Bobby Kinloch joined the club in 1959. An inside-forward, he broke into the side in season 1960/61 and impressed with 10 goals in only 11 League appearances. Will forever be remembered for the nerveless penalty he scored Vs Barcelona in the 1961 Fairs Cup tie at Easter Road.

Also played for Berwick Rangers, Toronto City, Hamilton Steelers, Raith Rovers and Dunfermline Athletic.

Robert (aka Bobby) Kinloch was from Govan and was born in Glasgow not Forres - although he was brought up in Forres and also played for Forres Mechanics and the RAF.
Hibs bought him out of his RAF service not Edinburgh Waverly.
He also scored 6 goals in an international match for Malaya and still lost 7-6.

Bobby was born in Govan in Glasgow and not Forres.

Bobby Kinloch and Bobby Nicol and I were very good pals after leaving Hibs we went to Canada together and played for Toronto City for a few years but then I moved to the U.S. and we lost touch. It's very depressing to find
out that they have both passed on.
