Hibernian Ladies’ and Scotland international goalkeeper Shannon Lynn has joined Swedish side Vittsjö GIK on a three-month contract whilst Jenna Fife has been recalled from her loan spell with Hutchison Vale.

Manager Willie Kirk told Hibernian TV: “Losing Shannon is obviously a blow but we have two quality keepers waiting in the wings.

“Hannah (Reid) and Jenna are both capable of coming into the side and doing well and the fight for the number one jersey starts this week at training.”

Meanwhile the on-form Ladies easily secured their place in the semi-finals of the Scottish Women’s Premier League Cup with a comprehensive 7-0 victory over Buchan at Albyn Park on Sunday.

Kirk continued: “The referee [Erin Cunningham] wanted to postpone the match due to the extreme weather conditions.

“Thankfully, we were able to make her see sense given Buchan had paid out £600 to hire a bus to get here and the rearranged fixture would’ve been played in midweek.

“The weather was horrible and there were a couple of daft periods where the ball just wouldn’t stay still for set pieces, but I felt it was a decent performance from the girls in the end.

“It wasn’t the nicest performance for us and in the first half, with the wind behind us, I felt we didn’t make the most of it and instead kept playing the wrong ball.

“We tried to play it in behind Buchan too often and persisted even when it was evident it wasn’t working.

“We changed it at half time and in the second half we kept the ball better, making more of our opportunities. The two goals just after the break killed the game and we were quite comfortable.”
