Radcliffe Olympic caused a huge shock as they eliminated Durham Women from the F.A.Women's Cup with a 2-0 victory.
The FAWPL Midland Division One side ousted their FA WSL 2 opponents and are now the only team from the fourth tier remaining in the competition. Rania Ramadan and Brogan Jones scored the goals to take Sam Winch's side into the Fourth Round for the first time in their history.
Radcliffe will now face Sheffield FC who ran out 5-0 winners over C & K Basildon. All of the goals came in the second half, Emma Johnson giving them the lead and Jodie Michalska then netted twice in quick succession. Michalska went on to add two more goals in the last five minutes, taking her personal haul to four on the day.
The last Regional League team bowed out but were far from disgraced when going down 3-0 to Millwall Lionesses. After an even start to the game with opportunities at both ends, Lillie Billson opened the scoring for Millwall just before the half hour and 16-year-old Rinsola Babajide added a second ahead of the break. With four minutes later, Cherrelle Albert netted the third to seal a first win for new manager Dan Mlinar and a trip to Portsmouth in the next round.
Bradford City ended the fine Cup run of FC Reedswood by beating them 5-0. Molly-Mae Sharpe, Rachel Lee, Sarah Danby, Abigail Barker and an own goal saw City set up a Yorkshire derby tie against Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Sam Pittuck and Charley Clifford scored the goals as Charlton Athletic broke the resistance of Wolverhampton Wanderers with a 2-0 victory, to seal an intriguing Fourth Round tie against Reading FC Women (see match report).
Reading themselves came through an awkward tie away to Crystal Palace with a 3-0 victory. Emma Follis marked her debut for the Royals by giving them the lead in the 20th minute and Bonnie Horwood added a second before the break via a powerful 20-yard strike. Melissa Fletcher rounded off the win by heading in the final goal, fifteen minutes from time.
