Team of the Week from the ScottishPower Women’s Premier League games played on Sunday 18th February.

Goalkeeper – Khym Ramsay (Glasgow Women)

Glasgow Women kept their noses in front of a recovering Gartcairn with a 0-0 draw against playoff-chasing Livingston on Sunday, with Khym Ramsay putting in a strong performance in net. The stopper saved three Livingston attempts while fighting hard alongside her defence to preserve her side’s clean sheet, deservedly earning a point from the clash.


Defender – Nicola Docherty (Rangers)

As mentioned, Rangers’ clash with rivals Celtic ended all square, with Nicola Docherty impressing on the Ibrox turf. The full back, who’s seen plenty of success in the left centre back role under Jo Potter, completed 79% of passes against Rangers’ title rivals, while also winning eight duels and making 11 recoveries.

Defender – Morgan Hay (Gartcairn)

A massive 3-1 win over Boroughmuir Thistle lifted Gartcairn off of the bottom of SWPL 2, with Morgan Hay the standout performer for Robert McCallum’s side. The 20-year-old defender put in a resolute defensive performance, winning 14 duels and making 12 recoveries on the way to a massively important three points for the Lanarkshire side.

Defender – Caitlin Hayes (Celtic)

This weekend’s Old Firm clash saw Rangers and Celtic share the spoils, with both back lines having plenty to keep them occupied throughout. Caitlin Hayes was a standout performer for the green side of Glasgow, as the defender completed 83% of passes, won 16 duels for a 73% success rate, and made 17 recoveries of possession.

Defender & Star Player – Georgie McTear (Kilmarnock)

A defender getting themselves on the scoresheet can be notable in itself, but a centre back popping up with a hattrick is certainly a rarity deserving of a Star Player award. Georgina McTear was the most dangerous woman in the Stirling University box on Sunday afternoon, firing in three headers on course to a rousing 10-0 win for Kilmarnock.


Midfielder – Hannah Jordan (Spartans)

Spartans saved themselves a point at the death against Hamilton on Sunday afternoon, with Hannah Jordan tucking away the scraps after a messy breakdown in the Accies box. The midfielder, who opened the scoring in Spartans’ 6-0 rout of Dundee United last week, also completed 100% of her attempted dribbles (five) and completed 76% of her passes as her side edged a point further ahead of Dundee United in 10th.

Midfielder – Eilidh Shore (Aberdeen)

The game of the weekend undoubtedly took place at Balmoral Stadium, with Aberdeen coming back from 3-1 down against Dundee United to win 4-3 in the 93rd minute, thanks to Eilidh Shore’s second goal of the afternoon. The 22-year-old made plenty of forays forward from the depths of midfield, recording four shots on target, and also put in a monstrous defensive display with 24 duels won and 20 recoveries made.

Midfielder – Emma Craig (Queen’s Park)

Another five-star performance for league leaders Queen’s Park on Sunday, running out 5-0 winners over St. Johnstone, with Emma Craig pulling the strings from the middle of the park. The 22-year-old was heavily involved in two of her side’s goals, grabbing an assist for one, and also won 19 duels, recovered the ball 17 times, and made 12 interceptions.


Forward – Olufolasade ‘Sade’ Adamolekun (Heart of Midlothian)

Eva Olid’s Hearts leapfrogged city rivals Hibernian into fourth over the weekend, with Sade Adamolekun scoring twice in a 5-0 win over Montrose at Oriam. The second-half substitute put Hearts out of sight in the 81st minute with a low drive into the bottom left corner, before stabbing home a rebound five minutes later.

Forward – Lauren Davidson (Glasgow City)

A two-goal haul in Glasgow City’s 3-0 win away against Motherwell sees Lauren Davidson make consecutive appearances in our Team of the Week. A back-post header, and a clinical finish under challenge from a Motherwell defender bookended City’s scoring efforts, with Davidson also completing five dribbles, recording a pass accuracy of 70%, and winning 12 duels on the right wing.

Forward – Morgan Steedman (Dundee United)

It wasn’t to be for Dundee United on Sunday afternoon, as they fell to a late defeat away against Aberdeen, but Morgan Steedman’s performance can give The Arabs encouragement as we head towards the split. The striker bagged a brace for her first goals in SWPL after arriving from St. Johnstone in January, firing a strike past Jen Currie with each foot, while also winning eight duels.
