Glasgow City made a strong start to another defence of the Scottish Building Society Scottish Women's Premier League title with a 6-0 victory over Stirling University on the opening day.
Abbi Grant, Joanne Love and Hayley Lauder ensured that City were three goals ahead inside the opening 21 minutes and they went on to double their tally in the latter stages, thanks to further strikes from Nicola Docherty, Megan Foley and Joanne Paton.
Newly promoted Forfar Farmington were another side to open up the season with a win, notching a 1-0 success away to Hamilton Academical. In a clash between the two winners of SWPL 2 in the last two campaigns, Robyn Smith gave Forfar the points when she scored the only goal of the game, early in the second half.
Hibernian meanwhile got off the mark when they defeated local rivals Spartans 3-0. After the first half ended goalless, Katey Turner came off the bench and netted twice in quick succession to put her side two goals ahead, before Lia Tweedie wrapped up the win by scoring the third goal.
The other SWPL 1 game was no small matter as it saw the first Old Firm clash of the new campaign, and it was Celtic who emerged victorious with a 3-0 success against Rangers. Nicole Pullar marked her debut for the Hoops by giving them the lead just before the half hour and she netted a second, shortly after half time. Ruesha Littlejohn added a third to complete a fine start to the season for Celtic.
