Kevin Dabrowski signs new Hibs deal as Easter Road side plans for life after Ofir Marciano
Kevin Dabrowski has signed a new deal with Hibs, tying him to the club until the summer of 2023.
The Polish shot-stopper, who spent time on loan at Dumbarton earlier this season, has made no secret of his aim to claim the No.1 jersey at Easter Road and with long-serving custodian Ofir Marciano leaving the club this summer the 22-year-old looks set for a chance to fight for the gloves.
Dabrowski joined from Lech Poznan’s youth set-up in 2017, overcoming a bizarre injury early in his Hibs career to impress at development squad level before a productive loan stint at Cowdenbeath during the 2019/20 season.
The arrival of Dylan Barnes on loan from QPR during the summer transfer window allowed Dabrowski to head out on loan and he won plaudits for his performances for the Sons in League One before the season was halted due to a resurgence in coronavirus cases.
He returned in January as third-choice ‘keeper with Barnes recalled by his parent club and Matt Macey arriving on a short-term deal from Arsenal but he could finally get a taste of first-team action next term.
He told Hibs’ website: “I’m very happy here and I’ve been here for four-and-a-half years – soon to be five – and I feel like it’s my second home.
“To sign an extension for two years is a really big positive for me and my family.
“I really enjoy working every day with Ofir [Marciano] and Matt [Macey] and it’s simple for me – I want to become a first choice goalkeeper for Hibernian. That’s the aim.”
