Hamilton gets the game underway


Teams are out and ready. We are seconds away from kick-off.


As I write that, Glasgow Girls go 2-0 up against Inverness.


Currently, Glasgow Girls are beating Inverness City 1-0, and they are about twenty minutes into the second half. If that score stays the same, the team that loses today will fall further behind the leaders. But, anything can happen in football.


Hope everyone enjoyed the break. Anyway, SWPL is back and we are at King’s Park to see Hearts take on Hamilton Academical. Can Hearts and Hamilton keep up the pressure on Glasgow Girls?
