Hibs release young midfielder Steven Notman

Last updated : 18 January 2008 By Steve Forbes

It has been revealed today that Hibs have released young midfielder Steven Notman from the club.

The former Scotland U19 has been at the club for nearly 8 years and played a couple of times for the first team under ex manager Tony Mowbray.

Hibs sent Notman out on loan to Berwick Rangers last season and he impressed, helping them to the third division title.

Former manager John Collins also gave Notman a chance to impress him, by handing the player a six month extension to his contract, but the player failed to impress and has left the club.

Speaking to the Peeblesshire news, he said:

"In some ways I'm glad to be away. I've needed a change of scene for a wee while and would like to have left Hibs before my contract ended - I wasn't being given a chance.

"I am just sitting tight at home and seeing what clubs want me.

There have been a few offers from teams in the lower divisions but, no disrespect to them, I'm looking for full time football.

"I really need to get back playing first team football - whether it's for a premier league or first division side.

"I want definitely to stay in
Scotland just now and have a crack at making it with another club."

Good luck in the future Steven, from everyone here at Hibernian-Mad.
