Hibernian Ladies beat city rivals Spartans 4-1 on Sunday to complete their Scottish Women’s Premier League campaign

Liz Tweedie scored twice then Kirsty Smith made it 3-0 before Katie Reilly pulled one back. Siobhan Hunter made it 4-1 near the end.

Afterwards manager Chris Roberts told the club website:  “It was a nice way to finish the league season and it was nothing less than we deserved.

“Spartans’ goal was probably their only shot on target as we had a lot of possession but were not as cut-throat as we have been in front of goal.

“Next weekend’s cup final was in the back of everyone’s mind so it was pleasing to come through it without picking up any knocks.

“Today was a reward for Ellis (Notely) (who made her debut) for all her hard work. She was fantastic, getting stuck in and showing a fantastic range of passing.

“I’m proud of the number of players promoted from our academy to the first team over the years and it is something we will continue to do.”

Hibernian: Fife, Smith, Hunter, Murray, Williamson, Robertson, Arthur, Richards, Harrison, Tweedie, Arnot. Substitutes: Brownlie, Notely, Heron.

Spartans: Cumings, Mawson, Barnes, Beveridge, Douglas, Reilly, Marshall, Crosbie, Russell, Mason, Ewens. Substitutes: Simpson, Pagliarulo, Agbemedinao, Herlet.

The girls  face Glasgow City in the Women’s Scottish Cup final this weekend at at Ainslie Park which is live on BBC Alba.
