Andrew McNeil Soccer Goalkeeper
Andrew "Andy" McNeil (born 19 January 1987 in Edinburgh, Scotland) is a Scottish professional association football goalkeeper who currently plays for Livingston. McNeil was previously with Hibernian, for whom he played in the 2007 Scottish League Cup Final win. He has also represented Scotland at three youth international levels. A former student at Leith Academy, McNeil drew early inspiration, and an inclination towards goalkeeping, from watching Jim Leighton play for his local side, Hibs. He opted to start his career in England, however, joining Southampton in August 2003 through their academy system, earning a professional contract in 2004. He was a member of Southampton's youth team that reached the 2005 FA Youth Cup Final, losing on aggregate to Ipswich Town. McNeil negotiated an early release from his contract when new Saints manager George Burley signed a rival young goalkeeper, Bartosz Białkowski, in January 2006. Despite occasionally appearing on the substitute's bench, he did not make a competitive appearance during his time with Southampton. Two days after his departure from the St Mary's Stadium, McNeil returned to Edinburgh to sign for Hibernian.

Hibernian F.C. Football
Hibernian Football Club (/hɨˈbɜrniən/ hə-BER-ni-ən) are a Scottish professional football club based in Leith, in the north of Edinburgh. They are one of two Scottish Premier League clubs in the city, the other being their Edinburgh derby rivals, Hearts. Hibernian were founded in 1875 by Irish immigrants, but support for the club is now based on geography rather than ethnicity or religion. The Irish heritage of Hibernian is still reflected, however, in its name, colours and badge. The name of the club is usually shortened to Hibs. The team are also called The Hibees (pronounced /ˈhaɪbiːz/ HY-beez) and The Cabbage, a shortening of the rhyming slang for Hibs of "Cabbage and Ribs", by fans of the club, who are themselves also known as Hibbies. Home matches are played at the Easter Road stadium, which the club have played at since 1893, when the club also joined the Scottish Football League. Hibernian have played in the Scottish Premier League since 1999, one year after the breakaway league was founded. Hibernian have won the Scottish league championship four times, most recently in 1952.
