Glasgow Girls lift two trophies as both 16s and 18s win ScottishPower Youth Challenge Cup, while Musselburgh Windsor won the 14s trophy.

A Super Sunday of action at Ochilview Park in Stenhousemuir was viewed by around 3,000 people on the SWF’s YouTube channel live stream, throughout the day.

Musselburgh Windsor 14s commanded the first game, winning 6-1 against Hamilton Academical, then Glasgow Girls and Penicuik Athletic played out a gripping seven-goal thriller, Bailey Cooper scoring late into injury time to break Penicuik hearts. In the third game, goals from Oluwadara Ositelu and Isla Leahy were enough to grab the 16s title against Giffnock SC.

New sponsor ScottishPower attended, with Chief Executive Keith Anderson joined by Public Health Minister Jenni Minto MSP in awarding the 14s trophy. The honour then went to Claire Divers,  Partnerships and Funding Project Office Coordinator at SP Energy Networks then Engineering apprentice Amy Buchanan to hand out the medals in the other games.
