Brighouse Town have also had a good season, finishing as runners-up, and they also ended on a winning note with a 2-1 success at Mossley Hill. Jodie Redgrave's first half brace proved to be just enough for the Yorkshire side, with Olivia Ellinson replying for the home side during the latter stages.
Liverpool Marshalls Feds end up in the top three once again and their trip to Chester-le-Street Town proved to be a successful one. Laura Bartup scored the only goal of the game as the Feds edged out the Cestrians 1-0.
Newcastle Utd have spent much of the season in the bottom half of the table, albeit with games in hand on the teams above them, and they followed up a midweek win with a 1-1 draw against Barnsley, meaning they will finish fifth. However the result could be a much more significant one for Barnsley as it means they move off the bottom, finishing above Mossley Hill by the slenderest of margins - having scored four more goals. Amy Woodruff scored what could be a vital goal for Barnsley, which give them a first half lead which was cancelled out after the break by Rebecca Olley.
Chorley will also finish in the top half following their 2-1 victory over fourth placed Bolton Wanderers. Safron Newhouse gave Bolton a first half lead but after the break, a brace from Rachel Wood saw Chorley narrowly get the better of their local rivals.

Solihull Moors came away from TNS Ladies with a 2-1 victory under their belts. Ashlea Hargreaves gave them a first half lead and Phillippa Harmison added a second after the break, Laura Morris responded for TNS six minutes later but Solihull held out for the three points.
Long Eaton Utd completed what can only be described as a 'season of two halves' with a 4-2 success at Steel City Wanderers. After losing eight of their first nine matches, Long Eaton have ended the campaign in spectacular form with seven wins and a draw in their last eight, including winning all of the last five away from home. Cara Newton scored a hat-trick and Jade Arber added the other, with the Steels' goals coming from Cheryl Mawhood and Abby Pike.

South East Division One
Milton Keynes Dons' perfectly timed run of form has brought reward as they sealed the title with a thirteen-goal victory against Haringey Borough.
