Glentoran have won the Women's Irish Cup, beating Crusaders 2-0 in Friday night's final at Windsor Park.

Joely Andrews opened the scoring and another Northern Ireland international Lauren Wade claimed the second.

Rising star midfielder Andrews was named player of the match, a day after being called into the NI squad along with a string of team-mates for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against England at Wembley next Saturday and the following Tuesday at home to Austria. 

The Windsor win means the Glens have clinched the treble after also lifting the league title and County Antrim Cup.

That's an unprecedented clean sweep of trophies for the East Belfast side.
