don't buy into all this moaning in how Hibs are now.

it was a time when we did'nt have a allocated area or we were to young and nieve to notice, think i made it up? never missed a Hibs game in a ten year spell including reserve games you got in to the reserves for free if you had a season ticket book.

You are right, we used to go to the west end of the enclosure under the Huns main stand, there was no segregation.

The wee book of tickets.... one season mine went through the washing machine in a pair of jeans and was turned into a lump of solid mush never to be parted again. Unfortunately this was right at the start of the season. Hibs refused to give me a replacement and instead I had to report to the ticket office every week where a wee envelope with my name on it was given out containing a ‘comp’ ticket.
Cheers Hibs

I remember going to games when I was really young (6 years old - 1976) and there was absolutely no segregation. Swapping ends with opponents fans at half time by walking along what felt like a gigantic East terracing.

We also used to get Hibs Kids tickets in the old Main Stand at the Dunbar End which I think was seen as the visitor end - again no segregation.i reckon I was about 11 then so 1981.

Even after segregation- which I think properly started around 83-84 when they built a fence next to the TV gantry in the East and had a big ‘no-man’s zone’ then another fence at the Dunbar end it was still easy to just walk in the away end as most games were still pay at the gate.

I was meaning at the Hunnery, but I agree withwhat you are saying at ER.
