Leicester seal runaway title success
 Women's Football News 23 Mar 2016
 
Midlands Division One
After having dominated the table all season, Leicester City Women secured the league title with a 10-0 victory over Rotherham Utd. Helen Busby scored four times, Chantelle Robinson and Kayleigh Hillier each added a brace and there was one apiece from Gabriella Reid and Rosie Axten to crown the achievement. With nineteen wins out of nineteen, just three teams stand between Leicester and a perfect record at the end of the season.
 
The two main contenders for the runners-up position met each other with Wolverhampton Wanderers and Radcliffe Olympic sharing a 1-1 draw. Wolves led through an early goal from Kim Holden but with ten minutes left, Beth Bailey equalised from the penalty spot to keep Radcliffe in second place.
 
Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies moved up to fourth, their highest position of the season to date, by winning 3-2 against Peterborough Northern Star who stay in the bottom two. Emily Painter scored a last minute winner to add to earlier strikes from Justine Buckmire and Natasha Merritt, with Northern Star replying through Sofia Aragosa and Rachael Mumford.
 
Steel City Wanderers added to Leafield Athletic's worries with a 4-1 victory. Cheryl Mawhood hit a hat-trick and Lucy Smith the other for the Steels while Amy Andrews scored a consolation for Leafield, who remain just outside of the bottom two places. 
 
Northern Division One
Middlesbrough extended their lead to eight points after scoring thirteen times without reply past Blackpool Wren Rovers. Bianca Owens once again had a great day in front of goal by scoring five times and Emily Scarr weighed in with a further four while Millie Bell (2), Simone Laverick and Ellie Dobson added the others.
 
Liverpool Marshalls Feds meanwhile suffered a setback as they were beaten 1-0 by Mossley Hill in their local derby, Carla Lee grabbing the only goal of the game on the hour.
 
Chorley kept their hopes alive by winning 2-0 at Stockport County, thanks to a goal in each half from Charlotte Higginson.
 
Chester-le-Street defeated Norton & Stockton Ancients for the second time in four days to register three more important points. This time the Cestrians won 4-2 with goals from Rae Taylor (2), Amy Kelly and Robyn Parker while Kate McGuire and Anna Mawston replied. 
 
South East Division One
Crystal Palace continue to stretch the pace and are three points clear following their 6-1 victory over Old Actonians. Gemma Bryan netted four times for Palace along with Abigail Igbavboa and Nicha Pyelt, with Jessica Byrne replying.
 
Second placed Milton Keynes Dons were held to a 2-2 draw by Enfield Town. Charley Clarke and Sophie Watson were on target for the Dons whilst Regan Coleman hit a brace for the Plate finalists.
 
Gillingham kept up their title challenge by scoring thirteen times against Lowestoft Town. Kallie Balfour bagged a hat-trick and there were doubles from Emma Tune, Lydia Wills, Paige Baker-Carroll and Shannon Redhouse while Lauren Davis and Madison North completed the tally.
 
Luton Town moved back up into fourth place after their meeting with Denham Utd ended in a goalless draw. 
 
South West Division One
The title race was further opened up on Sunday when the top of the table clash went the way of Chichester City who beat leaders Larkhall Athletic 1-0. A goal seven minutes from time by Chloe Parkes means that the Sussex side trail the Larks by five points but have two games in hand.
 
Swindon Town remain on course in third place after easing to a 3-0 victory away to Maidenhead Utd. Chyna Collings and Ellie Maynard ensured that Swindon led by two goals at the break, before Beth Westlake netted the third early in the second half.
 
Keynsham Town are six points off the pace after they defeated Shanklin 5-0. Pilar Garcia and Leanne Lapham each scored twice and Christina Vega Leandro was also on target.
 
A goal at the end of each half earned Southampton Saints a 2-0 win against St Nicholas. Kelly-Marie Fripp opened the scoring for the Saints, before Rebecca Bath wrapped up the points with the second goal.
