Football – Heart of Midlothian vs Hibernian


Click the link below to head over to the Pro Sports Images website where you can check out my full gallery of images (along with some excellent work from Craig McAllister at the other end of the ground) as Heart of Midlothian played out a goalless draw against Hibernian at Tynecastle in the Scottish Cup.

If I’m honest this couldn’t have gone much worse. A dreadfully dull match with no real chances at either end and very few talking points beyond a poor playing surface. I’ve never been overly interested in Scottish football and this match hasn’t done much to inspire me into changing my mind. Add in the freezing cold, snow and technical issues with my laptop pre-game and I think the only real highlight was the tray of steak pies in the photographer’s room.

The teams are due to replay in ten days but I’m missing out as the agency has a new photographer working locally who will be joining Craig McAllister in covering the match. If the quality of football is the same as it was on Sunday then I won’t be too disappointed!
