Chris Roberts was today confirmed as the new first-team coach of Hibs Ladies following the resignation of Willie Kirk last month.

Roberts was assistant to Kirk for the past four years, helping guide the team to League Cup success along with three other cup final appearances, while they finished league runners-up last year.

Currently an SFA development officer in Edinburgh, Roberts has enjoyed coaching stints at Boroughmuir Thistle FC, Scotland’s Under-19 women’s squad, the SFA’s south-east Under-14 regional performance squad and Scotland Universities.

Completing Roberts’ management team will be Claire Ditchburn, who becomes first team assistant coach, and club coach co-ordinator Alfie Smith.
