The Women’s Premier League for 2023 started with a bang last Sunday and round two of fixtures takes place this weekend.

In week one there were wins for last year’s champions Carlton, RH Corstorphine and Stewart’s Melville while the Northern Lights-Grange match got going, but was not able to finish.

This coming Sunday, Stewart’s Melville and RH Corstorphine will put their winning starts up against each other when they meet at Inverleith while Carlton will look to build on their triumph over West of Scotland when they take on Grange at Portgower Place.

Dumfries/Galloway were the side beaten by RH Corstorphine and they are at home to West.

And the Northern Lights are on the road to Myreside where Watsonians will look for a better performance than against Stewart’s Melville first up.

On Sunday there are also seven men’s Scottish Cup second round ties due to be played.

Among them are holders Forfarshire at home to Watsonians, last year’s beaten finalists Ayr at M8 Driving Ferguslie and Aberdeenshire versus Gen!us Grange.

Before all of that, men’s league action is now into week four and will continue on Saturday.

Arbroath United are top of the SPCU North East Championship table and they are on the road to bottom side Falkland II.

Huntly were the team that defeated Falkland II last time out and the former are second in the standings. They are on the road to Strathmore this time around.

Elsewhere, Forfarshire II are taking on Perth Doo’cot, Kinloch are making the trip to Aberdeenshire and Gordonians and Freuchie meet at Countesswells.

Ferguslie and Ayr are the two sides that have won three from three in Western Premiership One to date.

In week four, leaders Ferguslie are taking on third placed Stenhousemuir in what looks like being the game of the day.

Ayr are also at home, the second place side taking on sixth placed SM Cricket Stirling County.

Greenock are yet to register a league win this summer and they are visiting fourth placed West of Scotland.

And, elsewhere, Prestwick are playing Clydesdale and Your Move Dumfries will welcome Tunnock’s Uddingston to Nunholm.

After their impressive win on the road at Watsonians last time out, Eastern Premier League leaders Heriot’s are at home to Falkland.

Falkland will travel to Edinburgh in good spirits having got a first win of the league season under their belts last weekend.

Second placed Forfarshire are heading to the capital too and their match with Stewart’s Melville should be an intriguing one. Stewart’s Melville won at Stoneywood Dyce in week three and backed it up with a T20 victory over Heriot’s in the Masterton Trophy on Tuesday evening.

Grange, in third, will look to make it four wins from four in the league when they take on Watsonians at home while Meigle and RH Corstorphine will meet at Victory Park and Carlton are on their travels to Stoneywood Dyce.
