Newly crowned Champions Sheffield FC are ending the season in winning form, running out 5-0 victors over Salford Ladies. Carla Ward netted twice, with the others coming from Stacy Elliott, Lisa Giampalma and Mel Cook.
Hollie Barker and Leanne Severns were on target as Sheffield Wednesday picked up the result they needed to clinch the runners-up spot and a play-off place, a 2-1 midweek victory away to Tranmere Rovers who are condemned to relegation.
South Durham RA will finish in fourth place after they added to Tranmere's woes by beating them 2-0.
Mossley Hill have spent much of the season in the relegation zone but their fine end of season form means that they will end the campaign with a top half place after they shared a goalless draw with Bradford City which lifts them into fifth, two places above their opponents.
Sporting Club Albion need to avoid defeat this Sunday against Rotherham Utd in order to clinch the league title.
They were handed a huge boost on Sunday as Rotherham went down to a 2-1 defeat at home to Stoke City. Nat Shaw did give Rotherham the lead before Stoke hit back after the break to take the points through Becci Knight and Kate Asher.
This meant that Rotherham went into their midweek game with Wolverhampton Wanderers needing nothing less than a victory to keep their hopes alive, which they duly did as goals from Amy Pollock and Carla Baxby gave them the points.
South East Combination
Norwich City have taken the runners-up spot to keep their promotion hopes alive, clinching the place with a 6-0 victory over Ebbsfleet Utd. Chelsea Garrett and Paige Shorten each netted twice, with Hayley Peverley and Charlie Branch adding the others for Norwich who will soon discover who their play-off opponents from the South West Combination will be.
Ipswich Town meanwhile rounded off their season with a 3-0 win away to Enfield Town, Amy Howlett scoring twice and Jenna Liverpool adding the other.
Tottenham Hotspur's hopes of a League and Cup 'double' were brought to an end as they went out of the League Cup at the semi final stage, beaten on penalties by Luton Town following a 2-2 draw.
Rebecca Kane had earlier netted for Luton who took the game into the shootout when Candice Davies scored in the final minute of extra time. Both teams scored all five of their initial spot kicks but when Spurs missed their first in sudden death, Kane fired home the winning penalty to send Luton into this Sunday's Final where they will play Cambridge Women. The two teams met in the league on Tuesday night, battling out a 1-1 draw.
South West Combination
Champions Plymouth Argyle moved a step closer towards completing an unbeaten season when they shared a 1-1 draw with Newquay. An own goal accounted for Argyle's strike, with Kirsty Lang on target for Newquay.
Cullompton Rangers ensured that they will finish just below mid-table after they ran out 3-1 winners over Southampton Saints, who are still in the bottom two with one match left to play.
