Fulham Women in action at Millwall Lionesses (Rach Stevens-Hall)

The London and South East Regional Premier comes to a dramatic end tomorrow night with Worthing poised to steal the league title from Ebbsfleet United – if they can beat AFC Acorns. With a single promotion place to the National League up for grabs, Worthing need to win at Woodside, whilst a draw would hand the title to Ebbsfleet on goal difference. But the Kent side have to sit and watch nervously, having completed their league campaign at the weekend.

Fulham’s season finished earlier this month, securing third place for the second year in row. The Whites looked to be launching a promotion bid earlier in the year when they won at Millwall Lionesses to move within touching distance of the top two, but they ultimately paid the price for a poor run of form in the spring. The LSER Premier is an unforgiving league and taking the top spot demands a campaign filled with consistent victories. There are still moments to savour from a special season, which included a year of excellent displays from Tia Foreman, a memorable first women’s fixture at Craven Cottage in two decades capped by Georgia Heasman’s goal against AFC Wimbledon and a fabulous finale earlier this month when Fulham signed off by scoring six against Sutton.

The Whites will be targeting getting out of the fifth tier next season. Promotion is vital if Fulham, now back in the club’s stable after an academy reorganisation a couple of years ago, wish to ride the wave of growth in the women’s game. With one of Worthing or Ebbsfleet United set to stay down and reality TV stars Dorking Wanderers on their way up, winning promotion will remain a tricky task. Why not get down to Motspur Park and support the side skippered by lifelong Fulham fan Mary Southgate next season?
