Glasgow City win third successive League Cup final


Glasgow City secured their third SWPL League Cup in a row on Wednesday night following a 3-0 win over Hibernian, thanks to goals from Suzanne Lappin, Denise O’Sullivan and Jo Love.

Suzanne Lappin opened the scoring after only nine minutes when she headed past Hannah Reid in the Hibs goal following an Abbi Grant cross.

Despite dominating proceedings for the rest of the first half, City were unable to add to their lead until after the break when Denise O’Sullivan buried a shot into the back of net after a Lappin flick on.

City and Scotland midfielder Jo Love made it number three midway through the second period as she headed home a short corner whipped into the box by Fiona Brown.

After the match City Head Coach, Eddie Wolecki Black said: “We knew there was a chance for us to be the first team to win this trophy three times in a row and that was obviously a huge motivation for us.

“I felt we performed very well on the night, passed the ball with a purpose and always looked a threat. Hibs had lost a couple of players in the build up to this game, but we were focused on making sure that never resulted in a dip in our own performance.

“It is particularly pleasing for the new players, some who have tasted winning a trophy for the first time and hopefully they go on to many more after this one. Everybody contributes towards success at this club and I would like to go on record and thank everyone for their efforts so far and I am sure they now know that hard work does pay dividends. It takes two teams to make a final and I thought Hibs competed very well.”
