Lizzie Arnot and Charlotte Gammie have won the 2022/23 Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL) Goal of the Season awards, selected by an SWPL panel of judges involved in the women’s game.

Arnot’s wonder strike for Rangers in the Sky Sports Cup Final beat 13 other goals to the SWPL award. It was the opening goal at Tynecastle Park and the first SWPL goal broadcast on Sky Sports.

With just over a quarter of an hour played in the final, the forward collected the ball just beyond the halfway line. With defender Leah Eddie in front of her, Arnot drove forward before rifling the ball into the top corner with her left foot from the outside the box. Her effort gave the Hibernian goalkeeper no chance and was described as ‘incredible’ by Scotland legend Julie Fleeting on co-commentary.

The panel selected Arnot’s strike with Spartans’ Rebecca Galbraith’s goal against Aberdeen coming second and Shelley Campbell’s long-range free-kick for Glasgow Women in third.

Charlotte Gammie wins the SWPL 2 Goal of the Season award for her stunning half volley against Boroughmuir Thistle, beating seven other goals.

The Montrose midfielder received the ball on the edge of the box and her left footed touch bounced up nicely. Gammie proceeded to let it take one touch off the surface before smashing it accurately passed Lisa Rodgers in the Thistle goal. This was the opener in a game which ended 3-3 with Gammie scoring twice at Links Park.

Finishing second was Lauren Kerr’s goal for Gartcairn away to Queen’s Park and Carrie McGorm’s left-footed finish for Stirling University at home to Gartcairn.
