Jean­field de­lighted to host glam­our cup-tie

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

JEAN­FIELD Swifts Ladies wel­come Scot­tish cham­pi­ons Glas­gow City to Perth on Sun­day in the League Cup.

The match kicks off at 4pm on the McDiarmid Park field­turf.

It’s a great draw for Jean­field as City have won the SWPL1 ti­tle 10 years run­ning and are sea­soned Cham­pi­ons League cam­paign­ers, reach­ing the last 16 in 2016.

They will list a host of in­ter­na­tional play­ers from home and abroad in their squad and the game will see the return to her home city for Lau­ren McMurchie.

Jean­field gen­eral man­ager Steve Grossi said: “When the cup was seeded, we re­ally wanted a home tie and are de­lighted to get the chance to wel­come a team with the Euro­pean stature of City. This will al­low our girls to test them­selves against a side full of in­ter­na­tional play­ers.

“It is mark of the level we now play at that we are up against a team like City and it is a huge deal for women’s foot­ball in the area to have them come here.

“We are now hop­ing to show­case the team and the club pos­i­tively in this fix­ture.”

DUSC Girls U/11s won all three of their games at a fes­ti­val in Dal­gety Bay. The young­sters did well in in­clement weather con­di­tions.

Jean­field’s Eilidh McIn­tyre takes on a Hibs Devel­op­ment de­fender dur­ing the Perth side’s 3-0 home friendly loss.
