One match was played in SWPL 2 on Sunday, St Johnstone further boosting their hopes of climbing out of the bottom two with a third straight win, beating Hutchison Vale 7-0.
Ashley Fish ensured that Saints led at the interval with the only goal of the first half and Fern Newbigging added a second, eight minutes after the restart. An own goal increased the lead before Ellie Cowie netted twice in quick succession, Newbigging completed her own double and Jade McDonald rounded off the scoring late on.
The SWPL 2 table has also been adjusted with the news that Hearts have been awarded a 3-0 win against Hutchison Vale. Scottish Women's Football issued the following statement:
"After convening a meeting, the committee determined that the below rule had been breached:
Competition Rule 10(h): "Any club without just cause failing to fulfil its fixture obligations in respect of any such match in the League on the appointed date or dates shall be liable to such sanctions as the Management Committee may determine, but not limited to including the deduction of points, fine or expulsion."
The committee agreed that Hutchison Vale did not have just cause for failing to fulfil their fixture, the club will be fined £1200 with £600 suspended until the 24th November 2019 and the result of the match be awarded 3-0 to Heart of Midlothian. Should Hutchison Vale breach any further competition rules within this time frame the club will be liable to pay the full sanction.
Hutchison Vale were fined £1000 with £500 suspended on 9th May 2019. As a new offence has occurred, Hutchison Vale are now liable to pay the previously suspended £500 fine.
The committee noted that a breach of Competition Rule 10(h) is not acceptable within the Scottish Women's Premier League.
The result and league table have been updated accordingly."
