Danny Swanson has revealed that one of the main reasons for joining Hibs next season is because his late friend Shaun Woodburn wanted to see him play in the green-and-white.
Woodburn, who played junior football for Bonnyrigg, tragically died at the turn of the year and Swanson was a close friend of the 30-year-old. He was attacked and stabbed while out celebrating with friends.
Swanson said: “Once Hibs came in, that changed my mind right away. I lost my friend, Shaun Woodburn, who was always at me to sign for Hibs. That had a big part to play. He died on Hogmanay at my dad’s pub. It was a really hard time. “I was still wanting to go to England but that changed my mind and I wanted to stay at home. I’ll play for him and I’m just glad I’ll get the chance to do it.”
