Greetings Kankas. Some good news coming out of Edinburgh today. After losing 2 Cup finals to Glasgow City this season, the Edinburgh Ladies of Hibernian clinched the Premier League Title. Report below courtesay of the Hibs FC Site-

After Hibernian Ladies match against Forfar Farmington on Sunday, Suzy Robertson became the second Hibs player to Captain the club to the Scottish Women's Premier League title. It was in fact the Ladies second Championship win in three years with the girls ending the League campaign unbeaten. Normally if a side goes on such a long unbeaten run they could expect to have the title sown up relatively early but such had been the fine form Glasgow City were in themselves, the outcome went right to the death with Hibernian eventually finishing three points ahead of their Glasgow rivals.

A great achievement therefore this season for Edinburgh teams. Hearts winning the Scottish Cup, and in finishing in 2nd place, qualification for the Champions League. Hibs by virtue of finishing 4th in the League qualified for the Inter Toto Cup.

So, perhaps the Hibs team can take some inspiration from their lady counterparts and go all the way in the Inter Toto, UEFA Cup and The Scottish Premier League next season ??!!

Ever the optimist !!!

Congratulations to the Hibs Ladies Team from all Kankas in Ankara, especially the Scottish ones !!!

All the best from Happy Eski Kanka Jim
