Current Cup champions Hillhead/Jordanhill, suffered their first defeat of the season, and in turn lost their chance to defend their Sarah Beaney title, as they went down 11-0 to Murrayfield Wanderers at home at the weekend.

Murrayfield Wanderers vice-captain Sarah Quick, said:

“The Sarah Beaney Cup means a great deal to our club, and is a competition very close to our hearts as it is named in memory of one of our former players.

“We’re extremely excited to have reached the Cup final, which is a great showcase for the women’s game in Scotland, and a chance for us to play in front of a large and energetic crowd.

“We lost 21-22 to Hillhead/Jordanhill in our last league match of this year, so this added to the incentive, as we looked not only to bag ourselves a spot in the final but to settle a score.

“We have a very young squad at the moment and it was great to see the team’s hard work at training pay off, especially with some of the less experienced players really stepping up to the mark.”

 Their opposition Melrose, defeated RHC Cougars, 24-22, in a very tight encounter at The Greenyards, to secure their spot in the Cup final. This was another huge triumph for the club whose men’s side had secured the RBS Premiership title less than 24 hours previously.
