31 Jul 2022

The Danske Bank Women’s Premiership resumes on Monday night following a two-month break to accommodate the European Championships.

13 of the league’s stars were on show for Northern Ireland while the break from league action also saw Sion Swifts Ladies lift the Jordan’s Gift Women’s Premiership League Cup – defeating Cliftonville Ladies in the final.

The league returns with two matches on Monday as defending champions Glentoran Women travel to Lisburn Ladies as Mid Ulster Ladies play host to Linfield Ladies.

Seven rounds of action in the league have been completed with seven more to follow prior to the league splitting into a top four and bottom four, with teams playing rival sides in that section twice more to complete the campaign.

Mid Ulster Ladies vs Linfield Ladies, Mid Ulster Sports Arena, 7.45pm
Linfield Ladies sit fourth in the standings and will be hoping of a repeat of their opening day victory over Mid Ulster Ladies.

The Blues ran out six-goal victors that evening as Rebecca Bassett netted a hat-trick with Katie Dickson, Keri Halliday and Mia Fitzsimmons also among the scorers.

That was the first ever top-flight meeting between the sides, as Mid Ulster hope to build on their one point – gained against Derry City Women – as the campaign resumes.

Lisburn Ladies vs Glentoran Women, Bluebell Stadium, 8pm
Glentoran Women trail league leaders Cliftonville Ladies by five points and will be hoping to take advantage of the Reds not playing this gameweek as they travel to Lisburn Ladies.

The Glens beat the newly-promoted club on the opening day of the season as Joely Andrews, Nadene Caldwell, Casey Howe and Caragh Hamilton all found the net.

That was Lisburn’s first ever top-flight match and they have impressed this campaign with four points to date, scoring eight goals in their seven matches – which they will be hopeful of building on in this encounter at the Bluebell.
