Northern Division One
Mossley Hill staged an amazing escape from relegation and also affected the runners-up position with a stunning 3-0 victory away to Hull City. The Merseyside club, who lost all of their opening nine league matches, needed nothing less than a win in order to stand any chance of climbing out of the bottom two whilst Hull required a victory to eanr themselves a second place finish, but goals from Megan Brodie, Amy Hughes and Stephanie Lockhart ensured that Mossley will definitely be playing Premier League football next season.
Hull's defeat means they will finish in third place, while Liverpool Marshalls Feds claimed the runners-up spot by winning 4-3 away to Leeds Ladies. Chantelle Thompson (2), Laura Bartup and Carla Lee netted the goals for the Feds, with Leeds replying through Veatriki Sarri, Arianne Parnham and Jodie Hunter.
Champions Guiseley Vixens completed their season with a 3-0 victory over Crewe Alexandra, who finish outside of the bottom two. Sarah Danby, Chantelle O'Hara and Olivia Thackray scored the goals which gave Guiseley their 19th win in 22 league matches and they finish top of the table by a huge fifteen point margin.
Chester-le-Street Town have had a good season and they end it in fourth place following their 6-2 success against Morecambe. Nichole Goundry-Havery led the scoring with a hat-trick, Amber McLoughlin added a brace and Brogan Prudhoe was also on the scoresheet.
Blackpool Wren Rovers face an anxious wait though as they were beaten 4-1 by Brighouse Town, whose first season in the league culminated in a sixth place finish. Chloe Dean, Emily Starkie, Nicola Swift and Charlotte Proud all scored for Brighouse while Wren Rovers' consolation came from Nikki Berko.
Midlands Division One
Wolverhampton Wanderers clinched the title and are back in the top flight after a 1-0 win away to Leicester City Ladies. Wolves went top of the table for the first time this season in midweek after beating Loughborough Students and a nervy performance was settled in the opening five minutes of the second half, when Emma Cross scored the only goal of the game to give Wolves the result they needed.
Loughborough Foxes had led the table for the entire season up until that point; they did all they could with a fine 2-1 victory at third placed Sporting Khalsa but they have fallen just two points short. Emma Pilling and Chloe Young were on target for the Foxes with Megan Wilton replying for Khalsa, who have had a very good season themselves.
Radcliffe Olympic follow on after rounding off their campaign with a 1-0 victory over Rotherham Utd, thanks to a solitary goal from Honor Cantrell.
Birmingham & West Midlands Ladies meanwhile defeated Long Eaton Utd 4-2. Leah Seivwright netted two of the goals along with Katy Kirby and Maimee Morris, while Long Eaton's replies came from Cara Newton and Amy Pashley.
A win would probably have seen TNS Ladies finish in third place but such was the tightness of the chasing pack, their 2-2 draw with Solihull Ladies means they end up in sixth. After Lois Jeffries had given Solihull a first half lead, Emily Ridge netted a brace which looked to have given TNS the points until Carly Davies equalised with six minutes remaining.
Steel City Wanderers meanwhile completed their campaign on a winning note, a first half double from Millie Kenyon earning them a 2-1 victory away to Loughborough Students, whose consolation came from Morgan Murphy.
South East Division One
Gillingham's hopes of ending their title winning season with an unbeaten record are over after they were beaten 3-2 by AFC Wimbledon in their final match. In fact, the Gills had raced into a two-goal first half lead thanks to Fliss Gibbons and Kallie Balfour but after Katie Stanley had pulled one back before half time, Yasmin Poole and Becky Sargent scored second half goals to earn Wimbledon the points and a highly creditable third place in their first season back in the league.
Milton Keynes Dons meanwhile claimed second place after repeating a midweek victory over Cambridge Utd by beating the U's 2-0. Hannah Barrett and Heather McDonnell netted the goals which saw MK reach their highest ever finishing position.
Although they still have a match to play, Luton Town will definitely be finishing in fifth place after they battled out a goalless draw with Stevenage Ladies, who now look very likely to end up outside of the bottom two.
Actonians Ladies rounded off a good season for themselves by scoring eleven times without reply past Norwich City. Melissa Jung led the scoring with a six-goal haul, Alessandra Barrace and Sinthujah Sooriyakumra weighed in with a brace apiece and Katrina Duncan completed the tally.
Nuala McKevitt was another hat-trick scorer for Enfield Town as they ran out 5-1 winners over Lowestoft Town. Regan Coleman and Macy Diaz added the other goals, with Hannah Waters replying.

South West Division One

Brislington can look back on a satisfactory first season in the league as can Basingstoke Town and their meeting ended in a 2-2 draw. Helen Ogle gave Basingstoke a first half lead which was cancelled out before the break by a Polly Wardle header and Zoe Gunter struck after the break for the home side, with Katie Randell replying.
Maidenhead Utd completed a good week for themselves, following up a midweek victory over St Nicholas by beating Exeter City 1-0, Rachel Panting scoring the only goal of the game.
