It was a day to remember for 21-year-old Hibernian supporter Jude Bain who spent the day at the Hibernian Training Centre, met the players and management staff and even got to take part in the official 2023/24 Team Photo!
Jude’s unforgettable experience was made possible thanks to the Club’s Principal Partner, Bevvy.com, who provided the prize as part of one of their first fan-engagement competitions of the season.
After scanning the QR code on his shirt, Jude was entered into the competition and then selected as the lucky winner, meaning he got to spend the day in and amongst the Hibernian FC First team players and staff at HTC.
Allocated the squad number ‘17’ for the day, Jude was given a guided tour of the training ground by matchday host, Barrie Wilkins, where the 21-year-old met several members of the playing and coaching staff at the Football Club.
As part of the prize, Jude was then invited to be part of the official 2023/24 team photo, where he was pictured front and centre beside Head Coach Nick Montgomery and First Team Coach David Gray.
As well as joining the team photo, Jude also got the chance to meet Montgomery personally before dining with the First-Team in the canteen.
Reflecting on a day to remember, Jude said:
“I couldn’t believe it when I got the call to say I’d won, I thought it was friends playing a joke on me at first, but was absolutely delighted when I found out I had genuinely won.
I’ve been a season ticket holder at the club for years and to meet the manager and the squad was really special and something I’ll never forget.
“I’d like to thank Bevvy and the staff at HTC for making the day such a memorable one.”
