  Ealing's lost Jim Marshall shops where generations of kids learnt to play instruments They just happened to be owned by a pure music legend Generations of Ealing youngsters had drum lessons, bought drum kits and had their first taste of rock guitar at shops owned by the music legend Jim Marshall. Many of them probably didn't know at the time he would become one of the most important figures the music business would ever see.

Easter Road stalwart Paul Hanlon continues as club captain, with David Marshall named team captain. Ryan Porteous has been earmarked for a leadership role.

The new titles will see Marshall skipper the team on matchdays with Hanlon assuming the armband in the goalkeeper’s absence and Porteous leading the team in the event both Hanlon and Marshall missed out.

Marshall wore the armband in three of the club’s Premier Sports Cup group matches, with Lewis Stevenson captaining the side at Falkirk.

A number of players captained Hibs last season with Porteous, Stevenson, Paul McGinn, Darren McGregor, and Joe Newell among those taking the armband when Hanlon missed out.

Hibs owner Ron Gordon in scathing SPFL verdict as he labels hierarchy 'foolish' over Edinburgh derby

  Hibs owner Ron Gordon in scathing SPFL verdict as he labels hierarchy 'foolish' over Edinburgh derby The Hibs owner was far from happy with his club's first home game of the season being scheduled against their city rivals and even less so with the decision makers. The match against Hearts takes place at Easter Road on August 7 and doubles up as manager Lee Johnson's first home Premiership game. Gordon doesn't understand the scheduling and reckons the football authorities have made a mess of that fixture and where it is placed. There is also the small matter of Rangers coming to Leith too before the end of August. Their owner reckons it will have an adverse impact on attendances amid construction work at the stadium.

Johnson said: “David is a player with extensive experience and well respected in the dressing room. He has been captain for the majority of pre-season and has really impressed me both on and off the pitch in terms of those leadership qualities.

“Having a strong voice behind the defence will really help the team and be very beneficial to achieving a good defensive record.

“Paul will remain as club captain; he is a player who is extremely trusted and can advise players, young and old, both on and off the pitch and is a key part of our plans moving forward.

“When David and Paul are unavailable, then Ryan will assume captain responsibilities. He is highly regarded within the club. We recognise his will to win and his leadership qualities and look forward to helping him to develop and nurture his leadership skills.”
