Top of the Table - Ascot United : Top Scorer - Ellie White (19), Oxford City
Oxford City 3-0 Woodley United
The Hoops leapfrogged their opponents into third spot with a solid performance on Sunday. United travelled with a depleted squad and lost midfielder Bonnie Messitt after half an hour. However, nothing can be taken away from Oxford's performance. Two more goals from Ellie White and one from Georgia Hodgetts gave the home side the points. BotP was at the Raw Charging Stadium to record the events in a match blog (Fully Charged Hoops). Photographer Andy Wicks was also there to capture the action for us.

Caversham United 0-8 Long Crendon
Long Crendon too over from Kidlington at the top of Division One North with a crushing 8-0 win at Caversham. The Greens now lead the other Greens on goal difference with the sides level on games. Brooke Burns, Tara Woodward and Sarah Harrison each scored twice. Megan Brockwell and Nicole Jacobs also chimed in with a goal apiece. The Goats will be relishing the prospect of a few weeks off to recharge, regroup and look to get some points on the board in 2024.

Fleet Town P-P Havant & Waterlooville
Woking 0-0 Bournemouth Sports Reserves
Honours even at Eastwood Leisure Centre as neither Woking nor Sports could break the deadlock in a tight game. This was the second occasion inside a month that these teams could not be separated. Whilst the result leaves Woking in fifth spot, the point for Bournemouth takes them above Havant & Waterlooville into third. Read the match report on the Woking web site.
Cup Competition Results
AFC Stoneham 5-2 Chesham United Development
Chesham gave Division One South leaders are real battle before bowing out of the League Cup. Twice the Division One North newbies took the lead in the first half, first through Katie West and then again through Mathilde Beloou. League top scorer Chloe Melton and Susani Lucas replied for Stoneham. In the second half Chesham held the Purps out for another 33 minutes before a late flurry from the hosts. Both Melton and Lucas notched their second goals, with Mia Delaney getting the other goal.
Eversley & California P-P Eastleigh
Milton United 0-6 Wycombe Wanderers
After two consecutive defeats, Wycombe got back to winning ways in some style, putting six past Division One North side Milton United. However, the score line doesn't fully reflect the fight provided by the lower ranked side. Two from Katie Riddington had the Chairgirls in front at the break but the score then remained at 2-0 until Wycombe hit four goals in the final 20 minutes to wrap it up. Molly Carter completed a second half hat-trick and Katie Riddington was also on the mark again to grab a hat-trick for herself.

AFC Portchester v Portsmouth u23
Still with a 100% record in the league, Portchester go into the Christmas break with a midweek Combined Counties Cup match against local rivals Portsmouth's development team. Portsmouth got through to this round on a bye. Portchester were awarded a home win in their tie with Alton. The winners will face wither Margate or Deal Town in the Third Round.

Oxford City v Ascot United
This game has the potential to be a Christmas cracker. Ascot still lead the way in the premier League but are only 2 points clear of Bournemouth, who have a game in hand. There's then a gap of seven points to Woodley in third, with Oxford a further point adrift. City are still unbeaten at home and, after watching them on Sunday, I can see why. Ascot have a pretty solid defence but it will be severely tested by the Oxford strike force.

Swindon Supermarine v Warminster Town
Wiltshire Premier League Supermarine will be looking to pull off a County Cupset against a Warminster side two steps above them. There has been no shortage of goals scored by Swindon in the league, 44 in 9 games to be exact. Top scorer Amy Hards has 19 of those, a haul that has included three hat-tricks and two four goal blasts. Town, however, have been on a good run of form, winning three of their last four league games, including ending Ascot United's unbeaten start to the season.

Long Crendon v Beaconsfield Town
Long Crendon will be looking to maintain their place at the top after going above Kidlington on goal difference following an8-0 win at Caversham. However, Beaconsfield also won 8-90 at Caversham in their last game, so they will still be on a high from their biggest win of the season. Recent history is on the side of the Greens. The sides have met twice already this season, once in the league and once in the County Cup. Long Crendon have been victorious in both, by scores of 4-0 and 3-1.

Milton United v Penn & Tylers Green
Last season these two produced two superbly entertaining draws on their way to a second and third place finish respectively. Penn have the upper hand this season, currently third but with three games in hand that could potentially put them six points clear. Milton have only played six league games so far and could find themselves back in the running if they put a sequence of wins together.

Wycombe Wanderers u23 v Kidlington
Having lost top spot last weekend, Kidlington will be keen to find a result to keep the pressure on Long Crendon. A trip to Wycombe would probably not be top of their wish list. Wanderers have a 100% home record this season and have scored twelve goals in their three games. Kidlington will be looking to return to the form that saw them win five league games on the bounce before Penn put an end to their run a month ago.

Southampton v AFC Stoneham
Stoneham, still top of Division One South and fresh from a County Cup win, make the short journey to Test Park to take on National League Division One South-West side Southampton. Whilst the Purps will have their work cut out against a higher-ranked opposition, they can take some comfort in the knowledge that the Sirens are yet to win at home in the league, although they have been successful in cup games.
