Sheffield FC have won the FA Women's Premier League Northern Division after Coventry City confirmed they would not appeal a six-point deduction.
Helen Mitchell's side have been in scintillating form throughout the campaign. They have won 18 of their 21 league games, and have a 100 per cent win ratio from their home fixtures.
Coventry City were the only team that could still catch them, but were handed the six point penalty after fielding ineligible players in two recent matches.
A statement on Coventry City LFC's website confirmed they would not be contesting the decision. It read: "The board would like to thank all those that so generously offered legal support and expertise in defending our case; regrettably we have simply run out of time.
"We would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate all at Sheffield FC on retaining the Northern Division title."
Only one third-tier team can go up to the FA WSL, provided they meet FA criteria. Now confirmed as Northern Division Champions, Sheffield must still win one more contest - against Southern Division counterparts Portsmouth - if they are to secure promotion to the FA Women's Super League Two.
The promotion play-off will take place on Sunday 24th May at Stratford Town FC.
