Glasgow City secure third successive domestic treble after Cup Final win



Glasgow City secured their third successive domestic treble following a 5-0 win over Spartans in the Women’s Scottish Cup Final on Sunday. Goals from Fiona Brown (2), Jo Love (2) and Denise O’Sullivan sealing the win.

Sunday’s success followed on from City’s midweek fight back and qualification to the quarter finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League.

Brown gave City the lead after 26 minutes with a curling strike from just inside the box.

Denise O’Sullivan made it 2-0 right on half time as she calmly picked her spot to fire past Rachel Harrison in the Spartans goals after being set up by Abbi Grant.

Into the second half, Brown made it 3-0 after Harrison parried a Susan Fairlie strike. Jo Love then buried a shot past Harrison from the edge of the box to make it 4-0.

Love was on target again in the closing minutes as she lobbed Harrison to make it 5-0 to the SWPL champions.

Speaking after City lifted the Scottish Cup, Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: “There is no doubt it was a motivated team today and I felt the adrenaline of Wednesday night gave us an extra push. We looked sharp, pressed the ball really well and I thought we were always a threat.

“We have now gone three full years in the Scottish Cup without losing a single goal and with a record like that you are always going to be in contention to lift the trophy. I would just like to thank all of the players, staff, fans and everyone associated with the club on a quite magnificent season.”
