Last updated : 23 June 2024 By Steve Forbes

Hibs Women have announced their latest signing of the summer.

The Hibees have landed signing number three, with the arrival of striker Kathleen McGovern.

21-year-old McGovern has signed a two-year-deal at Easter Road after crossing the city divide from Hearts Women, where she scored 11 goals in 19 games last season.

McGovern has also previously played for Celtic and German side SC Sand in the Frauen Bundesliga.

Speaking to the official club website, Kathleen said:

McGovern said:

"I am delighted to be signing for Hibs. As soon as I spoke to Grant, I knew the correct decision for me was to come here. He was really positive about the ambition and where the club is going, which is something that I want to be a part of."

Hibs boss Grant Scott added:

“We're excited to welcome Kathleen to Hibernian, I've followed the progress of her career following her breakthrough season at Celtic and admiring her play since then. Her talent and forward-thinking play will be a great asset to the team moving forward. We look forward to seeing her linking up with our other forward players and contributing to our success in the seasons to come."


Signing number three for Grant Scott.

The Women lost the outstanding Jorian Baucom this summer, and they have moved to replace her signing McGovern from the Jambos.

She scored goals last season when given the chance, let's hope she continues that in the green.
