Spartans striker Rebecca Galbraith has been named SWPL player of the month for May.
It is the first time Galbraith has won the accolade, having last been nominated back in April 2021.
The striker had a prolific month as Spartans won all five of their matches in May, scoring seven goals and providing one assist.
She scored hat-tricks against Motherwell and Aberdeen last month and ended the season as the league's joint-fourth top goalscorer alongside Celtic's Amy Gallacher.
Glasgow City snatched the SWPL title from Celtic with a stoppage-time goal against Rangers on a dramatic final day of the season.
In the most exciting climax to a campaign in SWPL history, all three teams were in contention for the title and the two Champions League spots.
Celtic were 2-0 up again Hearts and on course for their first title before Lauren Davidson fired in a stoppage-time winner for City at Ibrox to clinch their 16th league honour.
The other nominees for May's award were Lauren Davidson (Glasgow City), Kirsty Howat (Rangers), and Lucy Sinclair (Hamilton Academical).
Ami Robertson becomes the first ever Gartcairn player to win the SWPL award after scoring four goals across their four games in May.
The striker will be hoping to fire her side to glory on Sunday as they face Hamilton Academical in the SWPL play-off final at Broadwood Stadium.
In SWPL 2 the other nominees were Abby Robinson (Kilmarnock) and Morgan Steedman (St Johnstone).
