Meanwhile, the divisional champions FC United of Manchester Women report that "FC’s Women end league campaign unbeaten with a 10-1 victory at Curzon.
After several postponements, FC United's Women ended their league campaign, (not withstanding a fixture unlikely to be played v Northwich Vixens and awaiting a panel decision), with a 10-1 away victory against Curzon Ashton on Wednesday night. Every credit to Curzon Ashton, who despite the score line, showed some moments of real quality and endeavour, with only 10 players available on the night.
Maintaining the theme of tens, the result was the 10th consecutive league victory (24 unbeaten in all competitions) and the second successive game the women had registered 10 goals."

Keith Edleston, manager of Altrincham FC Ladies provides "A few words from the season overall and also on Sunday's away win at league runners-up West Didsbury and Chorlton...
Well that's it for 2017/18 and what an amazing season it's been! We have the Development Team winning the Cheshire Women's Division 2 with style and the first team finishing in their highest ever position in the North West Regional League 1, absolutely awesome!
On Sunday, the first team finished their season with a fantastic 4-1 away victory at runners-up West Didsbury & Chorlton. Make no mistake about it, West are a very good team and for our girls to go there and do that, especially in the sweltering conditions, was nothing short of fantastic!
Two goals from Jess Hartopp and one apiece from Megan Rowley and Jade Hesketh sealed the win. Every player played her part yesterday and gave her all, and more, for the shirt. We hope both teams have done the Club and all our supporters proud over the season.
It's time now to recharge and come back next season, aiming high once again. Massive thanks go to all our followers and supporters who have been brilliant this season, home and away, and thanks to all our sponsors as, without them, we would not be in the place we are. There will still be updates on Twitter (@altrinchamfcl) and our Facebook page (Altrincham FC Ladies) during the close season so keep your eyes peeled for some exciting news".

In its inaugural season, Altrincham FC Ladies Development team has lifted the league title. Keith Edleston, manager of Altrincham FC Ladies writes, "Well done to our Development Team who, following the news that rivals Earlestown had drawn their game on Sunday, had it confirmed that they are now Cheshire Women's Division Two champions. It has been a superb effort from all the girls in their first season. Also Dave and John deserve a huge 'well done' as they have guided the girls so well. The team will now progress into Division One".
Together with the men's first team receiving their EvoStik NPL title trophy on Saturday, it has been a great weekend for the Football Club.
