|With Hibs losing the services of 'keeper Dillon Barnes, as he was recalled by parent club QPR, the Easter Road side have recalled Kevin Dabrowski from his loan spell at Dumbarton. Dabrowski turned out for Sons 12 times, a period during which he kept four clean sheets and made many outstanding saves.
Barnes played eight times for the Hibees and Head Coach Jack Ross said: "Dillon goes with our best wishes and I’d like to thank him for his contribution this season. He’s been a well-liked member of the group, whose attitude has been first class since the day he arrived at the Hibernian Training Centre. “Our goalkeeping coach, Craig Samson, has been equally pleased with his efforts. Dillon has performed well when he’s had the opportunity to play - especially in our recent game at Ibrox when Ofir Marciano missed out through injury. However, we understand the desire for regular first-team football."
Dillon said: "I’ve loved every minute of my time at Hibs. I’ve been made to feel very welcome by everyone at the club and it’s been a great experience all-round. I’ve learned a lot that I’ll take with me, and it’s been a pleasure working on a daily basis with the coaching staff and the other goalkeepers. I’ll always look out for the Hibs score on a Saturday and it goes without saying that I hope the boys have a great second half of the season."
Dumbarton manager Jim Duffy said: "We were hopeful of retaining Kevin for the full season but it has proven not to be and he returns to Hibs with our best wishes. With the ability he has shown during his time with us, he has a very real chance of progressing back at Easter Road. He will not be easy for us to replace, but it now becomes our priority to add a goalkeeper to the squad in time for our next game."
