C:WindowsTempphpC278.tmpAyr United Development and Dunipace have won the Scottish Women’s Football League South and West leagues respectively, joining SWFL East winners Armadale Thistle who were also presented with their trophy today.

Having won the league last week, Armadale Thistle were in the capital at Peffermill to play Edinburgh University Thistle and won 3-1 through Katie Hay, Meg Reilly and Kya McGurk to complete an impressive invincible season.

The team, formed from the old Livingston Reserves, has flourished since moving to Volunteer Park and will now test themselves in SWF’s League One, the fourth tier of women’s football in Scotland.

C:WindowsTempphpE1CC.tmpThey will be joined by Denny side Dunipace, who started the day two points ahead of Drumchapel United in second in SWFL West, and needed an away victory against former League One side Gleniffer Thistle. Drumchapel played their part, beating Alloa 4-1 at home, but Dunipace secured the league title with a 6-0 victory.

In SWFL South, Ayr United Development needed only a point from their match against Ardrossan Winton Rovers but claimed the title in style, running out 7-0.

As development sides cannot be promoted, second-placed Kilwinning will be offered the opportunity to play national league football after they beat Bishopton 3-0.

The promoted teams join SWFL North winners Inverurie Locos, who won the title last month.

One game remained in SWF League One, fourth-placed Bonnyrigg Rose ending their season on a high by beating league runners-up Forfar Farmington 3-2 at Poltonhall.
