The latest County Women’s League title winners are; Albrighton, Bolton Wanderers, Bournville, Bradley Stoke, Bury, Caister, Colney Heath Reserves, Millbrook, Sticker and Wells City.

Albrighton finished top of Staffordshire Division 2 but by just a single point from both Shifnal Town and Hednesford Town, although having a much better goal-difference. With their fixtures finished, Albrighton were left hoping that Hednesford would fail to win their last match, Shifnal doing the leaders a big favour by winning 2-1 to end up second.

Bolton Wanderers had three title rivals going into their penultimate game in the Lancashire Premier Division, defeating one of those in securing top spot. Madison Hardman scored twice in a 5-2 win over Fleetwood Town Wrens Reserves, which also put them out of reach of second-placed Stanwix.

Bournville are going up to the Birmingham Premier after winning Division 1 with a 5-1 defeat of Continental Star. The three points took them beyond the reach of Alvechurch, who are similarly unbeaten so far.

Bradley Stoke pipped Whitchurch & Bristol to the Gloucestershire Division 3 title by a single point. Alex Thomson got the only goal in their 1-0 win at Southmead to go top in their last game.

Bury won the Greater Manchester Premier Division with a game to spare. Currently unbeaten, they went five points clear of Athletico Middleton by beating them 4-2.

Caister claimed the Norfolk Division 2 crown with one more game still to play. Bethany Turner had a five-goal haul in the 11-0 defeat of Shrublands, which ended UEA’s hopes of catching them.

Colney Heath Reserves became champions of the Beds & Herts Premier Division after their last game and just on goal-difference. They leapfrogged AFC Dunstable Blues by 13 goals with a 4-0 victory against Chipperfield Corinthians, a result which also ended Oaklands Wolves’ title hopes.

Millbrook clinched Hampshire Division 5 with a final match draw at home to their last remaining title rivals,  Southampton University. Cleo Rawlings’ goal meant that the students could no longer catch Millbrook in their concluding fixture.
