Regional Leagues round-up…

East Midlands League

Mansfield Town took on Lincoln Utd in an important clash near the top of the Premier Division and neither would really have been too satisfied with the resulting goalless draw. This may well have ended any lingering hopes Mansfield had of a top two finish whilst Lincoln are six points behind favourites Northampton Town having played the same number of games. Oughtibridge WM follow on after a crushing 10-1 victory over Rise Park in which Emily Fowler, Millie Kenyon and Dionne Lawton all netted doubles, with Laura Cain, Libby Hallam, Annie Longmore and Lucy Ridley adding the others. Notts County meanwhile won 3-2 away to Loughborough Students, whose goals came from Hollie Congrave and Francesca Powell.

Division One North winners Arnold Eagles rounded off their successful league campaign with a victory, 3-0 against Notts County Development. Natasha Leach was on target twice and Emma Goddard added the other goal. In the other game, Sherwood FC Women notched up their third win of the season, 2-0 away to St Josephs Rockware of Worksop thanks to a brace from Rebecca Frith.

Anstey Nomads finished their season in Division One South by winning 3-2 at Loughborough Foxes Vixens, which means they end up three points behind champions Derby County Academy. Carmelina Colangelo, Courteney Cropper and Toni Lewis all scored for Anstey, with Hannah Phillip and Amber Guest replying. Jessica Shaw (2), Caitlin Hughes and Jayda Jenkins accounted for the goals as third placed Nottingham Forest Development won 4-2 against Thrapston Town, who scored through Amelia Boddington and Emma Robinson.

Eastern Region League

Royston Town are confirmed as the runners-up to champions Wymondham Town in the Premier Division after Colney Heath, the only remaining team who could catch them, were beaten 1-0 by Wroxham. Lauren Bullard scored the only goal of the game to see her team climb above their opponents in the table and up to fourth.

The destination of the Division One South title still remains undecided but only two teams can now finish on top. Cheshunt, who completed their fixtures last week, remain on top of the table but Herts Vipers Women saw their chances come to an end as they lost 5-0 at Barking. A win would have seen the Vipers replace Cheshunt as leaders but a five-goal haul from Laura Bunton saw third placed Barking take the points. AFC Sudbury are the only other team in the race now and they need to win all of their remaining games to overhaul the table toppers. They made a good start by scoring nine times without reply past Billericay Town Development; Isabella Crawford, Evie Creaton and Amber Provan all netting twice whilst Jessica Allen, Kate Edwards and Amanda Short also got on the scoresheet. Elsewhere, Hutton ran out 5-2 winners over Leigh Ramblers.

Biggleswade Utd defeated Division One North winners Needham Market 2-1 in their Challenge Cup group match. Shauna Lawless and Tashai Simms were both on target for Biggleswade, with Abbie Fisher replying.

London & South East League

Ashford Town (Middlesex) continue to finish the season well and their 1-0 win at third placed Fulham FC Women has given them a lead of nine points. Lavana Neufville scored the only goal of the game for a result which confirms Dartford as runners-up after they defeated Millwall Lionesses 5-0. Emily Vaughan hit a hat-trick for the Darts and she was joined on the scoresheet by Nicha Dyett and Amy Panayi. Sophie Manzi (2), Saskia Philp and Hannah Baptiste were on target as Dulwich Hamlet won 4-1 away to New London Lionesses whilst Khyri McKenzie netted for Saltdean Utd in their 1-1 draw with Denham Utd, who scored through Kayleigh Currivan.

Things remain close in Division One North and Dulwich Hamlet Res are up into second place after drawing 2-2 with Hackney. A victory would have seen Dulwich go level on points with leaders Sutton Utd but despite goals from Catherine Campbell and Izzy Theodoreson, they are two points off the pace. Katie Riddington netted twice and Rebecca Lovelace the other as Watford Development won 3-2 away to Walton Casuals, whose replies came from Tiffany Skinner.

In Division One South, Hastings Utd secured the runners-up spot when scoring six times without reply past Meridian Ladies. Sian Heather netted a brace for Hastings along with Naomi Corrigan, Mia Hyland, Sophie Reed and Rebecca Relf.

Herne Bay lifted the League Trophy and denied AFC Acorns the double with a penalty shootout victory in the Final at Maidstone, after the game had finished in a 1-1 draw. Acorns got off to a good start and took a 12th minute lead through a Lauren Tyler penalty, but a good spell from Bay ended with captain Lauren Williams equalising just before half time. The second half could not produce a winner and Bay goalkeeper Sarah Cooper was her side's heroine with a vital save in the resulting shootout, meaning that Kate Foster's kick was the winner.

North East League

League leaders York City were beaten for the first time this season, 3-1 by Ossett Utd. Jordan Cheetham netted twice and Debbie Hastings the other for Ossett, whilst York's consolation came from Sophie Tinson. York still have matters in their hands, with a five point lead, whilst Ossett are now second, replacing Harrogate Town who also lost, 2-1 to South Shields. Eve Gatens and Caitlin Bates scored the goals to give South Shields the points, after Lindsey Whitton had given Harrogate the lead. Allison Ferris (2) and Nicole O'Hara were on target as Sunderland West End won 3-0 at Redcar Town, to close to within two points of their opponents, whilst Wallsend Boys Club won 5-2 away to Hartlepool Utd thanks to a Jessica Ellison brace, Eleanor Regan, Hannah Travis and Molly Turnbull.

