The Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
Southampton FC were pushed all the way by Chesham United, with only an eleventh minute goal by Ella Pusey separating the sides as Martina Heath's team reached the Second Round for the first time. They will be away to Yeovil Town who have been exempt in the tournament until now.
Yeovil Town was founded in 1990 as Yetminster Womens with the first ever game being against Weymouth Vikings on 16 September 1990, resulting in a 2-2 draw. Previous team names were: 1990 - 1993 Yetminster Ladies FC, 1993 - 1999 Sherborne Ladies FC.
Yeovil Town Women first competed in FA Women's Super League 2 in 2014 and finished in fifth place and joint third place in the following 2015 season. The club's most recent success and biggest achievement is being crowned Women's Super League 2 Champions (2016) and gaining promotion to WSL 1.
Yeovil Town Women acquired full time professional status ahead of the 2018-19 WSL season and won their first competitive fixture in the top flight, as a professional side against Everton Ladies at home on 4th November 2018, with Hannah Short's goal winning the game 1-0. Sadly they were controversially relegated two levels at the end of the season and are currently competing in the FAWNL Southern Premier Division.
Jamie Sherwood, who led the club to the WSL 2 title in 2016, recently returned to the role and Ewan Greenhill is Head of Performance, whilst Sarah Wiltshire is the team's leading goalscorer.
