Glasgow City beat Hibs to win Scottish Women's League Cup

Glasgow City celebrate with the Scottish Women's League Cup after beating Hibernian in the final.

Glasgow City won the Scottish Women's League Cup for the third time in a row with comfortable 3-0 win over Hibernian at Ainslie Park.

Suzanne Lappin's header from an Abbi Grant delivery gave City an early lead.

The holders were in control but took until the second half to double their advantage, Denise O'Sullivan burying a shot past Hannah Reid.

Jo Love nodded in Fiona Brown's cross to complete Glasgow's win and seal a ninth consecutive domestic trophy.

Head coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: "We knew there was a chance for us to be the first team to win this trophy three times in a row and that was obviously a huge motivation for us.

"I felt we performed very well on the night, passed the ball with a purpose and always looked a threat.

"Hibs had lost a couple of players in the build up to this game, but we were focused on making sure that never resulted in a dip in our own performance.

"It is particularly pleasing for the new players, some who have tasted winning a trophy for the first time and hopefully they go on to many more after this one.

"Everybody contributes towards success at this club and I would like to go on record and thank everyone for their efforts so far and I am sure they now know that hard work does pay dividends.

"It takes two teams to make a final and I thought Hibs competed very well."
