Glasgow City go into the Scottish Women’s Premier League’s short summer break with their 100 per cent record intact after an impressive 10-0 win over Falkirk at Recreation Park, Alloa.

Doubles from Leanne Ross, Suzanne Lappin and Sarah Crilly along with a debut goal for Emily Thomson and strikes from Lisa Robertson, Eilish McSorley and Jo Love ensured an easy victory for the reigning champions.

Head Coach Eddie Wolecki Black said: “I am absolutely delighted for everyone at the club. We had obviously suffered this season with a number of injuries to key players, but the squad has responded brilliantly by winning every game, retaining the League Cup and being top of the table. It’s a marvellous way to sign off at the break.”

In the day’s other matches, Hibernian stayed within five points of pace-setters City with a 4-1 win at Forfar Farmington. Kirsty Smith and Claire Emslie both scored doubles for the capital side.

Rangers are in third spot, and also won 10-0, with Megan Foley netting a hat-trick. Hamilton won 7-3 at Hutchison Vale, Aberdeen beat Celtic 2-1 with goals from Chery Anderson and Christie Grimshaw, while fourth-placed Spartans crushed Buchan 6-1 at home.

The SWPL resumes on 28 July, and the top six teams will play each other twice as will the bottom six, to ensure a competitive second half of the season.
