Evening News readers Sheryl McKenzie and Alison Alexander have each won a place for their mums at Utilita Energy’s Mother’s Day table for Hibs’ clash with Dumbarton at Easter Road on March 18.

We asked Hibbies to tell us why their mum should have the chance to enjoy a great day’s hospitality and Sheryl wrote: “My mum Gail deserves a seat at the Mother’s Day table for everything she does, not just for me, but my sisters too – from looking after our kids so we can go out to work and, of course, looking after them every Saturday so we can watch Hibs play!”

Meanwhile, our final prize winner, Alison, penned this special tribute to her mum Catherine McRae.

“My wee darlin mammy Catherine, who means the world to me,

“Deserves a special treat with the Hibs she loves to see.

“Sun or rain or blustery day, she makes it there to see captain Gray.

“To watch them win and hear the roar and she joins in – she’s 84!

“So for my special mammy I just want to say “A very Happy Mother’s Day and have a very Hibby Day.”
