Forfar Farmington 2-4 Glasgow City

forfar 2-4 city

SWPL 1 leaders Glasgow City continued their 100% start to the season, but they were pushed closer than expected by Forfar Farmington who became the first side to score against City this season.

City took the lead in the seventh minute when Ruesha Littlejohn squared the ball across the box to Fiona Brown who made no mistake. But in the 16th minute, Forfar equalised through Tori Sousa.

The away side had the ball in the back of the net at the half-hour mark, only for it to be ruled out due to Leanne Ross being offside. The champions kept up the pressure with Cheryl McCulloch and Littlejohn coming close, but it looked like the scores would be level at half-time.

But in the 41st minute, City once again took the lead. Great play from Sam Kerr and Brown gave Nicky Docherty the space to blast the ball into the net.

Just like in the first half, it took just seven minutes of the second half for City to score their next goal, and it came from the same player as Brown headed in the corner.

However, Forfar pulled a goal back minutes later when Kayleigh Noble’s cross picked out Nicola Davidson, and she lobbed the City keeper Erin Clachers.

Both sides had good chances to score soon after, but City would make sure of the three points in the 66th minute when Brown’s cross picked out Sarah Crilly and she made no mistake.

It caps an impressive week for Glasgow City as they picked up three wins, scoring 13 goals, as they cemented their place at the top of the SWPL 1. Whilst Forfar remained pointless, they can look back with pride after pushing City so close.
