Linfield's ladies had a week to remember as they booked their place in the IFA Challenge Cup and claimed the Co Antrim Challenge Cup.

The Blues defeated local rivals Glentoran in both games, although they were made to work hard for their Co Antrim title at Newforge.

The Glens struck first through Kelly Bailie's free kick just before half time, before Kirsty McGuinness levelled with a low drive on the hour mark.

Nicole Graham proved to be the hero as her strike sealed the win and a second successive Co Antrim title for Linfield.

The Blues' progression in the Irish Cup was more straightforward, with goals from Nicola Gray, Ashley Hutton, McGuinness and Graham cancelling out Lauren Wade's opener for the Glens and helping the hosts to a 4-1 victory.

They will meet Newry City Ladies in the final after they beat Sion Mills 2-1 in their last four tie.
