Video: Hibs Strikers James Keatings and Jason Cummings Try Out ‘Football Bowls’

Scottish football teams are always looking for new and innovative ideas for how to improve the game in this country and it appears Hibs might have a new and exciting concept.

Not content with being the Scottish Cup holders, it appears the Edinburgh club are also aiming to invent a whole new splint sport after introducing the world to ‘football bowls’.

As they revealed on the club’s official Twitter page this morning, strikers Jason Cummings and James Keatings have been trying out the slightly peculiar concept at the club’s training ground and, we have to admit, it does look rather fun:

The game will soon become Hibs’ new half-time challenge at Easter Road, with supporters able to apply to take part on the club’s official website.

We have no idea if this will catch on and be a success, but after beating Hearts earlier this week, the club could’ve launched just about any new concept this week and got away with it.

What do you make of the game? Would you play it?
