Northern Division One
Guiseley AFC Vixens have won the Northern Division One title after a dramatic final few days in the title race. On Thursday night, Guiseley completed their fixtures with Aimi Beresford and Michelle Walsh giving them a 2-1 victory away to Tranmere Rovers, meaning that Liverpool Marshalls Feds needed to beat Leeds Ladies in their last match in order to overhaul them. However, a late goal from Shelbey Morris earned Leeds a 1-0 win to break the Feds' hearts and confirmed their fellow Yorkshire side as Champions whilst securing themselves a top three finish.
