That the Parliament congratulates St Johnstone on its victory in the Scottish Cup Final and applauds Hibernian on contributing to an exciting and enjoyable football match; recognises that this victory represents the culmination of the most successful season ever in the history of the Perth club, with both the Scottish League Cup and the Scottish Cup now residing at McDiarmid Park; understands that St Johnstone has now become only the fourth club to win both trophies in the same season, and offers particular congratulations to Callum Davidson on a stunning debut season as a manager.
