In his personal statement prior to election, Dougan said: “I would like to think having fan representation on the board can have a positive impact on the football club and I can assure all fans that I would not remain on the board if I felt the role was not being taken seriously by the other board members or if it was little more than a public relations exercise.”

Hibernian chairman Rod Petrie said: “The club said it was committed to greater supporter representation, and I am delighted so many supporters took the time to vote. We will welcome the new directors to the board at our next meeting and look forward to their insight and input.”
