Caversham United 1 Eversley & California 3
Eversley & California took revenge for last season's FA Cup exit to Caversham at exactly the same stage of the competition. They could not have got off to a better start with Joanne Hartfield opening the scoring after only one minute. Sumayah Zayadi, still the only Goat to score this season, equalised but the goal was almost immediately cancelled out by Rebekah Pantony. Lilly-May Varney made the game safe with five minutes to go and Eversley go into the hat for the next round.
Once again, many thanks to Wanderin Tractor who made the trip over to Berkshire to cover the game.
Eversley now travel to Eastleigh where they will face Division 1 South side AFC Stoneham in the next round.
Milton United 1 Ascot United 3
Premier Division leaders Ascot United hit Milton with an absolute barrage in the opening 20 minutes of this game. Sarah Leonard, Hannah Bennett and Dominque Carrington put the Yellas three up and effectively out of sight, before Mollie Dyer scored a second half consolation for Milton.
Ascot have been drawn at home to AFC Acorns who beat Saltdean United 1-0
Tilehurst Panthers 1 Long Crendon 2
Goals from Nicole Jacobs and Emma Leith secure Crendon a place in the hat after a hard-fought 2-1 win at Scours Lane. Long Crendon will now face a trip to London and South East Premier League leaders Millwall in the next round. The Lionesses were 9-0 winners at Bromley in the last round.
Watford 0 Penn & Tylers Green 1
Watford managed to contain the dual threat of Ellie Ludgate-Williams and Sasha Smith but could do nothing to prevent Henna Hussain smashing in a winner from outside the box. A great result for Penn & Tylers Green which sets up a local derby at National League Division One South East side Chesham United in the next round.
This week's league fixtures:
Eversley & California v Carterton
Currently these two sit in the bottom two places of the table with both sides still looking for their first points of the season. Carterton will be refreshed after having a week off and Eversley will be bolstered by their FA Cup win at Caversham on Sunday afternoon. The last time they met in the league was also at Eversley, back in the 20/21 season. On that day goals from Tess Brown, Sarah Coles, Kerry O'Connor and Leah Dolloway secured a 4-0 win for Carterton.

Long Crendon v Caversham United
After a weekend of differing FA Cup results, Long Crendon winning and Caversham going out, these two come face to face in the league. Last season, in the Thames Valley League, The Goats did the double over Crendon. A 3-1 win at Mapeldurham in October was the precursor to 2-1 win for Caversham at Chearsley Road. Holly Swan and Eleanor Dorey notched for The Goats whilst Long Crendon's scorer was Nicoe Jacobs.

Penn & Tylers Green v Kidlington
What a game this promises to be! Kidlington top and Penn third in the league, both sides defending unbeaten records in all competitions. Both sides know where the goal is and are more than capable of causing problems for the opposing defences, who will need to be on top form.
French Meadow School, Elm Road, Penn HP10 8LG
Woodley United v Milton United
Fourth and second respectively, these two sides have played just one league game each so far. Both won their opening games, Milton 4-1 at home to Long Crendon and Woodley by a goal to nil at Eversley & California. Milton's Charlotte Comley currently leads the way in the race for the Golden Boot with four goals in three games. Woodley have their own sharpshooter in May Hamblin who has two in two.
