Goalkeeper – Molly Reeve (Livingston)

While conceding three goals wouldn’t usually merit inclusion, there’s no doubt that Livingston came away with a point partly thanks to the efforts of Reeve. She may not be happy with one of the goals conceded but the ‘keeper made a total of six saves to ensure Thistle were limited as much as possible while also boasting an impressive 75% passing accuracy rate.


Defender – Phillipa MacConnell (Glasgow Women)

Glasgow Women earned a vital three points away to Kilmarnock with a 1-0 win. Without a win since the 21st of January and against a Killie side in pursuit of promotion, it was a surprise result helped by an impressive defensive display. On the right side, MacConnell edges inclusion with a plus 50% passing success rate, 68% of duels won, six interceptions, and 15 recoveries.

Defender – Georgia Hunter (Heart of Midlothian)

Hearts put themselves in the strongest position possible to finish 4th again in the ScottishPower Women’s Premier League, defeating rivals Hibernian for the first time this season. The Jambos found themselves 1-0 up before a red card shortly after looked to put them on the back foot. In the end though, they limited Hibs to just one shot on target despite the away side enjoying more possession. Captain Hunter is included in the team for leading her side to victory with 81% of passes accurate, 73% duels won, six interceptions, and 11 recoveries.

Defender – Claire Delworth (Montrose)

The Mighty Mo moved themselves 12 points clear of relegation with a 2-1 away win to 10th placed Spartans. Delworth scored a fantastic opener for her side, curling a left footed effort away from Alicia Yates and into the net. As well as scoring her first Montrose goal, Delworth helped her side to victory with a plus 50% passing success rate, seven interceptions, and six recoveries.


Midfielder – Erin Burns (Gartcairn)

Midfielder – Ria McCafferty (Boroughmuir Thistle)

Boroughmuir Thistle returned to the top four in ScottishPower Women’s Premier League 2 with a 3-3 draw at home to Livingston.
