Posted : 22nd September 2019 at 23:06:48

Linfield went down to a 1-0 defeat in the Windsor Park ‘Big Two’ Irish Cup Final on Saturday night.

The only goal of the game came as early as the 5th minute when McMaster scored from close range.

The Linfield team line up was

1 - Lauren Perry
19 - Abbie Magee
3 - Louise McFrederick
5 - Ashley Hutton
14 - Kelsie Burrows
16 - Clare Timoney
18 - Rebecca McKenna
97 - Chloe McCarron
8 - Casey Howe
26 - Caitlin McGuinness
11 - Kirsty McGuinness


9 - Rebecca Bassett - replaced Louise McFrederick
2 - Mia Fitzsimmons - replaced Clare Timoney
17 - Hayley O’Donnell
25 - Naomi Donnan
12 - Anna McCleary

It was a game with both defences largely on top and few clear cut chances.

In the closing stages Linfield pressed and pressed but were unable to break down the stubborn Glentoran rearguard.

A close, hard fought game with Glentoran coming out on top, seeing out the game thanks to their early goal.

For Linfield, attention and full focus quickly turns to a huge game on Wednesday night with the final league game taking place at 8pm at the Brandywell against Derry City.

Linfield have to win by a 7 goal margin to retain the Danske Bank NIFL Premier league title.

Anything less and the title goes to Sion Swifts.
