Hamilton Academical are promoted to SWPL 1 next season after clinching the runners-up spot with a 3-0 victory over Kilmarnock.
The Accies went into the game knowing that a win would guarantee them a place in the top flight and they got off to the best possible start as Josephine Giard and Georgina McTear put them two up inside the opening five minutes. Giard netted her second on the hour mark to complete a great day for the Accies.
As it happened, Hamilton would have been promoted regardless of the result due to their two nearest rivals, Dundee Utd and Partick Thistle, battling out a 2-2 draw. Both teams needed a win to stand any chance of overhauling the Accies but had to settle for a point apiece. After a goalless first half, United twice took the lead through Robyn Smith and Danni McGinley but on each occasion, Cara McBrearty levelled for Thistle including a last minute equaliser which means that Partick will finish in third.
Champions Aberdeen completed their successful season with a sixteenth win in eighteen matches, beating Boroughmuir Thistle 4-2. Boroughmuir did lead 2-1 at half time thanks to Mhari Smith and Fiona Gibson before Francesca Ogilvie scored her second goal to equalise for the Dons, who then went on to take the points with goals in the last twelve minutes from Eilidh Shore and Bayley Hutchison.
St Johnstone claimed a top half place by running out 5-2 winners over Stirling University. Rachel Todd, Ellie Cowie, Nicole Carter, Morgan Steedman and Rebecca McGowan all scored a goal apiece for St Johnstone, with Shana MacPhail and Ellie Simpson replying.
Glasgow Women meanwhile ensured they finished the season on a winning note as they edged out Queen's Park by the odd goal in five. All of the goals came in the first half, Rosie McQuillan netting twice and Nyla Murphy the other for Glasgow, whilst both of the Spiders' replies came from Jemma Hughes.
