Sky Sports Cup Draw – Celtic FC Women drawn at home to Spartans

Celtic FC Women have been drawn at home against Spatans in the quarter finals of the Sky Sports Cup, otherwise known as League Cup which of course Celtic won last December, beating Glasgow City in the final at Firhill.

Celtic’s defence of the trophy got underway at the weekend with a 2-0 win away to Partick Thistle with the goals coming early in the match from Jacynta and Lucy Ashworth-Clifford. That win and clean sheet, can be added to six SWPL1 victories and with no goals lost to give Celtic a magnifent seven start to the season.

The Quarter-Final Cup tie against Spartans will take place on Sunday 23 October, presumably at The Excelsior Stadium in Airdrie.

In the other ties theRangers will play Motherwell, Kilmarnock are at home to Hibs and Glasgow Women will hist Glasgow City.

The form book therefore suggests that the big four – Celtic, theRangers, Hibs abd Glasgow City will all make the semi-finals. Some big games ahead in this competition and the ties could well be played when the men’s football is paused for the World Cup.
