The Glens, holders of the Irish FA’s premier cup for women’s teams since 2018, came from behind to defeat main title rivals Cliftonville Ladies 2-1 to book their place in this year’s final, while the Strikers eased past Sion Swifts Ladies on the same scoreline. The semi-finals were staged in Bangor and Castledawson respectively at the end of August.
Prior to next week’s big game at the National Stadium the two teams will be battling it out in the final of the County Antrim FA Women’s Challenge Cup at Seaview this Saturday evening (9 October).
If the Glens, managed by Stephen Murray, win that one then the treble will be firmly in their sights, however Jonny Tuffey’s Strikers would no doubt love to collect silverware on their home patch this weekend as the first part of a cup double.
