Marathonbet, the official sponsor of the Hibees, has teamed up with the Capital club to create a competition where teams from the region’s amateur football scene can land Lennon’s services.

To book time with the Easter Road head coach, they will have to send a message and record a two-minute video explaining why they should win the prize.

Teams have until Monday 20th March to post submit their entries to Marathonbet, either via Twitter using the handle @marathonbet or through their official Facebook page. Players and coaches are being encouraged to get creative to grab the spoils.

David Ramage, secretary for the Lothian & Edinburgh Amateur Football Association, said: “This is an excellent competition and a great opportunity for one of our amateur teams to benefit from a once-in-a-lifetime coaching session from somebody so highly regarded as Neil Lennon.

“I’d encourage all of our teams to enter and give themselves the best possible chance of winning.”
