SWFL 2019 opening fixtures and cup rounds

The first set of fixtures in Division 1 North see Aberdeen, who have suffered back-to-back relegations, start their season at home to newly renamed Inverness Caledonian Thistle who finished third in 2018. Last year’s runners-up, East Fife, have a tricky away tie at Deveronvale, reports scotwomensfootball.com.

Two newly promoted sides from SWFL Division 2, Kelty Hearts and Stonehaven, meet on the opening day while Montrose, who won the Division 2 North title, are at home to Dunfermline Athletic.

In Divison 1 South, last year’s champions, Hibernian U-23s start their new campaign at newly promoted Spartans Development. Celtic Academy, who finished as runners-up, travel to Edinburgh to face Boroughmuir Thistle, while Queens Park, who narrowly missed out on promotion, start their new campaign at home to Blackburn United.

There is also another fixture involving two newly promoted sides as FC Kilmarnock U-23s host Glasgow City Development. The final new side to the league, Hamilton Academical U-23s, are at home to 2018 Scottish Cup Quarter-Finalists, Renfrew.
