Cork girls set to boost Glasgow City in cup final

Shine followed her fellow Leesider from Ireland to the Scottish champions this year and hasn’t stopped scoring. The 20-year-old bagged five against Rangers in last week’s concluding league fixture which City won 10-0.

Hibs pushed Glasgow hardest this season but Scott Booth’s side will be roaring favourites to secure a five-in-a-row of cups having won the title by six points.

O’Sullivan, voted Scottish Player of the Month in September, joined City in 2003 and helped them reach the quarter-final of last season’s Uefa Champions League where they were beaten by French giants Paris St-Germain.

Both players were part of Ireland’s squad which beat Portugal away in last month’s second Euro 2017 qualifier. Tomorrow’s final takes place at Ainslie Park, Edinburgh, kicking off at 2pm.
