SSE Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
New Milton Town were pushed all the way by Frampton Rangers but managed to progress to the Second Round Qualifying with a 3-2 victory, thanks to a Tiffany Skinner brace and Olivia Jones. The Southern Region League side now take on Downend Flyers who defeated local rivals AEK Boco 9-0, Kate Michael and Alana Willson each hitting hat-tricks with Alice Baker, Rebecca Giles and Laura Tugwell completing the scoring.
Downend Flyers was formed by Sue Hiscox in September 1992 with just five girls at the very first training session. It has continued to expand over the years and they are now a charter standard club and run teams from Under-8s right through to the ladies. The success of the youth system is continuing to pay dividends as four of this season's squad have progressed from last year's Under-18 team. They are Mae Hawkins, Rebecca Giles, Ella Thresher and Chloe Morley.
The ladies' team plays in the South West Women's Football League. They won the Eastern Division title in 2011-12, along with the Bristol Soccerworld Cup, as well as the league and GFA Women's Cup double in previous seasons.
Manager is Shaun Fisher who has been at the club for many years, starting as manager and coach of an Under-10s team and continuing through each age group until stepping up to become the ladies' manager this year. Captain is Kate Michael who is also the longest serving player at the club starting her 12th season, having also spent two years at Under-10 level with the club.
