Blackburn Rovers finish the season on top of the Northern Division by a margin of ten points after their winning end to the campaign culminated with a 3-2 success away to Middlesbrough.
The Champions had to do it the hard way as 'Boro, who were still in the running for the runners-up, took a two-goal lead into half time thanks to Emma Foster and Tyler Dodds. Natasha Fenton pulled one back midway through the second half and after Natasha Flint had levelled the scores, Saffron Jordan completed the turnaround when she scored the winning goal with eleven minutes remaining.
Leicester City Women secured the highest finishing position in their history when their 4-1 victory at Bradford City ensured they would take second place. Rosie Axten has been in magnificent form in front of goal in recent weeks and she hit another hat-trick to guarantee her place at the top of the goalscoring charts. Leigh Dugmore weighed in with the other goal for Leicester, whilst the home side's consolation came from Arianne Parnham.
Stoke City are another side to have had a good season and they have ended up just two points outside of the top three, following their 4-0 victory over Derby County. Ashleigh Hayes netted twice with Ella Pemberton adding a third just before half time, Hannah Keryakoplis rounding off the scoring in the second half for Stoke whose goalkeeper Natalie Hall kept a clean sheet on her last appearance for the club.
Fylde Ladies follow on in fifth place after they won 2-1 against West Bromwich Albion, who find themselves finishing bottom of the table after the teams below them both ended the campaign with good runs. After a goalless first half, Lucy Finch gave Albion the lead within four minutes of the restart but an own goal brought the scores level and Sophie Charlton grabbed the winner for the Coasters late on.
Guiseley Vixens meanwhile claimed another win which means they will finish outside of the bottom two. Nikki Berko gave them the lead just before half time against Huddersfield Town and despite Brittany Sanderson bringing Town level after the break, Beth Stanfield scored a decisive second for Guiseley who picked up ten points from their final five matches.
Wolverhampton Wanderers finished the season with a six-match unbeaten run, which saw them win their last three games, but they must wait and see if it has been enough. On Sunday they scored five times without reply past Nottingham Forest, who end up just above them, courtesy of a goal apiece from Anna Price, Billie Haynes, Jade Cross, Chloe Williams and Charlotte Criddle.
