Forfar Farmington took the runners-up spot in the Scottish Women's Premier League after results went their way on the final day of the league season.
Forfar went into their game at Aberdeen needing nothing less than a victory to stand any chance of climbing into second place whilst the game between Celtic and Hibernian needed to end in a draw.
After an even start to the game, Forfar began to press and took a 36th minute lead when a reverse pass from Alana Bruce put Lucy Graham through on goal and the highly rated 16-year-old finished coolly. Minutes later they were two ahead as Nicky Grant pounced on a loose ball in the area to slot home. Aberdeen goalkeeper Lauren Sangster pulled off some good saves to keep her side in the game but with eight minutes left, Forfar wrapped up the points when Graham scored her second from Caroline Heron's cross.
Forfar were then left with a tense wait for the result from Celtic's match with Hibernian, the kick off of which had been delayed, but the sides battled out a goalless draw which left them in third and fourth respectively, whilst Forfar secured the highest finish in their history.
Champions Glasgow City meanwhile rounded off another successful league campaign with a victory, 2-0 away to Spartans. Jane Ross scored both goals to ensure that City complete the season having won the league by a margin of sixteen points.
Next Sunday, City will attempt to complete the 'treble' in the Henson Scottish Cup Final when they take on league runners-up Forfar Farmington, who will be aiming to land their first major trophy. The sides meet at Airdrie's Excelsior Stadium with a 2pm kick off.
Hamilton Academicals confirmed themselves as finishing on top of the lower section with a 7-1 victory over FC Kilmarnock. Karen McInally scored twice for the Accies along with Cheryl McCulloch, Helen Templeton, Jacqui Seagrave, Sarah Crilly and Kirsten McGuire with Kristiana Hamilton replying.
Rangers meanwhile ended the campaign with a 1-0 win against Hutchison Vale, Lesley Condie grabbing the only goal of the game.
Falkirk edged out Inverness City by the odd goal in five, thanks to an own goal, Jade Gallon and Emma Lyons. Kirsty Deans and Lisa McKenzie replied for Inverness who finish in the bottom two.
