City secure 13th title in a row in emphatic style
Glasgow City completed their 13th consecutive Scottish Building Society SWPL title in a row tonight with a thumping win over Motherwell in Wishaw.
With four games in the season remaining, City required just one more win to secure the League title and they achieved that in style thrashing Motherwell 10-0 in front of a strong crowd on a damp wintry night. Despite poor pitch conditions, City showed why they have been Champions for so long, with a professional performance, dominating the match from start to
Top scorer Kirsty Howat got her team off the mark after only 5 minutes, before defender Jenna Clark made it 2-0 on 19 minutes. Howat then netted again, closely followed by strikes from team mates Megan Foley, Clare Shine, Leanne Ross, Leanne Crichton, Jordan McLintock and a double from Hayley Sinclair.
The win maintains City 100% league record this season and ensures the pressure is off ahead of their League match against second placed Hibernian on Sunday, with City’s all important last 16 second leg Champions League tie with Brondby looming next Thursday.
Commenting on the club’s achievement, co-founder and Club Manager Laura Montgomery said, “I am so incredibly proud of this team. It is so hard to win any title, but to do it year after year reflects the Champions mentality at this club. A huge congratulations to Scott, the staff and all of our amazing players. For some it is their first title, for others like our remarkable
Captain, Leanne Ross it is their thirteenth title. A feat which I am sure will never be repeated by anyone, anywhere, it is astounding. The players work incredibly hard to push themselves to continually improve and push boundaries. I am very proud indeed, of every single one of them.”
City will be presented with the League title at their last home game of the season on 17th November at Petershill Park.
