In May, Brian was appointed Director of Football at Hibs. After four decades as a professional footballer, manager, and scout, he has also built a strong reputation for delivering motivational talks.
Run by Hibs Community Foundation volunteers who have completed the 12-week SAMH Changing Room sessions at Easter Road, ‘Supporting Our Supporters’ is one of the Foundation’s diverse range of community outreach programmes. Held on the last Monday of every month, July’s SOS event was particularly memorable for welcoming Brian McDermott as the guest speaker. The Foundation approached him about the possibility of making a presentation at a future SOS drop-in. Given his day job of managing the pre-season transfers, it was assumed this might occur sometime later in the year. All were delighted when Brian agreed to speak at the July SOS drop-in. On the night, the sizeable audience included HCF volunteers and other regular SOS attendees, current Changing Room participants and SAMH coaches.
