Watch Andrew Cohen’s spectacular goals as the Hibernians playmaker is now just 2 goals short of club 100.

The 31 year old  began his career with his boyhood team Hibernians, making the transformation from the youth squad to the senior squad during the 1999–2000 season. Andrew made seven appearances in his debut season, scoring one goal, as Hibernians recorded a 6th place finish in the Maltese Premier League.

The 2000–01 season, saw Cohen firmly establish himself in the Hibernians first team squad, as he helped Hibernians to a 4th place finish in the Maltese Premier League, making 19 appearances and scoring three goals.

Andrew tasted his first success in the 2001–02 season. He was a key member of the Hibernians squad that won the Maltese Premier League title. Cohen went on to make 19 appearances and score four goals during that season.

Despite the success of the previous season, Cohen and Hibernians couldn’t emulate the same achievement during the 2002–03 season. The club went on to finish the season in 4th position in the Maltese Premier League, with Cohen making 17 appearances and scoring three goals.

The inclusion of Terence Scerri in the Hibernians first team for the 2003–04 season helped Andrew really start to show his attacking prowess. The pair started to play together regularly, which turned out to be the start of a devastating striking partnership. Hibernians went on to finish one place better than the previous season, in 3rd position. Cohen made 23 appearances and scored seven goals during the season. Cohen’s good form had not gone unnoticed as he also received his first cap for Maltese national team during the season.

The 2004–05 season, saw Andrew burst onto the goal scoring scene, he helped Hibernians to another 3rd place finish in the Maltese Premier League, making 27 appearances and scoring an incredible 21 goals, finishing as the Maltese Premier League top scorer. Cohen also received the very prestigious award of the Maltese Player of the Year for the first time in his career.

Andrew’s impressive form continued into the 2005–06 season, he helped Hibernians secure a 4th place finish in the Maltese Premier League, making 26 appearances and scoring 14 goals. Andrew also helped the club win the Maltese Cup, and Cohen was honoured again, as he scooped the Maltese Player of the Year award for the second consecutive season.

Cohen went into the 2006–07 season, and added to his medals collection, as Hibernians secured the Maltese Cup for the second consecutive season. On the domestic front, Hibernians finished in 5th position in the Maltese Premier League, with Andrew making 24 appearances and scoring eight goals.

The 2007–08 season turned out to be a very disappointing one for Hibernians, as the club finished the first phase of the season in the relegation pool, there was never any doubt the club would avoid relegation, and finished the season in 7th position. Cohen went on to make 23 appearances and score six goals. The club did however have one thing to shout about, as the won the Maltese Super Cup.

Hibernians went from one extreme to the other during the 2008–09 season. Under the guidance of new manager Mark Miller, the club shocked the critics and beat Valletta by two points to win the Maltese Premier League title. Andrew made 22 appearances and scored nine goals.

Andrew hoped to help Hibernians retain the Maltese Premier League title for the 2009–10 season, however the quest took some severe setbacks, as Hibernians sold the Maltese Player of the Year Clayton Failla to Sliema Wanderers, and Cohen’s strike partner Terence Scerri joined Valletta, a new strike partner did replace Scerri at Hibernians in the shape of Etienne Barbara, who returned to the island after a spell playing in Germany. Barbara didn’t stay with Hibernians long and moved to Carolina RailHawks in the United States, Cohen and Hibernians finished the season in disappointing fashion with a 5th place finish. Cohen made 24 appearances and scored six goals.
