Whitley Bay are the fourth Regional League club to make it through to the Second Round of the FA Women's Cup but ended the dreams of Middleton Athletic, the last surviving County League side, with a 2-1 victory.
Lisa Coleman gave Whitley the lead midway through the first half after a Donna Brown corner had not been cleared and, after Middleton equalised from the penalty spot, Amy O'Brien broke through to score what proved to be the winning goal on the stroke of half time. Whitley reached the Fourth Round stage three years ago and they now have a plum tie against Leeds City Vixens of the Premier League.
Middlesbrough also booked themselves a meeting with Premier League opposition by beating Stockport County 2-0. Sarah Manning and Danni Scarr scored the goals which mean that 'Boro will travel to play Curzon Ashton.
Liverpool Feds came through a tricky tie against Morecambe and their next opponents will be Newcastle Utd. Gill Hart scored twice, with Gemma Perischine and Chantelle Thompson also on target to give the Feds a 4-3 victory over their North West League opponents.
Stoke City also won by the odd goal in seven away to Sheffield Utd Community and they now host Cambridge Women.

Wolverhampton Wanderers ended the challenge of West Midlands League high riders Solihull Ladies with a 4-0 victory.

Sporting Club Albion also ensured themselves an intriguing Second Round tie after they won 3-0 away to Radcliffe Olympic. In one of the ties of the round, Kim Bebbington, Kayleigh Steele and Ashleigh Neville all found the net for Albion who now take on Aston Villa.
Rotherham Utd took their free scoring league form into the Cup as they ran out 11-1 winners over Daventry Town. Katie Hemming gave Rotherham the lead after just 90 seconds and Paige Crossman added a second with the first of her hat-trick. Hemming went on to complete her double and further goals came from Kirsty Richardson (2), Zuzana Pramukova (2), Nat Shaw and Amy Pollock with Laura Coulson scoring Daventry's consolation. Rotherham will now have a crack at a Premier League side with a Second Round trip to Derby County.
