The WSL 1 title race comes to a close on Sunday with three teams still having a chance of finishing as Champions, but another honour is up for grabs between several players.
The position as leading goalscorer in the division has been a close race throughout the season and, without an outstanding markswoman, one player leads the way although just one goal covers the top seven scorers.
Birmingham City captain Karen Carney's two goals against Manchester City last Sunday has put her on top of the charts with six to her name, ahead of six other players who have five goals apiece. Before last week's matches, Chelsea's Japanese star Yuki Ogimi had jointly led along with Bristol Academy forward Nikki Watts, before they joined by Eniola Aluko (Chelsea), Jess Clarke (Notts County), Nikita Parris (Everton) and Casey Stoney (Arsenal) - whose presence on the list is a fine achievement as she is a defender.
Rachel Williams was the top scorer in the first season of the FA WSL in 2011 with 14 goals, which is still a league record for the top flight. Two years ago, Kim Little took the honour, and Natasha Dowie topped the charts last season.
The race for leading goalscorer in WSL 2 has been much more clear cut with Reading FC Women starlet Fran Kirby having led the way all season, a four-goal haul against London Bees taking her tally for the season to an impressive 22. She leads from Sunderland hot shot Beth Mead, who has 13 to her name, her Reading team mate Lauren Bruton with 10 and Yeovil Town's Sarah Wiltshire who has scored nine times.
