United promoted to WSL
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 19 Apr 2019
 
Manchester Utd secured a top two finish for themselves in the FA Women's Championship with a 5-0 victory over Aston Villa on Wednesday night.
 
This means that Casey Stoney's team are also promoted to the FA WSL for next season subject to meeting licence criteria (no issues are foreseen).
 
Villa went into the game in good form but found themselves behind after six minutes, when Millie Turner powerfully headed in an Alex Greenwood corner. Greenwood herself scored the second from the penalty spot, after Lizzie Arnot had been brought down. Jess Sigsworth made it three ahead of the break and Ella Toone further increased United's lead early in the second half. Villa's task was made even harder when goalkeeper Sian Rogers was red carded for handball outside the area and defender Jade Richards took over between the posts. To their credit, they dug in and never gave up, only conceding once more wen Charlotte Devlin finished neatly with sixteen minutes remaining.
 
The battle is on to join United in being promoted to the top flight but on Sunday, one of the contenders, Durham Women, were beaten for only the second time this season, 2-1 by Sheffield Utd who maintained their excellent finish to the season.
 
The Blades took the lead when Rebecca Rayner's free kick into the area was latched onto by Danielle Cox who slotted in her first goal of the season. Nicki Gears forced a save from Fran Bentley at the other end but the Wildcats' task was made header when Becky Salicki was red carded for tugging back Ebony Salmon as she went through on goal. Jade Pennock doubled United's lead with her third goal in as many matches and although Beth Hepple scored a trademark free kick to give Durham fresh hope, Carla Ward's side held out to make it four wins on the trot and consolidate fifth place.
