Budleigh Salterton, Leeds United U-21s, Pen Mill, Weymouth and Worcester City DS are all celebrating Women’s County League titles.

Budleigh Salterton sealed the Devon League Eastern Division after a narrow 2-1 defeat of Bradninch, in which came Kirsty Brown off the bench to score twice. Budleigh have still two games left but title rivals Exeter City Reserves were beaten 5-1 at West Exe Park Rangers in their final game and Axminster Town won but can no longer catch Budleigh.

Leeds United U-21s won West Riding Division 1 with four points from a double header against title rivals Morley Town. Lois Appleyard bagged a brace and there was also a goal from Heidi Parry in a 3-1 victory, while the other game was goalless.

Pen Mill’s far superior had all but secured them the Somerset Division 1 top spot ahead of Stockwood Wanderers and Bishops Lydeard Reserves. A 6-3 success away to Banwell then made entirely sure of the silverware.

Weymouth beat Morley Cobham Sports 4-0 away to take the Dorset League title. Dani Ackerman got a double,   Shakira Howard and Emma Potter also on target.

Worcester City Development’s final game saw them clinch the Midwest Counties League with a 7-1 result at basement side Meadow Park. Substitute Georgia Marrett hit a hat-trick despite starting on the bench.
