The campaign group aiming to engineer a fans’ buy-out of Hibs have again urged the club’s owner Sir Tom Farmer to discuss the Easter Road outfit’s future.

BuyHibs turned down an offer to meet the board of directors, adamant any talks need to take place with Sir Tom and Hibs non-executive chairman Rod Petrie.

As yet their request has not been met, BuyHibs claiming Sir Tom shouldn’t be ignoring a recent Supporters Direct Survey which attracted more than 4000 replies which saw 84 per cent of those who replied say it’s time to discuss a change of direction and ownership ignored.

In a statement released today, BuyHibs said: “The majority of fans connected to Hibernian realise that some form of change is needed; we are keen to open up the discussions to allow the fans to have a stronger voice and a greater understanding of what options lie ahead.

“BuyHibs want the best future for the club and if that transpires to be something other than what we are proposing, we will look to work with that. We are reaching out to the Hibernian community and we have received great support from fans in Australia following meetings last week.”

Now BuyHibs will hold question and answer sessions in the Supporters Club on Monday and Wednesday of next week at 7.30pm, for which fans can register by e-mailling followed by a “sign up Saturday” prior to the home match against Alloa Athletic on December 13.
