After a wait of seven months, the SBS Scottish Women's Premier League got underway on Sunday and Champions Glasgow City started off their defence of the title with a 2-0 victory against Celtic.
The two sides had met in the only match they played in the aborted season back in March, with Celtic winning 2-1 on that occasion, but this time it was City who took the points with two goals in a five minute spell just after the hour. Rachel McLauchlan gave them the lead with a cross-cum-shot and Kirsty Howat headed in the second to seal a notable victory.
Rangers recorded the biggest win on the opening day; 5-1 against Hearts who were officially making their return to the top flight. Zoe Ness put Rangers two ahead with a double in the first half, with Murron Cunningham reducing the arrears ahead of the break. Ness completed her hat-trick during the second half, before her side went on to add further goals through Kirsten Reilly and Demi Vance.
Forfar Farmington made it a winning start when they defeated Motherwell 4-2. Forfar took the lead in the opening minute thanks to Donna Paterson and London Pollard added a second, with Lauren Gallon pulling one back before half time. Remarkably, in the second half, all three players scored again to complete their braces, Paterson and Pollard both scoring before Gallon grabbed a consolation for the visitors.
Hibernian took the points with a 2-1 victory from their Edinburgh derby match with Spartans. Eilidh Adams opened the scoring for Hibs with four minutes on the clock, with Rebecca Galbraith equalising before the interval. Substitute Carla Boyce settled matters with the winning goal, nine minutes into the second half.
