THE TENSION is building ahead of the Coca-Cola Women’s Cup Final on Friday (7.30pm) when Crusaders Strikers take on Glentoran Belfast United at Mourneview Park.
Crues goalkeeper Angela Platt knows the challenge the Glens pose for her side. She said: “We know Glentoran will be a difficult game; it’s been one win apiece in terms of the head-to-head this season and matches between the two sides are always tough encounters, especially this season’s ones. There’s no doubt that on paper Glentoran are a fantastic side. But we have a hard-working team who work hard for each other. That’s not to say we don’t have skillful players because we certainly do and we just hope they can come to the fore on the night. But ultimately it’ll come down to who wants it most and can perform on the night.”
Glentoran’s Demi Vance is hungry for success this season after missing out on the league title. She said: “Obviously with missing out on the league we’ll be out to get the win and ensure we don’t end the season empty-handed and to show that we’re the better team. Anything can happen in Cup football, especially in a Final. We have a lot of experience throughout our squad though. A lot of the girls have a lot of experience and have played in plenty of Cup Finals for the Glens down the years. Hopefully we can go out and end the season on a high!”
Entry to the Coca-Cola Women’s Cup Final is £4 for adults and £2 concession.
