Advantage Rossvale in SWPL 2 play-off race, as Forfar Farmington and Bonnyrigg Rose secure SWF League One play-off places

Glasgow side Rossvale have gained the upper hand in the race for a play-off spot to gain entry to SWPL 2.

In a last Sunday for the Scottish Women’s Championship which saw Livingston lift the trophy, Renfrew Ladies were beaten by Ayr United while Rossvale beat the champions 2-1 at the Tony Macaroni arena to move into second.

Renfrew now face their rivals at home on Tuesday night knowing only a win will do, in a match rearranged due to an abandonment of the game on the 14th May because of a serious injury to Renfrew player Aimee Morrison.

The side which finishes second will face Stirling University at Broadwood Stadium on Sunday 4th June for a place in the SWPL 2.

Elsewhere in the Championship, Dryburgh Athletic and Inverness Caledonian Thistle ended their seasons on a high with wins over Morton and Hutchison Vale respectively.

In the regional Biffa SWFL, Forfar Farmington clinched the North league with a 6-2 win at Stonehaven.

The league title marks a recovery for the club who withdrew from the SWPL in 2021, and will now host Bonnyrigg Rose in the play-offs for a place in the national SWF League One.

The Midlothian side secured second place in SWFL East with a 3-0 victory over McDermid Ladies, and enter the play-offs because title winners Livingston Reserves don’t qualify for promotion as a development side of a club already in the national leagues.

The other play-off will see South league winners Queen of the South host West champions Harmony Row on the 4th June, with the losers of both games facing each other at a neutral venue on the following Sunday for the third and final place in the national leagues.
