Shelbourne are in Lithuania this morning to compete in the UEFA Women’s Champions League where they face Glasgow City with the winner playing either Gintra or Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Round One ties take place on Wednesday, September 6 with the SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division champions kicking off at 10am. The game will be played at the Siauliai central stadium – Šiauliai.

Currently second in the League Table this year just behind Peamount United, Noel King’s side have no shortage in experience and talent.

Glasgow City are a well-known team in Scottish women’s football and in this competition.

Emily Whelan, a former Shelbourne academy graduate, is a name that will be well-known around the camp, as well as ex-Peamount United defender Claire Walsh.

They are defensively hard to break down, having only conceded two goals in their first five games of the new season, where they currently sit top of the Scottish Women’s Premier League. They are current Champions as well.


Alex Kavanagh – The star midfielder has made herself a name that King just can’t leave out of the starting eleven. With precise passing and an eye for goal from long distance, Kavanagh could be the difference maker.

Jemma Quinn – The Reds’ main striker has no shortage in confidence which is exactly what you want in a forward. She has experience, a level head, and can pop up just when you need her.

Katie McCarn – The young attacker has been called up from the Under-19’s side to travel with the team. She has that no fear attitude and is capped at underage level. The young Meath woman is the perfect person to come off of the bench and make a difference when it is needed.

There is a live stream of the game being broadcast on with a €5 charge to watch at 10 AM.
