Glasgow Girls U-23s were another side to have to fightback to achieve victory, doing so against Motherwell Development. A Kirsty Ross free kick was tucked away by Cara McKinnon, before a delivery deep into the box came off an opponents head to fly into the back of the net.

Morton amazingly grabbed a last-minute winner for the third week running, this time seeing off United Glasgow by two goals to one.

Clyde’s three-month old side had a seven-match unbeaten run ended by Pollok United.
