The FA Women’s Super League Spring Series will provide local action on Sunday with Doncaster Rovers Belles v London Bees and Sheffield FC Ladies v Everton.

For various reasons Belles have had all three scheduled League games so far postponed.

Bees top the table with seven points from 3 games. Everton won their only League game to date, while Sheffield followed their 2-1 win at Millwall with a 1-0 defeat at bogey team Durham. Sheffield lost both WSL games 1-0 to Durham last year, though they did beat them 3-1 in the Continental Tyres Cup.

Millie Kenyon 2, and Sarah Middleton gave Steel City Wanderers a 3-2 home win over Long Eaton in the FA Women’s Premier League Midlands Division One. Steels are now nine points clear of second bottom Leicester.

Barnsley, who did not have a game, surrendered top spot in the North East League Premier Division to Norton & Stockton who won to move three points clear with a game in hand.

Oughtibridge, for whom Codi Melia scored, lost 3-1 at home to Tynedale, but victory in next weekend’s home game against Wakefield will make them safe.

Southern Division leaders Farsley Celtic were 6-0 home winners over Doncaster Belles (Women) to move nine points clear of second place Sheffield Wednesday whose game against Malet Lambert fell victim to a waterlogged pitch.

Georgia Goodwin 2, Lucy Shuttleworth and Jasmine Toland scored for AFC Dronfield who completed their Sheffield & Hallam County League Division One season with a 4-1 home win over Handsworth. Huddersfield Town Academy won 4-1 at Sheffield Wednesday Reserves.

Second place Barnsley Development remain unbeaten in Division Two, Alayna Millard 2, Beth Ayrton, Kayleigh Fitzpatrick and Tasha Wiles on target in a 5-0 home win over Mexborough Athletic.

Leaders Sheffield United Reserves are assured of a top two placing, while Rovers Foundation, in third place, could nick runners up spot. Gemma Harte 5, Charlotte Dinsdale 2 and Vicky Owen were their scorers in an 8-1 home win over Shaw Lane.
