She said: “It’s not only a credit to Hibs but Aberdeen and Celtic are starting to close the gap as well. I’ve been involved with the league for the last few years and this is the closest that I have seen it since working in women’s football.”
Glasgow City ran out winners in the end but Nicola Campbell from Scottish Women’s football says the development of a title race shows how much other clubs have progressed.
However this year they are being closely challenged by Hibernian Ladies, with both teams unbeaten so far and level on points after 13 games. The clubs have already hammered out a 3-3 draw earlier this season and extra time was needed to separate the sides in last year’s League Cup final.
She said: “You see how well down in England how they promote. They’re obviously fortunate enough to be able to have some of their games streamed online and on television.”
The 23 year-old goalkeeper wants teams in the Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL) to harness the momentum from the summer and take the Scottish game to the next level.
