Champions Sunderland brought the curtain down on another successful season and closed their Premier League account, prior to their elevation to the FA Women's Super League, with a fine and well deserved 3-1 victory over close rivals Leeds Utd at Hetton on Sunday.
The result means that Sunderland retain the title by a margin of seven points but Leeds miss out on the runners-up position, with Watford taking second place on goal difference.
As always it was a tough encounter with neither side giving much ground throughout, but the Lady Black Cats showed the credentials of champions as they ran out winners. An early Sophie Williams strike gave the home side the advantage, while a second half penalty from top scorer Beth Mead (her 30th goal of the season) was followed soon after by a great headed goal from Sarah McFadden to ensure victory.
Sunderland were presented with the trophy after the game, completing a hat-trick of titles for Mick Mulhern's side.
