Inverness Caledonian Thistle Women will look to make the third round of the Division One League Cup when they travel to Renfrew Ladies on Sunday.

After thrashing Stonehaven 7-2 in the first round two weeks ago, the team formerly known as Inverness City Ladies will be looking to make it three wins-in-a-row.

Manager Karen Mason says the League Cup is a competition which is more important than just advancing to the next round.

“We need to keep the momentum going. I would not go into any game and not put out my strongest team.

“It is important that we try and challenge for these cups.

“Cups don’t come around too often so we will take it seriously and keep our winning run going.”

ICT Women played their first match at home thrashing Montrose 7–0 at Millburn Academy.

Kayleigh Mackenzie was the player of the match as she came off the bench to score a hat trick. Hannah Gordon and Alex Andrews also impressed by both scoring twice to give them their first league win of the campaign.

ICT Women started the league season with a disappointing 5-1 defeat at Aberdeen. But the team have bounced back and have now scored 14 goals in their last two games.

Speaking about last week’s goalscorers Mackenzie, Gordon and Andrews, Mason says their contribution to the club will prove vital during this season in finding the goals that will bring them success.

“They are our front three at the moment and are racking in the goals. They are a force to be reckoned with.

“Having not known much about Montrose it was quite difficult to judge them as they had just been promoted from the division below.”

She added: “I was quietly confident after the performance against Stonehaven and that the goals were among us.

“I would never expect seven in a game, but I was more than pleased to come out with it at the end of the match.”
