Kingstonian can celebrate their survival this weekend as they welcome second-place Hornchurch in the Isthmian League Premier Division. 

Despite defeat last weekend at the hands of Cray Wanderers, Kingstonian confirmed their place at this level for another year after Bowers and Pitsea were beaten by Hornchurch. 

Hornchurch know they will have to win the play-offs if they are to earn promotion after Bishop's Stortford won the Isthmian League Premier Division title. 

Kick-off at Imperial Fields is at 3pm on Saturday.

Chelsea Women face the first leg of their Champions League semi-finals against Barcelona Femeni this weekend. 

The Blues face a rematch of the 2021 final, which saw Barcelona run out as 4-0 winners and Chelsea will be hoping for revenge for that game as they hope to make their second ever final. 

The Blaugrana have been to three of the last four finals and have only lost one match this season across all competitions, in the group stage against Bayern Munich Frauen. 

Kick-off at Stamford Bridge is at 12.30pm on Saturday.  

Hampton and Richmond face a Concord Rangers side in desperate need of a win to keep their survival hopes alive. 

The Beavers fine run under Mel Gwinnett to finish the season has seen them move well clear of the threat of relegation with three matches to go. 

However, their opponents this weekend need a result as they are six points from safety with three games remaining and likely need three points if they are to hunt down Dulwich Hamlet. 

Kick-off at Thames Road is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hanwell Town will hope to finish their season on a high as they face already-relegated Hartley Wintney this weekend. 

The Geordies will be proud of their first ever season in the seventh tier as they have already booked their place at the level for another year. 

Hartley Wintney have already been relegated with one game to go having only picked up one win in their last seven matches. 

Kick-off at the Powerday Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday. 

Hanworth Villa can turn their attentions to the play-offs after booking their spot in the post season ahead of the last game of the regular season. 

One point for the Villains will see them guarantee a play-off semi-final against Marlow rather than whichever of Basingstoke Town and Walton and Hersham misses out on the league title. 

Their opponents this weekend are Chipstead who are playing for nothing as their top half finish is already confirmed. 

Kick-off at High Road is at 3pm on Saturday. 

It is the Capital Cup final double header this weekend for Brentford Women and Brentford Women B at Bedfont Sports Club. 

The Bees moved back to the top of the L&SEWFL Division One North last weekend and will hope to secure the first leg of a potential league and cup double this weekend. 

Dorking Wanderers have beaten the Bees twice already this season by an aggregate score of 14-3. 

Kick-off at Bedfont Sports Club is at 1pm.
