Alex Harris (born 31 August 1994 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish footballer, who plays for Hibernian.[1]

Career[edit]

Harris attended Edinburgh Academy and played for the Civil Service Strollers under-12 side,[2] alongside future Hibs teammate Danny Handling.[3] He made his professional debut on 6 October 2012, in a 3–0 win against Dundee.[4] Harris inspired Hibs to come from 3–0 down at half-time to win 4–3 in a 2012–13 Scottish Cup semi-final against Falkirk, as he scored the first Hibs goal and provided the second.[5]

He missed most of the first half of the 2013–14 season due to an ankle injury.[6] After returning to the Hibs first team in January 2014, Harris signed a new contract with the club.[6]

Harris was selected for the Scotland national under-19 football team in August 2012.[7]
