The all-important top of the table clash in the Premier Division ended with honours even as Bedford Ladies and Haringey Borough battled out a goalless draw. Bedford have now completed their fixtures and have a lead of three points although Haringey still have two matches left. However, Haringey do not now have matters entirely in their own hands as Acle Utd will win the league if they win all of their five games left. They kept themselves on course for this by winning 4-1 away to Billericay Town, Megan Todd netting twice along with Lauren Bullard and Jody Wells. Writtle and Royston Town meanwhile drew for the second successive week, this time finishing level at 1-1 with goals from Leanne Stubbings and Andrea Wright respectively.

Kimberley Rex scored twice and Tarnya McKew the other as Ipswich Wanderers defeated Little Thurrock Dynamos 3-0 to keep themselves out of the bottom two at the expense of Hertford Town, despite them winning 3-2 at Offley & Stopsley thanks to a Meike Gierig hat-trick.

London Corinthians completed their fixtures by going top of the table for the first time this season after they defeated Watford Development 8-0. Emily Hart led the scoring with a hat-trick, Laura Susarta adding a double with Elizabeth Adams, Alicia Gibbs and an own goal completing their tally.

North East League

Burnley Girls & Ladies were 6-3 victors away to CMB Ladies and this lifts them into third place, ahead of Blackpool who were beaten 5-2 by MSB Woolton.
In Division One North, Sir Tom Finney finished their campaign by winning 5-0 away to Kendal Town and they must wait and see if their points tally will be overhauled. Penrith AFC defeated Preston North End 5-1 and need to win their final match of the season in order to clinch the title. Carlisle Utd meanwhile climbed above Leigh RMI in the table after beating them 4-2.

Oxford City have to play a waiting game to see if their points tally will be enough to land them the title after they completed their league campaign with a 1-1 draw against Winchester City Flyers, who scored through Louisa Castle. Of the chasing teams, Southampton Women and Chesham Utd require three wins in order to go past them whilst Winchester can still mathematically overhaul their total.
Ascot Utd are continuing to stretch their lead at the top of Division One after Lauren Broadhurst and Lucy Holzman-Clarke scored in their 2-1 win over Barton Rovers.
