With the first silverware of the season up for grabs, Cliftonville Ladies will battle it out against Sion Swifts Ladies with both looking to lift the trophy for the first time in both their history.

Jordan’s Gift is a registered charity that was established in 2016 with a proud background in supporting young people in Northern Ireland. The charity was established in remembrance of the late Jordan Kennedy to keep alive his memory by helping others.

Many young people, some with disability, some with social disadvantage have received ‘Gifts’ from Jordan, not only through awards and funding but through the gift of life through the donation of organs following his sudden passing at just 22 years of age.
