Sion Swifts captain Kendra McMullan says it "means everything" for the Strabane team to progress to the Women's League Cup decider.

McMullan netted as the Swifts beat Cliftonville 3-1 in Monday night's semi-final to set up a showdown with Glentoran on 28 June.

"This team has been working so hard and we have our reward," she said.

"Confidence is high - we're also sitting second in the league so we're in a good position all round."

The north-west outfit defeated holders and league leaders Linfield in the quarter-finals before coming from behind to beat the Reds at Solitude.

"We were a bit slow at the start but at half-time the boys told us to up the tempo and we came out and did that in the second half.

"It's amazing just to get a goal and amazing to be in a final - it means everything and these are the things you aim for when you start the season."

Glentoran earned their place in the final thanks to a 1-0 victory over Belfast rivals Crusaders Strikers.
