Luke Shanley joins some of the biggest names in Scottish women's football at Hampden Park.

Claire Williamson hopes Hibernian Ladies can go one better this season and beat red-hot title favourites Glasgow City.

City have won 10 Scottish top-flight titles on the trot, with Hibs finishing in second position in three of the last four seasons.

But Hibs did manage to complete a memorable double over their fierce rivals, winning last season's League Cup courtesy of an added-time Lizzie Arnot winner, before beating City on penalties to lift the Scottish Cup last November.

The new Scottish Women's Premier League 1 season begins on Sunday and defender Williamson says Hibs will take heart from last season's cup heroics.

"We've always got belief in ourselves, and those two wins - knowing that you've done it - gives you that greater belief that it is possible," she told Tuesday's Sportswomen show on Sky Sports News HQ.

"I think everyone in the league has definitely strengthened - Rangers, Celtic, everyone has improved, so it is going to be a really competitive league this year.

"We'd love to win the league. Its shows your consistency and we'd love to take our cup wins into our league performances."

City have added Lauren Silver to their squad for next season and the versatile Jamaica international insists her side will do their utmost to make it 11 straight title victories.

"I think there is pressure [on us] but we're not going to let it get to us," she said.

"We are just going to focus on working during every practice session and going out on the field and performing and just doing the best that we can."
