Northern Premier Division
One match was played in the division on Sunday, Huddersfield Town keeping their hopes of the runners-up spot alive with a 6-0 victory over Nottingham Forest. Kate Mallin gave Huddersfield an early lead, before Lucy Sowerby, Laura Elford and Lucy Roberts all scored in the five minute spell leading up to half time. Mallin netted her second goal ten minutes after the restart, with Ellie White rounding off the scoring midway through the second half.
Southern Premier Division
Cardiff City Ladies are back in the top two following their 3-2 victory over Plymouth Argyle. Cerys Jones and Kylie Nolan put Cardiff two ahead during the first half, before Cori Williams made it three on the hour. It was to be a nervy end for the home side though as Leah Burridge and Natasha Knapman brought Plymouth back into the game but Cardiff held on for three valuable points and brought an end to Argyle's four-match winning run.
Watford won 1-0 away to Gillingham and are looking set for a top half finish. Katie O'Leary settled matters with the only goal of the game, midway through the second half.
On Tuesday night, Cardiff City Ladies further enhanced their chances of the runners-up by winning 3-2 at Oxford Utd. The U's led at half time through a goal from Ellie Noble but Grace Horrell and Kylie Nolan scored in quick succession to put Cardiff in front and Gwennan Davies added a third. Gemma Sims pulled a goal back for Oxford with fifteen minutes remaining but Cardiff need to win one of their remaining two games to be sure of second place.
Division One North
Chester-le-Street Town are one win away from securing the runners-up position following their 2-1 victory over Bolton Wanderers. Nichole Havery netted a goal in each half for the Cestrians, whilst Bolton's reply came from Safron Newhouse.
Barnsley meanwhile scored eight times without reply past Crewe Alexandra, a result which looks likely to guarantee them at least a top four place. Drew Greene hit a first half hat-trick and she was joined on the scoresheet by Annie Ward, Shannon Durkin, Kathryn Smith, Ellie Brightmore and Sophie Bell.
Division One Midlands
West Bromwich Albion made it 18 wins out 18 on Sunday and this was the result they required to confirm themselves as Champions. Six different players got on the scoresheet as Albion ran out 7-0 winners over Steel City Wanderers. Jessica Davies, Keeley Davies, Laura Davies, Trina Greaves, Natalie Murray and Francesca Orthodoxou all netted a goal apiece, with an own goal completing the tally.
Division One South East
Newly crowned Champions Crawley Wasps notched up another win on Sunday, a 2-1 success away to Ipswich Town. Suzy Davis netted a late winner for Crawley, to add to Faye Rabson's earlier strike, whilst the home side scored through Zoe Cossey.
Luton Town look set to finish in the bottom two after going down to a 4-2 defeat at home to second placed Billericay Town. Sam Pittuck, Karissa Rodney, Karen Stephanou and Zoe Rushen were all on target for Billericay, with Luton's replies coming from Remi Bains and Kimberley Newns.
AFC Wimbledon damaged Enfield Town's hopes of a top three finish by beating them 3-2. Sian Wylie gave Wimbledon a fifth minute lead but Enfield hit back to lead at the break, thanks to a Molly Peters double. Becky Sargent levelled matters again with eight minutes remaining and Rosie Russell netted the winning goal for the Dons, deep into injury time.
Division One South West
Larkhall Athletic secured a top six position for themselves, in what has been something of a transitional season, when they defeated Maidenhead Utd 3-0. The Larks got off to a flying start and were ahead after just 20 seconds thanks to Kate German, with Lizzie Barratt adding a second and Mel Sartain rounded off the win late on with a powerful strike from the edge of the area.
