Glasgow City will officially collect the SWPL title this Sunday when they are presented with the SWPL trophy for the 8th consecutive season, although the players can be forgiven for having their minds somewhere else.
City wrapped up the League with 3 games remaining, but have had to wait until their next home match before receiving the brand new SWPL trophy. That match is this Sunday against Hibernian, but having lost 2-0 away to Polish Champions Medyk Konin in the last 32 of the Champions League on Wednesday past, City appear more focused on overturning that deficit than Sunday’s game against second placed Hibs.
City Head Coach Eddie Wolecki said, “Sunday’s game is significant for one thing and that is the fact that we will be presented with the League title after the match. Now that the title has been won the priorities of our club have changed. The Scottish Cup and Champions League need our full attention. We spent 2 hours on a bus before flying home on Thursday evening and I gave the players the rest of the week off to rest and recuperate. We hope against Hibs that everyone can enjoy the game and watch two attack minded sides play an open match. We can then very importantly turn our attention to Wednesday and our return match against Medyk Konin.”
Glasgow City take on Hibernian in the SWPL on Sunday 12th October at Airdrie Excelsior Stadium, 2.30pm. City then face Medyk Konin in the Champions League on Wednesday 15th October at Airdrie Excelsior Stadium, 7.30pm. Entry is £5 Adult, £2 Kids.
