London & South East League
The bad weather and County Cup duties meant that only one match went ahead in the league over the weekend.
In Division One (London), Brentford returned to form and put distance between themselves and the teams below them by beating Enfield Town Res 4-1.
South West League
Two matches were played in the Premier Division on Sunday and involved the four teams at the foot of the table. Bristol Ladies Union may not be in that region for much longer given their current form, they made it four wins in five matches when beating Taunton Town 5-0. In the other game, Poole Town put an end to their 12-game losing run as they picked up a point in a 1-1 draw away to Oldland Abbotonians. Jess Britton put Oldland in front before Poole equalised through a late free kick from Bev Symes.
In the Eastern Division, Forest Green Rovers Res moved to within two points of leaders Cirencester Town with a 5-1 victory away to Downend Flyers. Bishop's Lydeard and Swindon Spitfires meanwhile battled out a 1-1 draw which did neither team any favours. Holly Miller netted for the home side, with the Spitfires replying through April Poulden.
Only one game was played in the Western Division but it gave Yeovil Town Res a chance to rekindle hopes of a top two finish by beating Roche 2-0, Michelle Yeowell scoring both of their goals.
Southern Region League
Southampton Saints stepped up their bid for a possible League and Cup 'double' as they stormed into the quarter finals of the League Cup with a 10-0 victory over Banbury Utd. Krystal Whyte, Roxy-Lee Stewart, Chelsea Owton and Gemma Simmonds all netted doubles for last season's beaten finalists, with Kirsty Spencer and Louisa Castle adding the others.
In the Premier Division, Slough returned to winning ways as they defeated Henley Town 5-1 to return to a mid-table position. Kerry O'Connor led the scoring with a hat-trick, with Vicki Blackburn and Kim McClenn also on target.
Woodley Saints extended their lead at the top of Division One to four points, they won 1-0 against Southampton Saints Res whilst second placed Southampton Women drew 0-0 away to Reading Ladies. Newbury Ladies & Girls closed in on a top half place after beating Reading Girls 5-2.
West Midlands League
The Premier Division saw the only action in the league on Sunday with games in the other two divisions and the respective League Cup semi finals being postponed.
There were plenty of goals on offer at Hereford Pegasus as visitors Stratford Town claimed an important 5-4 victory which took them level on points with leaders Solihull Ladies. In the other game, Worcester City made sure that they are now one point off the pace in third, thanks to a 1-0 win at Hereford Phoenix.
