New manager Fran Alonso’s first taste of Scotland’s top tier will come in Friday night football action as champions Glasgow City come to town for another competitive affair between the two.

The fixture will be rescheduled from the original date of Sunday, February 23, to Friday, February 21, with a 7:30pm kick-off at K-Park in East Kilbride, with the Celts looking for a strong home backing as the new era at the club gets well and truly underway.

Celtic came out on top the last time the two met, with the Hoops running out 4-1 winners at K-Park, as goals from Natalie Ross, Josephine Giard and Sarah Ewens put the league leaders to the sword, ending their 72-game unbeaten run in the SWPL and a 32-match league winning streak.

Ahead of the league opener, the Celts take on SWPL2 side Glasgow Women this weekend in their first SWPL Cup Group A game, before traveling to St Johnstone for the second tie on February 16.

Celtic play Glasgow Women in the first group game of the SWPL Cup at K-Park on Sunday, February 9 in a 2pm kick-off. Adults £5, concessions £3, under-16s free!
