Holders Celtic FC Women earned their place in the fourth round draw for the Women Scottish Cup with a magnificent seven nil win away to Ayr Utd yesterday afternoon at a cold but sunny Cumnock.
Veteran Celtic midfielder Natalie Ross got the early breakthrough and was unlucky not to get a hat-trick and there were also two wonderful goals from Amy Gallacher, the first a brilliant free kick that found the postage stamp corner of the Ayr goals and the second demonstrated as much bravery and determination to hammer home while knowing a late challenge was coming her way.
Watch the highlights below and the draw is live on The Scottish Cup’s You Tube channel at 5.30pm.
Celtic FC Women retained the Scottish Cup at the end of May 2023 with a 2-0 win over theRangers at Hampden. The year before the Ghirls defeated Glasgow City 3-2 (AET) at Tynecastle to win the Women’s Scottish Cup for the first time in Celtic’s history.
