The weather had the biggest say on the opening day of the season in the Scottish Women's Premier League with only three of the scheduled eight group matches in the new look SWPL Cup going ahead.
Celtic made their first appearance since all of their winter changes but it was a day of frustration for them in their first match under the charge of new Head Coach Fran Alonso, as they were held to a goalless draw by the newly named Glasgow Women. Celtic struggled to break down a well organised Glasgow defence on the day and the SWPL 2 side dug in for a well earned point.
Therefore it is Spartans who are the early leaders of the group after they won 1-0 against St Johnstone. Extremely difficult conditions made it tough for both teams throughout the match but with ten minutes remaining, Becky Galbraith popped up to score the only goal of the game and give her side a winning start.
The only other match to beat the weather was in Group D, where Forfar Farmington defeated Kilmarnock 2-0. Hannah Stewart gave Forfar a 34th minute lead when she scored from a free kick by Cassie Cowper and the striker completed her double early in the second half following good work by Billie Simpson.
