Highlands and Islands: Sutherland and Buckie Women raring to go for league cup closing
The ultimate, which will likely be performed at Station Park in Nairn, will see the league’s top-two come up towards one another within the first alternative to win silverware this season.
On their path to the ultimate, Sutherland seen off Inverness Caley Thistle Growth and Brora Rangers, whereas Buckie beat Clachnacuddin and Orkney.
Sutherland and Buckie Women Growth are each raring to go forward of the Highlands and Islands League Cup closing on Sunday.
The league cup closing is just not unfamiliar to Sutherland, who lifted the trophy final season for the primary time.
Their head coach John Smith is coy in regards to the Golspie outfit’s possibilities this 12 months, having been defeated 4-3 by Buckie of their final league encounter in April.
However he does imagine there will likely be little to separate the 2 groups if Sutherland present up on the day.
Smith mentioned: “It’s the second 12 months that we’ve reached the ultimate – the ladies have finished nicely to get there and now we’re wanting ahead to it.
“Buckie will most likely be the favourites, they’ve had a implausible begin to the league.
“They’ve some good gamers and play some actually good soccer, so it’s one thing we’ve needed to have a very good have a look at. We’ll attempt to counter that on the day and hopefully we are able to play the soccer that we need to play.
“They’ve bought the dedication and the flexibility – it’s simply on the day ensuring that every thing clicks for us.”
Smith hopes that his aspect can use the motivation of retaining the cup to their benefit on Sunday towards Buckie.
He added: “To win the cup two years on the trot could be actually one thing good.
“I’ll stress to the gamers that to make two finals is one thing to be happy with, after which to possibly win two finals – it’s not one thing that occurs all that usually.
“I’ll make certain they’re up for it, however I don’t assume they’ll want a lot persuading from me.”
This Sunday’s closing would be the first Buckie Women have performed in because the membership was fashioned 5 years in the past.
