Women’s Irish Cup semi-finals set to be staged in Belfast and Bangor on 17 August

The venues for the semi-finals of this year’s Electric Ireland Women’s Challenge Cup have been confirmed.

Holders Glentoran Women will take on Comber Rec Ladies at Seaview on Saturday 17 August, with a 7.30pm start.

And Linfield Ladies and Crusaders Strikers will battle it out at Clandeboye Park in Bangor for a place in the final. The game will also be played on 17 August at 7.30pm.

Comber Rec Ladies, who have reached the last four of the competition for the first time, will be the underdogs when they face the Glens, who are currently leading the Danske Bank Women’s Premiership on goal difference from Linfield Ladies.

Reigning league champions Linfield, meanwhile, will be keen to reach the final again after losing out in last year’s decider to the Glens, however Crusaders Strikers, who have had a disappointing season by their standards in the league, will have other ideas.
