Women's Challenge Cup

League champions Glentoran Women secured the double by defeating Cliftonville Ladies in the final of the Electric Ireland Women’s Challenge Cup this evening.

Cliftonville bossed the first half, but Glentoran turned on the style after the break and scored three goals without reply to retain the trophy in front of 1700 spectators at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.

The Glens’ fifth consecutive Irish FA Women’s Challenge Cup success thwarted Cliftonville’s efforts to secure a cup treble this year.

Glentoran Women (previously Glentoran Belfast United) are the most successful side in the competition, having won it eleven times, with Linfield Women (previously Linfield Ladies) the next most successful with three victories.
