Going for the treble
Tomorrow, Glasgow City face Hibernian in the Scottish Cup Final at 3pm at Broadwood Stadium in Cumbernauld. Victory for City will mean the treble for the second successive season and will give City their 6th Scottish Cup in total, a Scottish record.
It has been a fantastic season so far for the Glasgow side. The League title was sewn up with 3 games remaining with City losing only seven goals in the SWPL all year, five of which came in the first four games. The title was won by the biggest ever points margin with City finishing 20 points clear of runners-up Hibernian, but despite winning so convincingly, Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black knows how tough Sunday’s match will be.
He said, “I believe it is fitting that we are playing Hibs on Sunday. They have been the strongest challengers to us all season and the national cup final deserves to be competed for by the two best sides. We won the League by a record margin this year despite the improvement made by the top six sides. This shows a remarkableconsistency by the players to maintain the standards set at this club.
“Hibs are a very talented team with lots of energy and pace, they have a good mix of experience and youth, and have players of international standard within their ranks.Of course we have been pre occupied with ourChampions League games and had little time to prepare for the Final. Meanwhile Hibs have been able to focus fully on the Cup Final, but this is what it is like at our club. The big games just keep coming and time and time again, our players step up to the mark. I hope the players can be inspired by the fabulous support they have had this season and finish off a magnificent season with the domestic treble.”
