Hibernian Ladies have signed 18-year-old attacking midfielder Shannon McGregor from Aberdeen Ladies.
Shannon comes to the club with a wealth of experience for a young player after being a stand-out player for Aberdeen, as well as being capped at various youth levels for Scotland.
She is delighted to have joined Hibernian Ladies, saying that it is a big move for her, and is targeting a successful debut season in green and white.
Shannon said: “It feels amazing to have signed for Hibernian. It’s a big move for me and it’s a big club to joining.
“The side have been really successful in the past, so coming to a club like this is a good move for me.
“It’s great to know that the coaching staff here have been watching me throughout the seasons when I was at Aberdeen.
“My aims are to try to get a good amount of game time, which I feel will be tough as the squad are strong and it’s a battle to get into the starting team. I want to be as creative as all the other players here and do my best to help the club.”
Head Coach Kevin Milne also expressed his delight after Shannon put pen to paper on her deal at Hibernian after fending off interest from other clubs.
He feels that adding a player of her calibre into the squad will improve the side’s chances at fighting for the SWPL title in 2018.
Speaking about the signing, Kevin said: “It’s really good news to be adding Shannon into our squad.
“I think she adds real quality to the squad and she will strengthen us as we strive to win the league title.
“Shannon was a signing target before I was even at the club, and once I was told about it I wanted to follow through on it as she is an excellent player.
“She had a lot of interest from other clubs and the fact that she chose us is great.”