Blyth Town continue to dominate matters in the Northern Division, going six points clear after Steph Ord (2), Katie Glendening and Jessica Hennessy earned them a 4-0 success away to Washington Association. Third placed Boro Rangers meanwhile defeated Prudhoe Town 9-1, Jade Featherstone and Abigail Phillips each scoring twice along with Lou Brown, Jessica Thomas, Sophie Hill, Jade Danks and Eve Hopson. Wallsend BC Res matched their first team in winning 5-2, against Spennymoor Town with goals from Rachel Hepple (2), Samantha Deverdics (2) and Hannah Gosnold, and Bishop Auckland edged out West Allotment Celtic by the odd goal in seven, courtesy of a goal apiece from Vikki Ryder, Natasha Napier, Chloe Geary and Katie Smith.

In the Southern Division, runners-up Altofts Ladies rounded off their season by winning 5-0 at Millmoor Juniors Ladies. Nadine Bates was on target twice along with Nicola Smith, Emma Dobson and Lauren Henshaw.

North West League

Fleetwood Town Wrens can still take a top three place in the Premier Division, and they enhanced those hopes on Sunday with a 1-0 win against West Didsbury & Chorlton, to take themselves level on points with Crewe Alexandra who are third. It has not been the best of seasons for Mossley Hill but they have ended it on a winning note, thanks to a 1-0 success away to Cheadle Town Stingers.

In Division One North, Haslingden kept their hopes of the runners-up spot alive as they defeated Preston North End 3-1. Despite the defeat, Preston are now certain of a top four finish after Penrith AFC's match with Penwortham Town finished goalless.

Curzon Ashton are confirmed as Champions of Division One South, with one match left to play, after Chester FC Women were beaten 2-1 by Runcorn Linnets. Chester will have to settle for second place, whilst Warrington Wolves Foundation and Northwich Vixens will battle it out to complete the top three. Didsbury Ladies and Wythenshawe Amateurs meanwhile battled out a 1-1 draw whilst Altrincham are out of the bottom two, as they picked up four points from a double header against West Kirby.  

South West League

AFC St Austell will have to wait until their final match of the season if they are to clinch the title after going down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 3-2 by Sherborne Town. A win would have confirmed the Cornish side as Champions but the home side, who can still finish runners-up themselves, had other ideas and rushed into a three-goal lead thanks to Becky Narramore, Kelly Snook and Olivia Watts. St Austell fought back with goals from Lucy Solloway and Charlotte Whitmore but Sherborne held on for a hard earned victory which would also have gone down well with leaders Ilminster Town.

It's as you were at the top of the Eastern Division with Swindon Town Development holding on to their two point lead by beating Chipping Sodbury Town 6-0. Charlotte Cowper was on target twice for Swindon along with Kathryn Bach, Natalie Goodright, Scarlett Colman and Maddie Sheppard. Warminster Town stayed on their heels by easing to a 3-0 success at AEK Boco, courtesy of a goal apiece from Jasmine Harris, Mia Blazey and Poppy Spratt. Keynsham Town Res and Paulton Rovers finished level at 1-1, Vicky Vipond giving Keynsham a first half lead and Alex Gwyther equalising after the break.

In the Western Division, Liskeard Athletic picked up one of the two wins they needed in order to clinch the title when they defeated Feniton 5-0. Chloe Williams led the scoring with a hat-trick and Ezme Wells added the other two.

Southern Region League

Abingdon Town are the winners of the Chairman's Cup after they defeated AFC Bournemouth Development 3-0 in the Final at Reading City FC. The scoreline at half time was goalless but midway through the second half, Tori St Clair broke the deadlock to give Abingdon the lead. Four minutes later, Hermione Prescott-Luke made it two and Chloe Ball rounded off the scoring with the third goal.

One match was played in Division One, Southampton Women Res and third placed New Milton Town battling out a 1-1 draw. An own goal for Southampton earned them a point whilst New Milton's strike came from Pearl Mortimer.

West Midlands League

Stourbridge have returned to the top of the Premier Division following a 4-0 victory away to Kidderminster Harriers. Ellie McGovern, Lili Beth Bown, Cheryl Edwards and Millie Rogers all scored a goal apiece for the Glassgirls who were further boosted by the news that one of their main rivals, Sutton Coldfield Town, were held to a 1-1 draw by City of Stoke. The home side took the lead in the second half through Tash Durham, with Chloe Finn equalising for Sutton three minutes from time. Katie Cornish and Ellie Gibbs were on target for Crusaders as they drew 2-2 with Lye Town, who scored through Sian Johnson and Sunya Salim.

After making sure of the Division One North title the previous week, Shrewsbury Town celebrated in style with a 9-2 victory against Coventry City. Madison Jones hit a hat-trick for the Shrews and Libby Vietch contributed a brace, with one apiece from Lily McShane, Zoe Child, Abbie McShane and Vikki Owen. Jenna Boddison and Holly Bullock were both on target as Shifnal Town stepped up their bid for the runners-up spot by beating Port Vale 2-0.

One match was played in Division One South, Lauren Thompson scoring twice as Cookley Sports shared a 2-2 draw with Leamington Lions, for whom Kitty Jones netted both goals.

Solihull Sporting have taken a step closer towards a potential trophy double as they reached the Final of the Division One South Cup with a 4-2 semi final victory over Knowle. Eliza Hickey scored twice for Solihull along with Evie Quinn and Lauren Smith, whilst Emma Shaw and Ebony Harris replied for Knowle.
