Northern Division One
With the two teams above them not having a league game on Sunday, Liverpool Marshalls Feds took full advantage by running out 8-0 winners over Barnsley and this has lifted them to the top of the table. Rosie Kinvig led the scoring with a four-goal haul as the Feds netted six times during the second half, and Laura Bartrup contributed a further two. Carla Lee and Nicole Johnston also got on the scoresheet as their team achieved the margin of victory they required to climb above Hull City on goal difference.
If results had gone their way, Morecambe might well have gone top themselves, or least second on goal difference, but instead they suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of improving Newcastle Utd. Megan McKenzie and Rebecca Olley netted the goals for Newcastle, who have moved into mid-table, with Morecambe's reply coming from Yasmine Swarbrick.
Leeds Utd meanwhile picked up an important 1-0 success away to Chorley to boost their hopes of climbing out of the bottom two. Bridie Hannon scored the only goal of the game to check Chorley's recent good run and move themselves to within one point of the side above them.

Radcliffe Olympic replaced Burton Albion in fourth place when beating them 2-1. First half goals from Rania Ramadan and Alice Kempski gave Radcliffe the points and avenged their defeat by Burton earlier in the season, Jordan Atkin pulled one back just after the hour mark but the visitors held on.
Sporting Khalsa are up into mid-table after scoring six times without reply past Leicester City Ladies. Natalie Morris led the scoring with a hat-trick and there was one apiece from Kyrie Ball, Jodie Lewis and Lauren Walker as Khalsa stretched their unbeaten league run to four matches, all of which have been away from home.
South East Division One
AFC Wimbledon kept up the pressure at the top of the table with a 2-1 win against Enfield Town, which means they continue to lead by five points. Laura Quinn-Low netted twice in the opening ten minutes of the second half to secure their twelfth win of the season, despite Katherine Long grabbing a late consolation for Enfield.
Leyton Orient ensured the gap remained the same as they also won 2-1, beating fellow hopefuls Ipswich Town. Sophie Le Marchard scored a goal in each half for the O's, while Ipswich's reply came from Natasha Thomas.
Norwich City kept their hopes of climbing out of the bottom two alive by winning 4-3 away to Haringey Borough. Vivian Mayo was on target along with Sasha Diston and Chelsea Garrett, with the home side responding through a Julia Carruthers brace and Jonea Peter.
South West Division One
One match managed to beat the weather on Sunday, Brislington's home match with St Nicholas being switched to Keynsham and they produced a thrilling local derby, a late winner giving St Nicholas a 3-2 win and their third victory in four matches. St Nicholas took the lead on the half hour through Rhian Robbins and after Kim Maggs had levelled the scores, Cheryl Baber restored their advantage on the stroke of half time with a spectacular 25-yard strike. Zoe Gunter once more equalised from the penalty spot after the break following a foul on Maggs but after Rianne Lewis and Libby Bell had had opportunities to score, St Nicholas took the lead for a third and decisive time when Adele Hooper found the net with a looping header.
