Caley Gibb has joined Spartans from Hibernian Ladies U23’s. The 15 year-old defender has previously played for Rosyth United Boys, Hillfield Swift Boys, Bayside Girls and most recently Hibernian where she has scored six goals so far this season.
Caley spoke exclusively to Spartans FC Women “I am delighted, and very exited, to start training and playing at a higher level and I feel so honored to have been given this opportunity as my dream has always been to play in SWPL 1 and become a professional footballer.”
“I’ve taken the decision to join Spartans because it’s a great club and I know the club will develop me as a player but also a person. I feel Spartans will give me the opportunity to be the best I can be and will support me in hopefully being selected for Scotland’s Under 17’s Women’s National Squad.”
Spartans Manager Debbi McCulloch is set to reap further rewards from the investment made in the Club’s Player Pathway system by promoting Shannon Todd, from the clubs Development Team, ahead of the second half of the 2019 SWPL 1 season.
Shannon already has four SWPL 1 appearances to her name and has been training with the SWPL squad over the past couple of months and McCulloch is delighted with the progress Shannon has made.
Speaking of her call-up to the Women’s squad, winger Shannon Todd said, “I’m excited to making the progression from the Development Squad to the SWPL. I feel like I’ve came a long way since signing for Spartans and I’m looking forward to working hard with Debbi, and my new teammates, as we look to prepare for the second half of the season.”
