Tranmere Rovers had a good week to finish off their season and they currently lie in fourth place following successive victories. After scoring eleven without reply past Cheadle Heath Nomads in midweek, the Birkenhead side then climbed above Stockport County and into the top four after beating them 3-2, registering their ninth win in ten league matches in the process. Beth Woolley, Lynn Carter and Becky Smith were all on target for Tranmere.
South East Combination
Queen's Park Rangers picked up the result they needed to clinch the Championship and win promotion back up to the Premier League at the first attempt. Two first half goals from leading scorer Stacey Sowden gave Rangers a 2-1 win away to Luton Town, who replied through Michelle Byrne, and ensured that Martino Chevannes' side pip C & K Basildon to the title by a single point.
The other action in the league on Sunday, to complete the fixture programme for the season, was a double header between Milton Keynes Dons and Norwich City. The Dons won the first meeting 4-1 thanks to Leah Cudone, Elizabeth Stanton, Charly Wright and Chloe Smith and this left them needing to win the return game in order to edge past the Canaries and into third place. It was Norwich who prevailed though after a 2-2 draw, Paige Shorten netting both their goals with Cudone and Emily Mann on target for the Dons.
South West Combination
Plymouth Argyle have won the title for the third time following their 1-1 draw with Exeter City on Tuesday night. Plymouth took the lead on 20 minutes, Ellie Dorey latching on to a misplaced pass by a City defender across the box and firing a powerfully struck low shot into the net. City got themselves back in the game just before half time, when full back Susan Badger was on hand to score from close in after the Argyle defence failed to clear the ball. Both teams had chances to clinch the three points, City's Tash Knapman hit the bar with a powerful shot from the edge of the area, and shortly after Ezme Wells' shot was touched onto the post by the home keeper.
The point means that Exeter are still in the running for the runners-up position along with Forest Green Rovers and Chichester City, who currently occupy second but have completed their fixtures.
