With four games in the season remaining, City required just one more win to secure the League title and they achieved that in style thrashing Motherwell 10-0 in front of a strong crowd on a damp wintry night.
Despite poor pitch conditions, City showed why they have been Champions for so long, with a professional performance, dominating the match from start to finish.
Top scorer Kirsty Howat got her team off the mark after only five minutes, before defender Jenna Clark made it 2-0 on 19 minutes. Howat then netted again, closely followed by strikes from team mates Megan Foley, Clare Shine, Leanne Ross, Leanne Crichton, Jordan McLintock and a double from Hayley Sinclair.
The win maintains City's 100% league record this season and ensures the pressure is off ahead of their League match against second placed Hibernian on Sunday, with City's all-important last sixteen second leg Champions League tie with Brondby looming next Thursday, City leading 2-0 from the first meeting last week. They have another meeting with Hibernian coming up on the horizon, in the SSE Scottish Women's Cup Final at Tynecastle Stadium on Sunday 24th November.
Commenting on the club's achievement, co-founder and Club Manager Laura Montgomery said, "I am so incredibly proud of this team. It is so hard to win any title, but to do it year after year reflects the Champions mentality at this club. A huge congratulations to Scott [Booth], the staff and all of our amazing players.
"For some it is their first title, for others like our remarkable captain Leanne Ross it is their thirteenth title - a feat, which I am sure will never be repeated by anyone, anywhere, it is astounding.
"The players work incredibly hard to push themselves to continually improve and push boundaries. I am very proud indeed, of every single one of them."
City will be presented with the League title at their last home game of the season on 17th November at Petershill Park against Motherwell.
