Bonnyrigg Rose had a very harsh introduction to the SWFL, Glasgow Girls Development going away 29-0 winners, to book a second round trip to East Fife Violets.

Maggie Wright got Airdrie’s first goal of the campaign, on the way to a 4-1 victory at the Gary O’Connor Academy, for which they were rewarded with a home tie against Kilmarnock U-23s.

Gemma Russell got two of Gleniffer’s six against East Kilbride, as Thistle sealed a visit to Stonehaven.

Louise Davidson claimed a double hat-trick as Broxburn Athletic stormed to an 11-1 win at Rutherglan. The Colts now go to Buchan Youth in the next round.

Kelty Hearts marked their first competitive fixture with a 13-0 thrashing of West Park United. They will be home again in a fortnight, when they entertain Caithness.
