First title for western women

Peel have secured their first ever women’s league title.

Maxine Smalley’s strike just before half-time was enough to earn a 1-1 draw against Douglas Royal at Ballafletcher and, with it, the Regency Travel Championship.

It completes a double for the westerners who clinched the FA Cup a fortnight ago.

The match was a tense affair with so much at stake.

Royal took an early lead through Donna Shimmin before Smalley struck the all-important leveller.

Elsewhere, deposed champions Corinthians defeated Old Boys 4-1.

Two goals from Jade Burden and one apiece from Lisa Costain and Shannon Groves ensured Amy Beggs-Cairney’s reply was a consolation.

Gymns defeated Douglas Athletic 2-0.
