With just one before the mid-season league split, Hamilton sit in 10th place which means they will compete in the bottom six for the rest of the 2015 Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL).
Head Coach: Gary Doctor
Stadium: New Douglas Park
Hamilton Academical Women’s & Girls Football Clubs was founded in 1992, and today now have teams over six different age ranges. They have played in the top flight since the formation of the Scottish Women’s Premier League in 2002.
Hamilton failed to break into the top six before the split, finishing five points behind 6th placed Aberdeen – with a 3-2 defeat against Aberdeen costing them.
But in the second phase, they were dominant, picking up 23 points out of a possible 30. The only points they dropped came in two 1-1 draws against Hutchinson Vale, and a 3-1 defeat by Inverness City.
In the SWP League Cup, they received a bye through the Quarter-Finals where they were knocked out by Celtic. And on their way to the Scottish Cup Quarter-Finals, they beat Hibernian Development and Glasgow City but were knocked out by Glasgow City 11-0.
Hamilton’s league campaign started badly, losing their first five matches – including in games they would have been looking to win against Hutchinson Vale and Stirling University. But in recent matches, there has been a turnaround in form. Their first point came in a 1-1 draw at Hearts, whilst they have won two matches against Forfar and Inverness City. But this run came to the end as champions Glasgow City beat them 12-0.
They were knocked out in the First Round of the SWP League Cup, losing to eventual runners-up Hibernian 8-0.
In the Scottish Cup Second Round, they have been drawn against Stirling University, a game that will be played on the 21st June.
