The only action which took place over the weekend was in the FA WSL Development League, with all of the scheduled FA Women's Premier League Reserve Section matches having been postponed.
Northern Division leaders Sunderland were not in action and saw their lead trimmed to two points by Birmingham City, who beat Sheffield FC 1-0. A win would have seen Sheffield take over at the top but instead it was the Blues who took the points, courtesy of a solitary strike from Antonia Smith. Manchester City are now in third, a further point adrift after Georgia Stanway, Toni Duggan and Katie Kitching gave them a 3-1 victory away to Liverpool, whose consolation came from Kess Elmore. Aston Villa ran out 5-0 winners over Durham Women, Lucy Shepherd was on target twice along with Natasha Baptiste, Amy West and Mollie Rouse. Meanwhile it was a good day for Notts County as they won for the first time, lifting themselves off the bottom of the table in the process. Ashleigh Plumptre scored both goals for the Lady Pies in their 2-1 success against Doncaster Rovers Belles, who replied through Ellie White.
The game of the day in the Southern Division went the way of Arsenal, who defeated Chelsea 5-2 to maintain their lead at the top. Evie Clarke netted two of the goals for the Gunners and there was one apiece from Rianna Dean, Charlotte Devlin and Lotte Wubben-Moy. Arsenal head the table on goal difference from Reading FC Women who defeated Yeovil Town 2-1 thanks to a brace from Zoe Cunningham. The other game to beat the weather was at Millwall Lionesses, where the home team won 2-1 with goals from Anna Williams and Jasmine Augustus.
