Hearts star wants to see interest in women's football sustained after record-breaking crowd watches

Hearts midfielder Cailin Michie insists the two Edinburgh clubs cannot rest on their laurels as they look to continue growing women’s football in the wake of a record-breaking attendance at Sunday’s Edinburgh derby.

8,033 fans moved through the turnstiles at Easter Road as Crystal Thomas’ late equaliser ensured a point apiece in the SWPL 1

The attendance in Leith smashed the previous mark for a women’s domestic game in Scotland, which previously sat at 5,512. The game was heavily marketed by both clubs with no men’s fixtures for several weeks due to the cinch Premiership shut down, and Michie wants to see this momentum sustained.
