QPR's survival is confirmed. They did it!

QPR Ladies avoid relegation from the Southern Division ...

QPR LADIES can look forward to lining up in The FA Women’s Premier League (FA WPL) Southern Division once more after confirmation their place is secure for another season.
 
It follows the recent FA WPL Championship Play-Off, which saw Southern Division champions Tottenham Hotspur gain promotion to the FA Women’s Super League 2 courtesy of a 3-0 victory over their Northern Division counterparts Blackburn Rovers.
 
Spurs’ victory means Rangers, despite finishing bottom of the table on goal difference, will avoid relegation to FA WPL South East Division One.



At West Ham, they've appointed a fresh new managing director for the Ladies side. And he just happens to be the son of the owner David Sullivan:

Karen Ray is general manager, and Greg de Carnys has some kind of double job with the first-team and academy. So, who exactly is in charge?

This comes after West Ham Ladies went public on how the club withheld funding and facilities from the women's team.

Jack Sullivan says he isn't receiving a wage as managing director, which doesn't really inspire any confidence.

Tranmere Rovers may be heading down to the regional leagues after relegation from level 4, but they've been given £3,000 to develop women's futsal by the Football Foundation.

Also saw a very happy post from Rotherham United saying that they had been reprieved to remain in FAWPL Division One Midlands, having finished second to last.

Still waiting to hear if Yeovil Town Intermediate will be allowed in FAWPL Division One South West. I've heard two versions ......
