Manchester City have made an impressive start to the Northern Division campaign by beating Sheffield Wednesday 4-0 on the opening day.
Wednesday had enjoyed a good build-up to the season but City were never to look back after Charlotte Farrell and Levi Wensley netted either side of the half hour mark. Ellena Turner added a third early in the second half and Farrell wrapped up the win with her second goal late on.
Liverpool's ambitions of a swift return to the National Division have started well, thanks to a 4-1 victory over OOH Lincoln. Alyson Hastie gave the Reds a first half lead which was doubled before the interval by Allcia Hardacre. Cheryl Foster bagged a double early in the second half before Carla Ward scored a consolation for the Lady Imps from the penalty spot.
Leicester City were the only team on the day to record an away victory, 3-0 against Curzon Ashton. Leanne Griffin fired Leicester ahead on the half hour and Remi Allen added a second just before half time. Courtney Sweetman-Kirk completed the victory with the final goal, eight minutes from time.
Derby County's first ever game in the Premier League culminated in a 4-2 defeat away to Preston North End. Gemma Watson put the home side in front but Derby hit back to lead at the break through Jennifer Anslow and Laura Steele. Watson levelled the scores once more, ten minutes after the restart, and Lynette Craig quickly sent Preston ahead before they clinched the points with a fourth goal from Hannah Bailey.
It was not a good first day for another of the newcomers as Leeds City Vixens were beaten 1-0 by Aston Villa. Kelly Saggs grabbed the only goal of the game for Villa, five minutes before half time.
The other league debutants, Luton Town, made sure their long trip home from Newcastle Utd was an enjoyable one after battling out a 2-2 draw. However it could have been an even happier day for Luton who, after trailing to an Aimee Morrison goal at half time, fought back to lead through Rebecca Kane and Laveena Betts but the home side earned themselves a point via a last minute equaliser from Lindsay McCubbin.
