Draw for Henson Youth Cup semi-finals takes place
Wednesday, 26 September 2012
The draw for the semi-finals of this season’s Henson Youth Cup at 17s, 15s and 13s levels took place at Hampden earlier today.
The draw was made by Maureen McGonigle, Executive Administrator of Scottish Women’s Football, accompanied by Myles Fitt, Campaigns Manager of Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Maureen and Myles were at Hampden to deliver a presentation on the ‘One Goal’ partnership between their organisations, pursued largely through the medium of Twitter, as part of Social Media Week Glasgow.
The event was streamed live on the internet via the Social Media Week website and the draw brought the morning’s proceedings to an end.
You can now access a video of the ‘One Goal’ presentation at the Social Media Week website here

The draw for the Henson Youth Cup semi-finals in the 13s section saw Glasgow City paired with either Falkirk FC or Deeside Girls, while Hamilton Caledonian play Hearts.
In the 15s competition, Hibernian will face Celtic, and Perth’s Letham Girls will take on Rangers.
Finally, in the 17s competition, Glasgow Girls meet Hibernian, while Rangers play Murieston United.
All Henson Youth Cup semi-final ties will take place at the Ravenscraig Regional Sports facility in Lanarkshire on Saturday 13 October in what promises to be a fantastic day of girls’ football action as the sides battle it out to reach the finals of their respective competitions.
