Newcastle Utd got their season off to a great start in the Northern Division with a 6-1 victory over Nuneaton Town
Kate Brooks opened the scoring for the Magpies after seven minutes and then Ellie Dobson bagged a hat-trick to put her side in control, before Elizabeth Campbell put them further ahead on the stroke of half time. Sarah Rowles reduced the arrears for Nuneaton midway through the second half but Newcastle were to have the final say and substitute Rachel Vassallo completed their tally, fourteen minutes from time.
Sporting Club Albion have also started well, with a 3-2 success against Bradford City. Leigh Dugmore netted either side of half time for Graham Abercrombie's side and Hazzana Parnell put Albion three goals ahead, before Bradford battled back late on with replies from new signing Carey Huegett and Sarah Danby.
Two goals in quick succession during the first half ensured that Derby County opened up with a 2-1 victory over newly promoted Guiseley AFC Vixens. Katie Lowder and Melissa Johnson grabbed both goals for Derby in a three minute spell just after the half hour, before Aimi Beresford replied for Guiseley.
Blackburn Rovers were the other team to record a victory on the opening day, at the expense of the other team promoted into the division, Loughborough Foxes. A well contested game was settled when Lynda Shepherd fired home the only goal for Rovers.
The most exciting game of the day in the Northern Division was arguably at Huddersfield Town, where the home side shared a thrilling 3-3 draw with Stoke City. Courtney Jones netted two penalties to put Stoke two ahead at half time but Huddersfield came roaring back after the break. Emily Heckler hit a hat-trick which looked to have earned her side the points but Stoke were to have the final say, Laura Garside grabbing a late equaliser to give them a share of the spoils.
The points were also shared at Preston North End, their clash with Nottingham Forest finishing level at 2-2. Preston got off to a good start with Keeleigh Savage giving them the lead midway through the first half and Charlotte Farrell scored their second via a free kick five minutes later. After the break, Forest battled back and Andi Bell bagged a brace within six minutes to ensure that her side went home with a point.
