Hibs Girls footballer Morgan Turner has had a week to remember. The 14-year-old from Galashiels picked up a cheque for £300 from the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust last Wednesday to assist with her travel costs with the Easter Road under 15 side. And 24 hours later she made the League Cup final in style after the Hibees defeated city rivals Hearts 3-0 in the semi-finals. Morgan will be hoping to claim her second League Cup in a row, after winning the same competition as well as the Scottish Cup with Hibs Under 15s last season, alongside fellow Braw Lass Ellie Fairgrieve. The Galashiels Academy pupil travels across Scotland to play matches, and also trains with the South East Regional Squad. She was also selected last year for a Scotland Under 15s training camp. Others to pick up grants from the Trust this month were Galashiels Judo Club members Holly Shepherd and Ewan Jones who received £150 each, footballer Aiden Black from Stow (£200), Eyemouth badminton player Jodie Black (£150), Ednam highland dancer Bethany Smail and Ancrum downhill mountainbiker Harris Mackie (£100).
