Chelsea are the FA WSL 1 Spring Series winners after picking up the win they needed in their final game, beating Birmingham City 2-0.
Due to a vastly superior goal difference, a victory was always going to be enough for Emma Hayes' side and midway through the first half, they were given a great chance to open the scoring when Fran Kirby was baulked in the area by Ann-Katrin Berger and a penalty was awarded. Karen Carney duly stepped up to beat Berger from the spot and give her side the lead against her former club.
Kirby herself wrapped up the points when she scored the second goal just before the hour mark and, as well as picking up a winners medal, the England striker finishes on top of the scoring charts with six goals to her name.
Manchester City did all they could but their 3-1 win away to Liverpool means they will finish in second place. Jill Scott headed them in front from a corner on the half hour and Melissa Lawley curled home the second on the stroke of half time. Megan Campbell made it three from a free kick during the second half, before Caroline Weir grabbed a consolation for Liverpool late on.
Arsenal are the only team to go through the eight matches unbeaten as they rounded off their campaign with a 5-0 victory away to Bristol City. A youthful home side started the game well but Arsenal - who themselves had four teenagers in their starting line up - took the lead when Louise Quinn headed in an Anna Patten cross. After the break, Jordan Nobbs finished off a good move with a powerful strike for the second goal and Chloe Kelly made it three from close range following a good run and cross from Heather O'Reilly. Danielle van de Donk fired home the fourth before turning provider for Beth Mead to drill in the final goal.
Sunderland and Reading FC Women battled out a 1-1 draw on a day when the Wearsiders said farewell to long serving captain Steph Bannon, who was playing her final game for the club. Reading had the better of the first half and were rewarded when Melissa Fletcher broke through to score but Sunderland battled back after the break and substitute Beverley Leon scored her second goal in three games to earn her side a share of the spoils.
