East Midlands League
Leicester City Women Development clinched the Premier Division title on Sunday, following a 3-3 draw with Oughtibridge WMSC. Oughtibridge had won 5-1 when the pair met a fortnight earlier and they needed to better that and record a 7 goal victory margin to effect a double figure swing in goal difference to topple City from top spot. Lauren Bartle, Jade Benford, and Megan Kenney netted the all-important goals for City, whist Millie Kenyon, Kathryn Mudge and Sam Woodham replied for Oughtibridge who finish third behind Peterborough Utd. Kettering Town meanwhile won 2-1 against Rise Park, thanks to a brace from Laura Beckett.
In Division One South, Corby Town are off the bottom of the table following their 3-2 victory against Loughborough Foxes Vixens, whose goals came from Emma Kirkland and Leandra Whelband.

Royston Town had actually started the day in the runners-up position but crashed to an 8-1 defeat at the hands of Peterborough Northern Star. Katie Steward led the scoring for Northern Star with a four-goal haul, Leah Cudone weighed in with a double and there was one apiece from Vicky Gallagher and Emma Pollard.
Meanwhile in Division One, Rachel Skinner netted four times as King's Lynn Town won 6-2 away to Bishop's Stortford, with Jodie Hopkins-Duckhouse and Annie Rooks adding the others.
