The top two teams in Scottish women’s football go head-to-head for the last time this season as Glasgow City and Hibernian Ladies meet at the Tony Macaroni Arena in the 2017 Scottish Women’s Cup final. Kick-off is 4.10pm with admission on the gate.
For Hibernian it’s an opportunity to exact some measure of revenge after they lost out in the SWPL1 title race in the home straight for the third successive season leaving Glasgow City to take full advantage as they claimed a memorable 11th title in a row – the coup de grâce being inflicted when the two teams met at Ainslie Park earlier this month and City secured a 3-0 win to ensure they could not be caught with a game to spare.
The league title in the bag Glasgow City ended the SWPL1 season undefeated last weekend when dispatching Aberdeen by three goals to nil at Heathryfold Park. Meanwhile Hibernian beat Spartans 3-0 and while City may have taken most of the plaudits this season they haven’t had it all their own way. A 1-0 defeat to their Edinburgh rivals on 30th April, in the semi-finals of the SWPL Cup, saw Hibernian go on to claim the first silverware of the season when they beat Celtic in the final. And you can be sure having had to settle for second place in the league once again the team from Ainslie Park will give it their all this afternoon as they seek to repeat their feat of last season of achieving a cup double.
Stand by for what should be an enthralling game of football. It’s Glasgow v Edinburgh, and only one captain can be holding aloft the final silverware of the women’s football season come this evening. But will it be Leanne Ross or Joelle Murray? All roads lead to the Tony Macaroni Arena to find out.
Kick-off is at 4.10pm.
Admission on the gate. Adults £5/Concessions £2.
