Dundee United Women lifted the SWPL 2 trophy in front of a record Tannadice crowd.

Graeme Hart's side were presented with silverware with 726 fans cheering them on in a 3-2 win over St Johnstone.

It's the second time they have appeared at Tannadice, with 500 turning up to watch them in 2018.

And, as they prepare for life in the SWPL next term, the Women were given the perfect send-off after falling behind early on.

Nicole Carter put the Perth side ahead in 12 minutes with a sublime 20 yard chip.

But Chloe Clemison drew the hosts level on 36 minutes by firing high into the net after a penalty box scramble.

Saints equalised in 83 minutes as Ellie Cowie rounded home keeper Caroline Nachman before drilling into an empty net.

Robyn Smith then claimed the loudest cheer of the night as she netted direct from a corner to win it.

United have lost just once in 23 games, cruising towards the SWPL 2 championship in style.
