Lewis Stevenson, Hibs’ longest-serving player, is to enjoy a testimonial with the first event a dinner at which The Proclaimers will play an hour-long set.
Stevenson is beginning his 11th season at the Easter Road club having already clocked up 320 matches in a green-and-white shirt becoming the first Hibs player to win both the Scottish and League Cups.
The 28-year-old has insisted half the proceeds go to charity with the Jenni and David Paul Memorial Fund which supports CRY (cardiac risk in the young) and Leith Links – set up by Hibs fans to enable more children to attend games – to be the beneficiaries.
The dinner will take place at Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange on Saturday, September 3 and tickets are already available. Further information can be obtained from Graeme Cadger, chairman of Stevenson’s testimonial committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org
