Long Eaton have landed another plum tie in the First Round draw, at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers who came through a difficult game themselves with a 3-0 win away to TNS Ladies. The home side have enjoyed good times in the Cup recently but Laura McQuilkin gave Wolves a sixteenth minute lead which was doubled before the break by Jenni Anslow, with Anna Perks netting the third midway through the second half.
Last season, Lowestoft Town led the Regional League giant killers with a fabulous Cup run but this time around, they were on the receiving end themselves when they went down 8-1 to London Corinthians. On a good day for the London & South East League, Emily Hart, Hannah Titchener and Hannah Riddoch all scored twice with Adele Keech and Danielle Harrison adding the others. Corinthians will now be at home to Gillingham who defeated Herne Bay 3-0 in their local derby. Kallie Balfour scored a goal in each half for the Gills and Ashleigh Loosemore was also on target.
Fulham FC Foundation were the third side on the day to knock out higher league opposition when they beat St Nicholas 2-0 with goals from Kirsty Percival and Verity Snow (see match report). They will have another chance to do so in the next round against Enfield Town who were another team given a hard match by lower league opposition before making it through, this time against Great Shelford. Annie Beganovic scored the only goal of the game to see Enfield to a 1-0 victory.
A solitary strike just before the hour mark from Molly Turnbull ensured that Whitley Bay were narrow 1-0 winners over Woolton Ladies in a closely fought tie. The North East side must wait to discover who their next opponents will be as they will travel to the winners of the postponed tie between Tranmere Rovers and Steel City Wanderers.
Chester-le-Street were another team to get past tricky opponents when they won 3-1 against Brighouse Town, goals coming from Hayley English (2) and Rae Taylor with Jodie Redgrave replying. The Cestrians face a long journey as they must go to Morecambe, who ended the fine Cup run of Hartlepool Utd by beating them 6-3. Becky Whittingham netted two of the goals, including one from the penalty spot, and the others came from Emma Kay, Hannah Paling, Jenny Keane and Megan Doherty.
Mossley Hill defeated Blackburn Community 4-2, first half goals from Carla Lee, Paige Lindsay, Sophie Perry and Megan Brodie ending the challenge of the North West League side. They have a home tie with Liverpool Marshalls Feds who progressed with an impressive 3-1 victory away to Middlesbrough. Charlotte Apps, Emily Douglas and Rachel Davison were all on target for the Feds with 'Boro's consolation being scored by Nyci Thorns.
In the only all-Regional League tie, Stone Dominoes emerged as 3-1 winners over Coventry Development. Mollie Prime scored two of the goals for Stone and she was joined on the scoresheet by Hayley Mason. The West Midlands League side are now away to either Nettleham or Leicester City Women.
Shanice Jimenez netted twice with Zara Carroll and Shannon Pratt adding the others as Luton Town ended the hopes of Marlow by beating them 4-1. This sets up a local derby tie in the next round with Bedford Ladies, who also produced a good result in winning 2-0 away to giant killers Wymondham Town, courtesy of a brace of goals from Becky Vass.
The highest victory on the day was recorded by Peterborough Northern Star who scored eight times without reply against Hemel Hempstead Town.

They will be home again in the next round to the winners of the tie between Burton Albion and Radcliffe Olympic.
Hannah Barrett, Leah Cudone and Lauren Goodier scored the goals for Milton Keynes Dons as they came away from Ipswich Town with a 3-2 victory under their belts, Natasha Thomas and Sophie Welton replying for the Tractor Girls. The Dons now face one of the ties of the round as they will be up against Crystal Palace, 2-1 winners at Denham Utd thanks to goals from Freya Holdaway and Roschelle Shakes.
Swindon Town emerged as 3-2 winners from a well contested tie with Larkhall Athletic at Plain Ham. Swindon led by two goals at half time courtesy of Sally Butterfield and Chyna Collings but Kate German pulled one back when she headed in an Adele Hooper cross. Michelle Rich then scored direct from a corner to restore the visitors' two-goal lead but they needed to withstand a late onslaught from the Larks after German had scored her second, following up to score the rebound after Robyn Levett had saved her initial pentalty. Swindon will be away to either Old Actonians or Southampton Saints in the next round.
Despite their squad being severely depleted with injuries, Keynsham Town produced an impressive performance in beating Maidenhead Utd 5-0. Leanne Lapham netted two of the goals and there was one apiece from Justine Lorton-Radburn, Kim Cheffey and Naomi Nash. This means they will make either a short trip to AEK Boco, now the last remaining County League side in the competition, or a much longer journey to Chichester City.
