Linfield To Face Newry In NIFL Premier Cup Final

Wednesday 29th July
Crusaders Strikers 2-4 Newry City
Glentoran Belfast United 0-2 Linfield

Celine Sees City Through Semis

Newry took the lead at Solitude though Celine Curtis and although Courtney Moore scored the equaliser before the break, Curtis restored the advantage 3 minutes into the second half.

Amy McGivern brought Crusaders back on level terms on the hour mark but 3 minutes later and Rayza Souza made it 3-2.

Curtis then completed both her hat-trick and effectively the victory with 22 minutes left.

Louise At The Double For Linfield

Glentoran held Linfield to a goalless first 45 minutes at Ashfield but Louise McFrederick eventually broke the deadlock.

The same player later sealed Linfield’s place in the final with a header from a corner in the last 5 minutes.
