Midlands Division One
Rotherham Utd took back the leadership on goal difference after emerging as 3-2 winners from their local derby with Steel City Wanderers. Megan Wylde gave Rotherham a first half lead which was cancelled out midway through the second half by Maria Burns. Katherine Clarke and Nat Shaw netted twice in quick succession for Rotherham and although Zoe Beresford gave the Steels late hope, Rotherham held on for the result they required to replace Loughborough Foxes at the top.
Leafield Athletic scored five times without reply away to Curzon Ashton to take themselves up to fourth, just two points off the pace. Leigh Dugmore and Donna Hawkins each scored twice for Leafield along with Eloise Gerhold.
Solihull Ladies are back in the top half of the table following their 2-1 victory at Loughborough Students, thanks to strikes from Joanna Pointon and Hayley Wilford.
South East Division One
Denham Utd produced the result of the day in the Premier League when beating second placed Milton Keynes Dons 3-1. The Dons had gone into the game with an unbeaten record and a draw would have taken them top but Jo Tott, Alissia Down and Elisha Allen scored the goals to earn Denham an excellent victory.
Enfield Town are in the top four following a hard earned 3-2 victory away to Luton Town. Kerrie Marlborough, Lizzie Kent and Lorraine Mason were all on target for Enfield, with Luton replying through Zara Carroll and Rebecca Wilson-Kane.
It was a good day though for Bedford Ladies as they won for the first time, lifting themselves off the bottom of the table in the process. Natasha Fensome bagged a hat-trick as Bedford won 6-4 at Ipswich Town, Rebecca Vass adding a brace with Maisie Wyatt as their other markswoman. Danielle Bitten, Amanda Crump, Lucy Du Plooy and Ellie Rossiter all responded for the home side.
South West Division One
Swindon Town needed a four-goal victory away to St Nicholas in order to reclaim top spot in the table and they duly did so with a 4-0 win. Beth Thompson gave them an early lead with Sarah Uzzell adding a second just before half time and after the break, Meg Vella made it three before Thompson netted her second goal.
A win would actually have taken Southampton Saints to the summit but instead they are now in third following a 2-1 defeat at Exeter City. All three goals came in a remarkable start to the game, Tash Knapman heading Exeter into a second minute lead which was cancelled out by an equaliser by Catherine Browning from a corner. Another corner at the other end led to the winning goal with just eight minutes on the clock, headed home by Vicky Barter.
