Eastern Region League
Billericay Town have won promotion to the Premier Division next season after they defeated Chelmsford City 4-1 in their play-off match at Soham.
Nicola Dunsdon and Lisa Silverton each netted twice for Billericay whilst Chelmsford, who were runners-up last season but are relegated this time around, scored a consolation through Claire Pavett.
The final match of the season was played in the Premier Division and it saw Hethersett Athletic claim third place with a 3-2 victory over Stevenage Borough. Megan Todd scored twice and Jenna Thurtle the other for Hethersett, with Stevenage replying through Dominique Godbeer and Nicole Pleschky.
London & South East League
Champions Tooting & Mitcham Utd completed their successful season with a 1-1 draw against Westfield. The result means that Chichester City take the runners-up spot with Westfield finishing in fourth place.
Hemel Hempstead meanwhile claimed the Division One (London) title. The Hertfordshire side needed a victory from their final match against Luton Town Res in order to overhaul Kikk FC and they did so with a 1-0 win.
North East League
The North East Women's Regional League Premier Division title will be decided on Sunday when Huddersfield Town go to Hessle Town seeking the victory which will lift them into top spot above bon goal difference. Anything other than an away win will mean Barnsley finish top.
Last Sunday, Barnsley defeated Huddersfield 1-0 to keep the destination of the title in the melting pot right until the end, just like last season when both Barnsley and Huddersfield were involved in a five-way tussle eventually won by Sheffield FC Ladies who finished Northern Combination champions this season.
A generally tight game saw clear cut chances at a premium. Barnsley keeper Kath Hemmingway made a fine flying save to her right to push away a long range strike from Sarah Griffiths shortly after half time. At the other end Laura Carter pushed away a header at a corner. Barnsley sealed victory with five minutes left when a deep free kick into the box was met by Stacey Walstow who knocked the ball past Carter. The finish might not have been the neatest, but they all count and we will only know how much it counts this Sunday.
Town therefore suffered their first league defeat in 14 games since losing 1-0 at home to Barnsley back in early October. That Barnsley should manage to shut out Town's free scoring attack, in which Emily Heckler has been prolific, in both encounters is a very creditable achievement for, apart from September's 3-0 defeat at Sheffield Utd Community, Town have scored at least three times in each of their other 16 league games this season.
Whitley Bay are still in with a chance of third place after they won 4-1 against York City, whilst Hull City edged out Guiseley 3-2 and the game between St Francis 2000 and Durham City finished level at 2-2.
The programme in the Southern Division was completed as Wakefield Res beat AFC Preston 6-2 in the final fixture.
South West League
Keynsham Town Development picked up the result they needed to clinch the Premier Division title, a
4-2 victory over Cheltenham Town.
The Somerset side needed a win in order to overtake Larkhall Athletic and although they were pushed hard by Cheltenham, Hari Sabic hit a hat-trick and Agnieszka Ziolek the other to take the points while Cheltenham replied through Charlie Griffin and Natalie Potter.
West Midlands League
Hereford Pegasus banished any lingering relegation fears and are set to finish in mid-table in the Premier Division after they scored seven without reply against Lichfield Diamonds.
The late withdrawal of Withymoor has meant a re-calculation of the Division One North table but it does not affect the destination of the title, which has gone to Stafford Town. Wyrley Ladies remain in line for second after they defeated Kidsgrove 1-0 but Bedworth Utd still have hopes remaining following their
3-1 victory over Prees Raiders. Chasetown won 3-1 against FC Reedswood and will finish in fifth place.
Walsall claimed a third place position for themselves in Division One South, thanks to a 2-1 victory over Birmingham Athletic. Southam Utd meanwhile beat Redditch Utd to ensure they will finish outside of the bottom three.
