FIVE-STAR ACES HAVE IT DON AND DUSTED.
The Cove gaffer watched them crush Aberdeen 5-1 at McDiarmid Park to lift the women's Scottish Cup and boasted: Men couldn't do any better.
Napier raved about Nicky Grant's second goal - an 18-yard rocket that gave the Dons keeper no chance.
The boss beamed: "That was something special. You just wouldn't see that in men's football in Scotland.
"I teach my girls to play the ball on the deck. I teach them how to pass and that's what made the first half tremendous."
Pauline Harvey set Cove up with the opener - and the goals kept coming.
Grant grabbed the second and added No.3 from a Harvey cross. Then Pauline Martin fired them four-up before the break with a blistering shot from 25 yards.
Seven minutes after the break, Arlene Davidson got clear inside the box to make it five as Cove ran riot.
The Dons got a consolation goal minutes later from Jackie Buchan.
Napier pointed out: "This is our second trophy, but we didn't do too well in the league - that will be our priority next season."
