SWF Championship

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

In the 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 tonight (Tuesday) 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. Renfrew have announced entry to the match will be free, with a 7:45 kick-off at New Western Park.

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 that 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.
