Football: Hamill is hero at the double; Cumbernauld Utd 5 Clyde 0.

PAULINE HAMILL scored a great double as United lifted the Sports Connection League Cup at Airdrie on Saturday.

The way Hamill beat three or four opponents for each of her goals was no suprise as the skill level between Scotland's two most powerful teams kept the 500 crowd on their toes.

Mandy Burns who, with twin Tracy, lit up a dismal afternoon for injury- hit Clyde, said: "We are never going to match the men and we are not looking to. We are trying to get to the highest standard of football we can and maintain it. We enjoy playing good football and more people are enjoying watching it.

Cumbernauld coach Bill Munro said: "Long term we want the game to be full time.

"In Italy, women's matches can draw crowds of up to 6,000. A professional league has to be the long- term aim."
