New Hibs goalkeeper Conrad Logan has already sampled Wembley glory – now he is desperate to help the Leith club triumph at Hampden in the Scottish Cup.
The former Leicester City player has joined on a deal until the end of the season primarily to provide cover for the April 16 semi-final clash with Dundee United because regular number one Mark Oxley is suspended.
Prior to signing the Irishman, Hibs head coach Alan Stubbs had been facing the prospect of heading into the United game only having teenager Sean Brennan as cover to back Finnish shot-stopper Otso Virtanen.
Logan, who spent a total of 14 years with the Foxes before being released last summer, won the League Two play-off final in 2008 during a loan stint at Stockport and is keen to play his part in helping the Easter Road side end their 114-year-wait for cup glory.
Logan, 29, said: “Sometimes football can be quite surreal and I was 21 at the time playing at Wembley, and the game seems to pass by quite quickly.
“It’s a kid’s dream to play at Wembley and to have the chance to walk up the steps and lift the trophy, and thankfully that day we managed to win the game and do that. It was a dream come true.
“I’ve been around a lot of big clubs and big stadiums throughout my career.
“It’s an exciting time and if I get the chance to play it’s something I’ll grab with both hands.
“I’m looking forward to the last couple of months of the season and hopefully it can be a successful time.”
Speaking to Hibs TV, he added: “I was well aware of how big a club it is in Scottish football, it’s steeped in history and once I heard about the interest it was something that definitely interested me.
“It’s a fantastic place to come and work and I’ve really enjoyed it so far.”
