Hibs’ Chief Executive Leeann Dempster has thanked the Hibernian Supporters Association for the recent strong support shown to the Club.

The HSA have sponsored the Persevered Scottish Cup Trophy Tour which has seen the cup visiting schools and hospitals throughout the region.

The Association also raised money to assist the club with any potential penalties imposed following the disturbance after the Scottish Cup final.

Ms Dempster, said: “We are very grateful to Hibernian Supporters Association for the tremendous goodwill and support they have shown towards the Club in recent weeks.

“Not only have they sponsored the Persevered Scottish Cup Trophy Tour, they have also been in contact with the Club since the Cup Final to see what they might do to help. We are really gratified to see the Association encouraging supporters to help support the Club in this way and it underlines the positive relationship between the Club and the Association – and indeed the wider supporter base.

“The Persevered Tour is going fantastically well and we are reaching out to thousands of school children with positive messages, and I know that engaging with the fans of the future is something supporters are keen that we do.”
