Scott Allan scored an emotional first Hibs goal since his return from a heart condition in the cinch Premiership club’s 1-1 friendly draw with Stoke City on Friday.

The attacking midfielder was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy last season and missed a large chunk of the campaign before heading out on loan to Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Allan netted Hibs’ opener before Alfie Doughty leveled for Stoke City.

It brought an end to Hibs’ training camp in England ahead of the club’s Europa Conference League qualifying campaign, which begins this month against either Mons Calpe of Gibraltar or FC Santa Coloma of Andorra. Jack Ross’ side faced Accrington Stanley and Stoke City as part of their pre-season preparations down south.

 

Hibs come back to Edinburgh for a match with English Premier League side Arsenal on Tuesday. Ross made a host of changes in the 1-1 draw, although some players got to play 60 minutes ahead of competitive action later in July.
