City league Win and Euro Draw News...

City move six points clear

Glasgow City returned to their spiritual home of Glasgow Green on Thursday evening for the encounter with Hamilton.  The match officially a Hamilton home fixture was played in the bright evening sunshine though it wasn't quite a mid-summer's night dream with Hamilton packing the middle of the field and City struggling to find an opening.  Leanne Ross however made the breakthrough from the penalty spot mid way through the first half and in the secon d great defense splitting passes from Leanne Ross and Emma Woolley set up Lisa Evans and Jane Ross to extend City's lead and they finished up 4-0 winners.  Earlier in the day the draw was made for the UEFA Woman's Champios League and City are off to Serbia in the first group stage 

The following day Glasgow City unveiled the new strip and brand new logo which will be worn by the team  for the first time in the UEFA Women’s Champions League when it kicks off in August.  At UEFA Headquarters in Nyon, City were drawn against Serbian Champions ZFK Spartak Jaffa, Mosta FC of Malta and KL Klaksvik of the Faroe Islands and go into the qualification group stages as top seeds for the first time in their history.  Retail giants Greaves Sports hosted the event as they proudly sponsor Scotland’s best women’s football team for the fourth consecutive year.

Glasgow City’s General Manager, Laura Montgomery stated, “We are really excited about the Champions League draw and Europe continues to be our main focus for success each season. Whilst we remain one of the few amateur clubs in the competition, we constantly compete and challenge with some of the best fully professional sides in Europe and we are confident of doing well yet again this year. We are delighted with our new kit. It is the first time we have opted for such a bright orange, but we felt it was an exciting new look and combined well with what we feel is almost the rebirth of the club with our brand new logo. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors for their continued and overwhelming support.” 

Commenting on the continued partnership with City, Greaves Director of Communications, Stephen McCranor, said: “We’re delighted to continue our support of women’s football by backing Scotland’s top team. We’ve been working closely with adidas to make sure the girls got the best of kit and they were happy with the design as when you’re representing the country on the European stage as they do it’s important to look your best.”

Also at the launch were Glasgow based design and advertising agency, Sevenfive Creative who worked with Glasgow City to create the new club identity, reflected in their brand new club logo and badge. Director Craig Bickett said "The existing design needed to be updated to reflect Glasgow City's position as Scotland's premier women's football club.We felt it was important the new identity should be bold and confident but also include a touch of Glasgow in there as well.The detail in design takes inspiration from Glasgow Icon Charles Rennie Mackintosh to help give the design a uniquely Glaswegianlook. We're delighted with the final design and hope it will proudly sit on the Glasgow City's strip for years to come."
