The Second Round Qualifying is nearly complete after Sunday's matches and on this weekend, all of the FA Women's National League teams playing lower league opposition safely made it through.
St Albans Ladies were closest to causing an upset as they took Cambridge City to extra time before going down 4-3 to the Division One South East side. Beatrice Fitzsimons and Megan Tonks scored the goals for City, who will now be at home to AFC Basildon, whilst Kayla Johnson, Eleanor Lovelock and Holly Rossington all replied for St Albans, who had been the last remaining County League side in the competition.
Norton & Stockton Ancients came through a difficult tie away to Redcar Town with a 3-1 victory. Bianca Owens netted a brace for Norton and Shannon Reed was also on target, with Redcar's consolation coming from Jess Round. Norton will be at home in the next round to Durham Cestria.
Masa Butler scored twice and Sophie John added the other as Stockport County won 3-1 away to Mossley Hill. The result earns Stockport a home tie with Brighouse Town, who were 5-1 victors at FC United of Manchester. Arianne Parnham and Charlotte Proud each bagged braces for Brighouse, with Annabelle Cass also on the scoresheet.
The tie between Farsley Celtic and Liverpool Feds had been abandoned seven days earlier after torrential rain had made the pitch unplayable, but the teams were able to complete the tie at the second attempt and it was the Feds who ran out 4-1 winners. Natalie Clark, Abby Pope, Carla Lee and Demi Devereaux were all on target for the Feds who are still to learn who their next opponents will be, as the tie between Northwich Vixens and Altrincham again fell victim to the weather, one of three still to be decided.
Norwich City meanwhile edged past Cambridge Utd with a 3-2 victory in their all-National League clash. Millie Daviss, Keunna Dill and Aimee Durrant scored the goals for Norwich, with the U's replying through a brace from Kayleigh-Anne Burt.
This win helped to set up an East Anglian derby tie in the next round between Norwich and Ipswich Town, who had a smoother passage through when beating Royston Town 7-0. Maddie Biggs, Eloise King and Amanda Crump all scored twice for in-form Ipswich, with Lindsey Cooper adding the other goal.
Southampton FC will be at home to Poole Town after scoring eight times without reply past Buckland Athletic. Rachel Panting led the scoring with a hat-trick, Georgie Freeland weighed in with a double and also on target were Sophia Pharoah, Shannon Albuery and Chloe Newton.
