Jubilant scenes at Rathmore as Linfield Ladies retain the title

By Q Radio Sport

Linfield Ladies have retained the Danske Bank Women's Premiership, beating Newry City Ladies 4-1 in a title decider last night.

Kirsty McGuinness and Alison Smyth both scored twice to kick-off the champagne celebrations at Rathmore.

Q Radio Sport spoke with a jubilant Blues boss David Welshman:

Team captain, Sarah Venney, paid tribute to Newry for pushing the title race to the wire:

Now Sarah and co. have their sights set on a hat-trick of titles.

In the other fixture last night, Sion Swifts beat Ballymena 10-0 to move above Newry and finish the league in second place, three points behind Linfield.

Sion and Newry will go head-to-head in the last game of the season, the Electric Ireland Women's Challenge Cup final, at Windsor Park next Thursday, September 7th.
