The first League Cup group matches took place in the FA WSL Development League and in Group One, Reading FC Women were 4-1 winners over Chelsea. Two penalties in the first few minutes put Reading in control, first Lauren Bruton was brought down and converted the spot kick herself, and just a few minutes later a challenge on the left of the area was penalised and Cheryl Williams blasted the kick home. Fran Kirby hit the woodwork twice before Chelsea pulled a goal back just before half time from a shot on the edge of the area by Rosanna Ayane. The second half saw chances at either end, and an accidental kick in the face for Chelsea keeper Rebecca Bull which meant she had to leave the field, with captain Laura Rafferty taking over between the posts for the last fifteen minutes. Good work down the left by Kirby set up goals for Bruton and substitute Rebekah Haines. In the other game, Arsenal beat London Bees 2-1, Bianca Bragg scoring a last minute winner to add to Carla Humphrey's earlier strike.
Everton got off to a good start in Group Two, Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah hitting a hat-trick along with Marley Forster and Lucy Whipp in their 5-2 victory over Doncaster Rovers Belles.
