MORTON Ladies have scored a stunning brace by lifting the championship title and League Cup in just their third year of existence.

The Cappielow women's side wrapped up their domestic campaign in style at Notre Dame High in Greenock on Sunday with a 6-0 win over Irvine outfit Clark Drive to maintain their unbeaten run as they were crowned SWFL Division Two winners.

The championship trophy was added to the League Cup won in June.

Manager Gary Forbes said: "When I came in back in August last year, we were just about to be relegated to this division so this shows just how far we've come since then.

"The players have worked really hard.

"In the three seasons of the Morton women's team that's two league titles, two promotions and a league cup.

"That's incredible."

The championship trophy was presented to skipper Taylor Davis and vice-captain Rachael McConnachie by Tina Stewart, who is the Scottish FA's girls and women's football development officer for the west of Scotland.

Gaffer Gary, who celebrated the remarkable achievement with his two-year-old daughter Millie, said: "We'd actually clinched the title the week before but they finished the league in style with a 6-0 win. "Their performance was great, they really turned it on.

"Over the course of the season, it's 105 goals scored and only four conceded in the league. Something we were trying to improve on from last season was the number of goals against and to have only conceded four is amazing.

"In fact, nobody has scored against us since the second half of the season started in August."

Restructuring of the women's game means the ladies side, run by the Morton Community Trust, are waiting to find out which league they will be competing in next term.

Gary is confident they will go up as expected and is savouring the sparkling season the team has just had in the meantime.

He said: "The girls and I said right at the start that we wanted to win the league and gain promotion.

"We also hoped for a cup run but things just snowballed from round to round and we ended up winning the League Cup dramatically with a winning goal in the last minute of extra time.

"I'm delighted we did the double."

Their achievements are even more remarkable given that the Morton Ladies team features just two players over the age of 21, with four aged just 16.

Gary said: "It's great for the future with the squad we've got."
