Dundee United WFC have been nominated for Scottish Women’s Premier League (SWPL) team of the year following their SWPL2 title triumph.
Graeme Hart’s side roared to promotion from the second tier, claiming the crown by 20 points ahead of Glasgow Women.
The Tangerines lost just one league match all season and will now embark on their first-ever campaign at the elite level of the women’s game in Scotland.
United are up against top-flight champions Rangers, Glasgow City, Celtic and Partick Thistle for the gong.
Boss Hart has also been recognised with a place on the SWPL coach of the year shortlist along with Malky Thomson (Rangers), Brian Graham (Partick Thistle) and Fran Alonso (Celtic).
