Belfast Celtic and St Mirren met in a friendly match on International Women’s Day in 2019, now the two clubs are entering a partnership together.

The aim is to develop a player pathway between the two clubs and also engage in many programmes to developing senior and youth players.

Kate Cooper (St Mirren Women Head Coach) said: “At St. Mirren FC Women’s and Girls’ Academy it’s important we develop positive relationships with other clubs determined to provide their players with opportunities to develop both as a person and a player. I have no doubt as our partnership with Belfast Celtic develops we will see players and coaches given the opportunity to gain valuable experiences that will ensure they can fulfil their potential and become drivers for the future development of the sport. We are all excited about the possibilities and potential of this new partnership.”

Ryan Caddell (Belfast Celtic Ladies Head Coach) said: “We are very excited to be entering into this partnership with such a top club in St Mirren Women. Both teams have progressed massively in the two years since we played both on and off the pitch and we hope to continue to grow together over the coming years and provide our women and girls with some amazing experiences and opportunities along the way. ”

St Mirren currently compete in the SWFL Championship South, while Belfast Celtic play in NIWFA Division 1, which is hoping to get under way in May.
