Greetings Kankas and Kankies.
I know you are all anxiously awaiting my update on the latest news from the Hibernian Ladies camp ??!!
First the bad news..... Hibs Ladies were eliminated from the UEFA Cup Group Stage earlier this month. Lots of disappointment in Edinburgh after expectations were high. However, as we all know, there are no `easy` games in YooRo footie these days !
Good news..... Hibs Ladies began the defence of their Scottish Premier League Title with a resounding 6-2 win against Edinburgh Ladies last weekend. Eski Kanka's heroine, Kim Little, was on the scoresheet again !
More good news........ Pauline Hamill, who plays in midfield for Hibs Ladies, will win her 100th Scottish Cap on Sunday when Scotland Ladies play Belgium Ladies. She will be the first lady in Scottish footie history to bring up the 100. In fact, only one male player has ever won over 100 caps for Scotland. An easy quiz question with the answer being the great Kenny Dalglish who won 102 caps in his career.
Watch this space for more as the season gets underway.
All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
