SWPL Result of April – Winner Announced!

Last week, Tartan Kicks announced the three nominations for the ‘Result of the Month’ for April 2016.

Thank you to every single person who has voted, and we can now reveal the winner!

Third Place

Aberdeen 1-2 Rangers – SWPL 1 (8%)

aberdeen rangers SWPL

An away trip to Aberdeen is one of the trickiest in the calendar. And Rangers, they’ve had been having a hit-and-miss start to the season. At home, they had beaten Stirling University and Spartans, but on their travels – they had struggled. So, to pick up an away win against Aberdeen is a highly impressive result given that. And, it saw them move up to third.

Second Place

stirling celtic SWPL

Stirling University 2-1 Celtic – SWPL 1 (35%)

This was a game full of late action, but a brilliant game to watch. Celtic, outsiders for the title, travelled to Stirling University in a game they were expected to win. But Stirling is one of those tricky sides, and it looked like it was going to end in a goalless draw. And then, Celtic took the lead.

However, Stirling never allowed their heads to drop and scored two late goals to secure a famous victory as they beat Celtic for the first time.

The Winner

hamilton hearts SWPL

Hamilton Academical 1-3 Hearts – SWPL 2 (57%)

This was a top-of-the-table clash in the SWPL 2, and it did not let us down. It was a match full of excitement, chances and a huge amount of controversy at the end. Whilst Hearts’ third goal arguably should not have stood, they probably deserved the three points, as Hamilton never seemed able to deal with the threat of Ashley Carse. The win saw Hearts move up to first, becoming the first team to beat Hamilton in the league.
