SSE Scottish Women's Cup

Supporting Scottish Women's Football

In 2018, we were approached by SSE and The Daily Record to create a trophy based on a winning design for Scottish Women’s Football. The design, by Ella Sharp, was inspired by the shape of an ice cream cone. The trophy was lifted for the first time by Hibernian in November 2018 and remains one of our proudest recent creations.

The History of Scottish Women's Football

In 1971, Scottish Women's Football (SWF), formerly the Scottish Women’s Football Association (SWFA) was formed. The first ever Scottish Women’s Cup was in 1970/71 with Stewarton Thistle defeating Aberdeen Prima Donnas 4-2.

Since then, the sport has grown significantly with over 17,000 girls and women playing in Scotland. SWF now runs a total of 66 competitions ranging from Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL) 1 to girls U13’s regional leagues and has over 700 active teams.

A Design Come to Life

We were so pleased that 11 year old Ella, the designer of the trophy, was so keen to be involved in the making process. A football fan, she was inspired by an ice cream cone on a warm summer's day and witnessed the work of the silversmiths, hand-engravers and polishers first hand. Speaking of the experience, Ella said, "I just can't believe that something I created has been made into such a beautiful figure. I'm absolutely delighted."
