Team’s Up – Fran Alonso makes three changes for Balmoral challenge

Fran Alonso has made three changes to the side that thrashed Hamilton Accies last Sunday as the Celtic FC Women manager continues with the squad rotation strategy that has served the Spaniard so well this season.

Out goes the skipper Kelly Clark, summer signing Menglu and veteran midfielder Natalie Ross and in comes Irish international defender Claire O’Riordan, Scotland midfielder Lisa Robertson and summer signing Liz Fergusson who is rewarded for scoring her first Celtic goal last weekend, with her first touch after coming off the bench.

Caitlin Hayes captains Celtic today against Aberdeen as Kelly Clark drops to the bench.

Today’s Celtic side is Tajonar in goals, a back three of Craig, Hayes (c) and O’Riordan, a midfield four of Ashworth-Clifford, Robertson, Otto and Shen with the front three of Jacynta, Larisey and Fergusson.

On the bench for Celtic this afternoon are Ross, Gallacher, Chance, Clark, Bowie, Burchill, Menglu, Dobbins and Marwaha.

Kick-off is at 4pm.
