Derby County recorded the biggest victory on the first day of the new season in the Northern Division when they triumphed 6-3 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Melissa Johnson got the Rams off to a great start by giving them an early lead which was quickly doubled by Sam Griffiths. Nikki Ledgister made it three against her former club and Amy Perry put Derby further ahead just before half time. After the break, Dani Selmes pulled one back from the penalty spot but Lauren Steadman added a fifth for Derby. Wolves rallied with Abi Hinton scoring twice in quick succession but Derby were not finished and Natalie Reay became their sixth different goalscorer in injury time.
Sporting Club Albion started well with a 3-1 win at Newcastle Utd. Kayleigh Griffiths gave Albion a first half lead which was cancelled out by Stacy Crooks, but second half goals from Hazzana Parnell and Griffiths saw Albion home in a well contested game.
Stoke City had a good season last time around and they have made a promising beginning on this occasion by beating Nottingham Forest 3-1. Laura Garside, Hannah Bailey and Meg Bowyer were all on target for Stoke with Forest's response coming from Andi Bell.
The battle between last season's title winners went the way of Sheffield FC, who defeated Coventry City 2-0. Suzanne Davies and Jodie Michalska scored the goals to give Sheffield a winning start (see match report).
Newly promoted Huddersfield Town made a dramatic entrance to the top flight as they came from two goals behind to record a fine 3-2 win away to Blackburn Rovers. 16-year-old Katie Lockwood was the hero for Huddersfield as she netted the winning goal on her debut, to add to two earlier strikes from Emily Heckler after Rovers had gone ahead through Danielle Sheen and Sophie Jones.
Preston North End and Bradford City both finished in the top three last season and things were tight again this time as they battled out a 1-1 draw. Zoe Roberts gave City a first half lead which was cancelled out in the 73rd minute by Alison Taberner.
