Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
Congratulations to Hibernian Ladies on reaching their 2nd Cup Final of the season.
Last Thursday, they defeated Newburgh by 3-1 to move into the Scottish FA Cup Final against Glasgow City on 20th May.
Trailing by 0-1 at half time to a hard working Newburgh side, the Hibs girls came out for the 2nd half and kept their composure by playing their normal high speed passing game. Class tells in the end, and it was player of the season Kim Little who calmed the nerves by scoring twice. A late goal came to put thoughts of a replay out of Newburgh's mind !
Having lost in the final of the Scottish League Cup late last year, I'm sure that they will be better prepared for this one and bring another cup back to Edinburgh.
In the meantime, hopefully this result will have given the mens senior team some encouragement for tomorrow night's Scottish FA Cup semi final against Dunfermline at Hampden Park.
Watch this space for more of both matches.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
