Glasgow City defeat Celtic to head into the Henson Scottish Cup Final


Glasgow City stormed into the Henson Scottish Cup Final following a 3-0 win over Celtic at Ravenscraig tonight.

Following on from their league victory over the Hoops last Sunday, City opened the scoring through ex-Celt Emma Woolley when she latched on to a shot from Emma Mitchell which Fay in the Celtic goal could only turn on to the bar.

It was 2-0 before half time after Eilish McSorley converted, after Kat Lindner had cut the ball back from the goal line.

Substitute Danica Dalziel ensured City’s progression into the final when she scored in the last few minutes to make it 3-0.

Commenting on City’s progression into the final, assistant first team coach Donald Jennow said: “The objective of tonight was to get to the final which we have done successfully. We set a target of maximising our fixtures up to the end of the season, and so far we have achieved what we set out and we aim to push on further from here. It was not our best performance tonight by any means but we can take positives from it. Once again the girls showed they can perform in pressure situations and we are delighted to be in the Cup Final.”

City will know their opponents after tomorrow evening when Hibernian take on Celtic Reserves in the other semi-final. The final will take place at Toryglen on Saturday 12th November.
