Forfar Farmington started life in the second tier of the Scottish Women’s Premier League with a bang on Sunday as they convincingly defeated East Fife 4-1.

Farmington got off to a dream start just five minutes in when Smith’s cross was taken down by Julia Scott for Deans to rifle home.

Smith found the roof of the net in the 25th minute with a long range effort before her curled strike on the half hour mark was held by the keeper.

In the 39th minute Farmington should have probably extended their lead; Scott’s cross was met by the head of Smith but it was tipped wide.

Shillitto set up Scott on the stroke of half time with the winger firing into the keeper’s arms.

It didn’t take long for Farmington to get going again after the break and they doubled their lead just five minutes in.

Scott’s corner found McCarthy and after East Fife failed to clear their lines Parsley cheekily backheeled the ball through the legs of Anderson.

Kilcoyne came close to proving her worth when she latched on to a Nicola Davidson ball but her strike was blocked by Anderson.

In the 64th minute East Fife gave themselves a lifeline when Wheatley’s corner was bundled home by McAllister at the back post.

Kilcoyne sent Scott racing down the left wing to send in a perfect cross for Smith to slip under Anderson for her first goal since June last year.

It was 4-1 in the 88th minute after a fantastic piece of play from sub Kilcoyne.

The attacker raced on to a through ball before weaving her way through the East Fife defence and finding the bottom corner of the net.

Scott could have added another in injury time but the tireless winger could only watch as her shot flew inches past the post.

It was a good win for the side to open their season after last season’s relegation.
