"A day that we will never forget is coming"; Alonso's reminder to Celtic supporters

Celtic FC Women manager Fran Alonso is renewing his push for a bumper Celtic Park crowd for the upcoming match between his team and Hibernian in SWPL1 this Saturday.

Celtic promised last summer that season ticket holders would gain free entry to a women’s league match at Paradise itself.

The deadline for STH tickets has come and gone, but fans can still snap up seats in the North Stand for a modest price of £8 for adults and £4 for concessions.

Alonso said on social media today: “6 Days until we return to Paradise 😍, but this time in front of our fans, a day that we will never forget is coming!”

Sections 104 to 106 of the stadium have already sold out, but seats remain in 101 to 103 and 107 to 109.

Given it’s the international break, everyone is hoping that Celtic fans looking for their weekend fix of football turn up to Paradise and take in the game.

Alonso’s side are out of the running for the title this year, and even a European spot, but with a League Cup in the bag and a Scottish Cup still to play there are plenty of excellent reasons to show support for the project.

Chloe Craig scored twice over the weekend in a 6-1 rout of Motherwell and said after the match: “Everybody wants to be on the scoresheet. Even if you get a tap-in, as long as it’s in the back of the net that’s all that matters to us.

“With the game that we know we’re going into at Celtic Park, it just lifts us up and hypes us up that little bit more. Hopefully we start off better and finish the game in the first half.”

It should be a massive day for the team!
