Five-star Ferns close in on title

Women's Premier Division: Ferns United 5, East End United 2: The home side made it six wins from six games and closed the gap on leaders Seaview to two points when overcoming East End United.

Played on a decent surface despite the poor weather conditions, both sides produced some good football with Laura Doorley scoring both goals for East End.

However, goals from Josie Dwyer, Aoife Devereux, Mary O'Neill, Leona Breen and Johanna Barcoe secured a vital win for Ferns as they edge closer and closer to the Premier title.

Curracloe United 0, Adamstown FC 2: Both these sides completed their seasons, with Adamstown consolidating third place and relegating a young Curracloe side with this 2-0 win.

Despite making a quick return to Division 1, Curracloe can be proud of their season and if they can build on this for next term, they will be strong contenders for the Division 1 title.

Jasmine Thorpe and Sandra Thorpe were on target for an Adamstown side who have showed themselves worthy of their place in the top division.

After this match, Curracloe United were presented with the Under-18 Premier League trophy by League Vice-Chairman Barry Dempsey.

They won this title on Saturday when Cloughbawn were unable to field a team for their scheduled fixture, with Curracloe showing their dominance at this age group by winning this title for the third time in a row.

Women's Division 1

North End United 3, Piltown FC 1: North End rounded off the season with a perfect record of ten wins from ten games and have shown themselves to be worthy champions. They could be a side that will do very well in the Premier Division next season.

Piltown stayed with them for long periods in this game but in the end the home side's clinical finishing proved to be the difference between thesides.

Emily O'Mahoney was on target for the visitors but goals from Martina Pender, Lauren Roche and Sara Byrne gave North End United victory.
