The most recent meeting between the two sides came on Sunday, 11th September 2016 in the SWPL 2. The match ended 6–0 to Glasgow Women, with goals from Lauren Evans (1), Lauren Coleman (1) and current Spiders Samantha McManus (2) and Chloe Docherty (2). 

Last season (2019, as the 2020 season was declared null and void by SWF due to Covid-19), Glasgow Women finished in sixth place, with 8 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses; they scored 50 goals (the joint-third best attacking record in the SWPL 2) and conceded 28 (the joint-fourth best defensive record in the SWPL 2). Lucy McEwan, who narrowly missed out on the SWPL 2 Golden Boot, was their top goalscorer in 2019.

This season, they have strengthened their squad with the additions of forwards Megan Wands (from Celtic), Kaitlyn Canavan (also from Celtic) and Taylor Hamill (from Heart of Midlothian), midfielders Shivohn Honeyman (from Rangers) and Eve Donald (on loan from Hibernian), and former Queen’s Park goalkeeper Chloe Gibney

Last Sunday, Craig Joyce’s side won their first match of the 2020–21 SWPL 2 season, 4–0, against Stirling University. The four goals were scored by Abbi McDonald, Lucy Ronald, Eve Donald, and Suzanne McTaggart
