There was a Western Isles triumph for the women's football team in Glasgow yesterday (Saturday October 12th).

The score was 3-0 to WI against a Young Glasgow City FC team full of very talented future stars, said the WI team on Twitter.

They added: "Thank you Mòd Ghlaschu 2019 for inviting us to be part of this historic day.

This match was the first ever Female Mod Cup Game and was held on Glasgow Green.

Euan Macleod, Head Coach of the Lewis & Harris/Western Isles Women's Football Squads, explained earlier in the week how the match came about, saying: “We were approached by the Mod Committee a number of weeks ago about the possibility of playing the first ever Females Mod Cup Football Match.

“We are very excited by the prospect of playing in Glasgow and very flattered that the Committee have made this decision to highlight the Women's game.”

“For the game we have decided to limit the amount of Island based players as most of them are still in school and have had a long tiring season.

“We do, however, have a large number of Island Girls playing football in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Glasgow who are coming together to pull on the Western Isles shirt once again."
