Thanks to the wet weather that was experienced across England, approximately half of the games arranged for this weekend had to be postponed. There was a relatively small number of league matches scheduled, due to an extensive programme of county cup ties, but the poor conditions meant that a total of only six games were played across all six divisions of the WPL, and it was a similar story throughout the regional leagues.

The pitches in Wales fared better against the weather however, with all five matches going ahead as planned. Swansea extended their lead at the top of the table to four points, courtesy of a 3-0 win against bottom-placed Briton Ferry Llansawel and Abergavenny’s 1-0 home defeat at the hands of Cardiff City.

In the WPL Northern Division Blackburn Rovers took over the top spot, overtaking Middlesbrough with a 4-0 defeat of Leicester City Women. It’s as you were in the South though as all three Southern Division games fell victim to the conditions.

Mossley Hill Athletic won the battle of the bottom two teams in Northern Division One, lifting themselves off the foot of the table with a 4-0 win away to Tranmere Rovers. Midlands Division One leaders held onto first place despite a surprise 5-1 defeat to Long Eaton United – only the second time they’ve lost in the league this season. South East and South West Division One were both complete wash-outs with no play possible in either division.

Top scorers of the weekend were Keynsham Town. They hammered Frome Town 22-0 to move into the final of the Somerset Women’s Senior Cup, where they will face the winner of the postponed game between Brislington and Bishops Lydeard.

N.B. There are still a couple of county cup fixtures where is result is not known. These were in all probability postponed, but we haven’t seen any confirmation of this yet.
