Ayr United Women have won promotion to the second tier of Scottish football after a playoff victory over Glasgow Women. 

The Honest Ladies triumphed 4-3 after extra time at the Falkirk Stadium on Friday night, with a big crowd making the journey to give their backing to the South Ayrshire side. 

Clare Docherty was named player of the match on the night after scoring a hat-trick before being sent off after handling the ball on the line.

The team will now play in SWPL2 next year alongside neighbours Kilmarnock, who lost narrowly to Dundee United in their own playoff as they attempted to gain promotion to the top tier.
