Former Hearts Women’s boss Scott assumed the reins in April following the sudden departure of former boss Kevin Milne.

Scott led the club to their third consecutive SWPL Cup just weeks into his new role with a 9-0 thrashing of Celtic in the final.

Despite the disappointment at missing out on the SWPL 1 title to now 12-times champions Glasgow City last month, the players bounced back to win the SSE Scottish Cup with another emphatic victory – this time an 8-0 triumph over SWPL 2 champions Motherwell just over a fortnight ago. It was also the club’s third win in the showpiece fixture in as many years.
