Sheffield Hallam women’s first team dominated their opponents from Durham University, but couldn’t make it count and had to settle for a frustrating 0-0 draw.

The result means that top end of the North Premier Division is still tight.

Bowdon are five points clear and with two games in hand look set to be the favourites for the title, but the one promotion spot to the national league is currently between second place Kendal and Hallam.

There is quite a way to go yet and with the sides meeting in the last game of the season in Sheffield the title could yet go down to the wire.

This week, Hallam have a tough match away at Bowdon.

The women’s second team went down 5-1 to Kingston-upon-Hull, with Alice Cundy registering a consolation goal.

This week they have the chance to get back on track when Bingley Bees come visiting (2pm at King Ecgbert School).

Earlier in the season Hallam took all three points at Bingley with a good 3-0 victory and this week should be no different.

Hallam’s thirds lost narrowly at Selby, but teenager Jemima Board again displayed her goalscoring prowess in the 4-3 defeat.

Board’s double took her to eight goals in seven matches and with another teenager, Maddie Pearce, regularly finding the net, Hallam could be set for a purple teenager, Maddie Pearce, also regularly finding the net, W3s could be entering a purple patch.

Hallam’s fourth side lost 5-0 away at Phoenix.

This weekend, they travel to Barnsley for another tough encounter.
