Livingston are Scottish Women’s Championship winners after rescuing a point against Renfrew to secure a place in SWPL 2 next season.

Three times Renfrew had gone ahead, but a late goal by Ashley Elizabeth sent the home fans into raptures. The club have been congratulated on social media by Scotland’s First Minister, Humza Yousaf.

The final day in SWF League One also provided high stakes drama. Dundee West took advantage of Gleniffer Thistle losing in Airdrie to secure their place in the national leagues, with a 3-0 victory over BSC Glasgow. Laura-Ann Johnston scored from the half-way line in a victory that had too often eluded the Dundee side this season.

FC Edinburgh completed an entire league campaign undefeated with a comprehensive 6-1 victory over St Mirren ahead of the trophy presentation at Meadowbank. Pop band The Eves were on hand to present the League One trophy in front of a big crowd.

Meanwhile, Northeast club Westdyke will be joining them in the Championship next season after defeating Falkirk 2-0 at the Falkirk Stadium.

Falkirk’s top scorer Suzanne Wyatt had the opportunity to put the Bairns ahead from the spot, but her penalty was saved, before Kayleigh Traynor scored her 35th goal of the season to supplement a strike by Chloe Ferries.

In the regional Biffa SWFL, Harmony Row secured the SWFL West title with a 5-1 victory over Bishopton.

Late winners for title-chasing Celtic and Rangers Women
