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.
