Premier League & County Cup
Top of the League - Ascot United : Top Scorer - Ellie White (12) Oxford City
Nicola Moore for The Baggies and Catherine Browning for Eastleigh made it one apiece at the break. However, an 80th minute Amber O'Reilly goal gave the Spitfires all three points, lifting them to third in the table. It was Badshot Lea's fourth league defeat on the bounce, leaving them a point above bottom side Warminster Town.
Warminster Town 0-5 Woodley United
Woodley scored twice in the first half and three times after the break to blow away Warminster, leaving them rock bottom. May Hamblin and Sarah Lawrence both scored twice with Michelle Quinn also getting in on the act. The result leaves Woodley level on points and goal difference with leaders Ascot United. Only goals scored separates the sides, although Ascot have played a game fewer.
Winchester City Flyers 0-4 Oxford City
The Hoops stunned their hosts with a first half salvo, scoring four times in fifteen minutes to put the game to bed before the break. Emily Harris opened the scoring on 19 minutes, adding her second two minutes later. Then top scorer Ellie White got in on the act, notching in the 24th and 35th minute. That's 12 in 7 games for White and 8 in the same number of games for Harris. Between them they have scored 20 of Oxford's 24 goals in all competitions.
Ascot United 1-4 Reading
Amelia Kimble scored in the first half for Ascot and the Yellawomen held their higher-ranked opponents to 1-1 at the break after Reading equalised with the last kick of the half. However, Reading showed their pedigree in the second half, scoring three more times without reply despite a great effort from the home side. Read the full match report on the Ascot United website.
Bournemouth Sports 10-0 Fleet Town
A convincing and numerically symmetrical performance from Sports who scored five in each half to see off their lower-ranked opposition. Hannah Bennett hit a first half hat-trick after Liane Folkenstern and Becky Miles had given Bournemouth a two goal lead within five minutes. Millie Shaw, Miles again, Rosie Eden, Emma Davis and finally, a second from Folkenstern, completed double figures for the home side.
Wycombe Wanderers 2-1 Penn & Tylers Green
Rebecca Stopforth gave Division One North side Penn the lead against their Premier League opposition. The Chairgirls fought back with an Honor Cantrell goal from an Armstrong cross. Then, with almost the last kick of the game, Maddie Armstrong stabbed home from a free-kick to won it for Wanderers.

Top of the League - Kidlington : Top Scorer - Courtney Sumner, Katie West (8) Kidlington, Chesham Utd Development
Emma Nolan gave Chesham a first half lead which was then added to by yet another double strike from Katie West, taking her total to eight for the season. Louise Pullen pulled a goal back with fifteen minutes remaining, but it was not enough to save the day for Ascot.
Eversley & California P-P Beaconsfield Town
Kidlington 3-1 Abingdon United Development
These two sides served up a superb advert for the league. Courtney Sumner pounced twice to give the Greens a two goal advantage. However, Iva Georgievska immediately got a goal back for Abingdon who then proceeded to dominate before Abi Haynes hit them with a third just before half-time. Kidlington then survived a lot of United pressure to hang on for the points. You can read the full match blog on the Base of the Pyramid site (Sunday Best). Photographer Steve Surman (link to follow) was also present to capture the action.
Long Crendon 0-6 (0-1) Milton Keynes Dons SET
Dons narrowly led through an Annaliese Jacovides goal at the break. However, they made the divisional difference pay in the second period with five more goals from Zoe Creaney, Lily Dolling, Lucy Wood and two unfortunate own goals.
Milton United Ladies P-P Caversham United
Division One South - League & County Cup
Top of the League - AFC Stoneham : Top Scorer - Chloe Melton (14) AFC Stoneham
Eilidh Currie and Charmaine True put Portchy two up at the break. Quickly afterwards this became five as True and Currie both hit their second goals with Elinor Williams joining in. Carla Hobbs pulled a goal back for Rangers before Williams again and Sara Hinton completed the scoring. Read the match report on the Portchester web site and check out some great photos from Lindsey Hyde Photography.
Bournemouth Sports Reserves P-P Selsey Development
Havant & Waterlooville 2-3 AFC Stoneham
Stoneham jumped to the top of the table by edging past former leaders Havant & Waterlooville in a five goal thriller. Susani Lucas gave The Purps a narrow lead at the break. Chloe Dark equalised for the Hawks just after the hour and then, three minutes later, the turnaround looked complete when Emma-Jane May made it 2-1. However, despite keeping league top scorer Chloe Melton quiet, Havant could not prevent Leah Webster and then Lucas, with her second, giving all three points to Stoneham. Check out the excellent action shots from Dave Haines Photos.

Woking 2-0 Epsom & Ewell

Fixtures 22nd October 2023, 2pm ko unless stated
AFC Portchester v Pucklechurch Sports
Portchy continued their 100% start to the season with a 7-1 defeat of Abbey Rangers the weekend. That made it five league games a two FA Cup matches with 25 scored and only 5 conceded, so far this season. That's the scale of the task facing South West Region Premier side Pucklechurch. They currently sit 4th in their league, only two points off top place with a game in hand. They are also on an excellent run of form, unbeaten since the opening day of the season, a run of four wins and a draw. Tickets for this game can be purchased here
The OnSite Group Stadium, Portchester, PO16 9DP
Dartford v Wycombe Wanderers
The Chairgirls face a tough test as they make the journey around the M25 and not just with the traffic. Dartford are sitting pretty on top of their league, four points clear with a game in hand over second placed Fulham. The Darts had a 100% record in league and cup this season, until they drew 1-1 with Ebbsfleet on Tuesday evening. They progressed to this round with a 2-0 win over fellow London & South East side Ashford United. Wycombe are on a run of four wins including a superb 1-0 win at Ascot United to progress this far in the cup.
Princes Park Grassbanks, Dartford, DA1 1RT
Ebbsfleet United v Oxford City
United slipped to fourth in the London & South East Premier at the weekend after their game was postponed. They jumped back up to third on Tuesday with a draw against leaders Dartford. They are nine points adrift of Dartford but do have a couple of games in hand. They have also only lost once this season, a 4-2 reversal at Fulham. Oxford are themselves on a great run of three straight wins and four without defeat. They put nine past Slough in the last round, six of which were scored by Ellie White, who now has 12 for the season.
Stonebridge Road, Gravesend, DA11 9GN
Ilminster Town v Winchester City Flyers
Flyers make the trip to Somerset to take on an Ilminster side who are flying this season. Top of the South West Region Western Division, they have a 100% record in all competitions and have not conceded in their last three games. Flyers had themselves been on a good run of form until they fell foul of Oxford City's high-scoring forwards last weekend, losing 4-0. They progressed to this stage with a resounding 6-2 win at Shanklin in the last round.
Archie Gooch Pavilion, Ilminster, TA19 9FE
Keynsham Town v Bournemouth Sports
Sports, who have yet to be beaten in any competition this season, face a tough test to that record as they take a trip West to face National League Division 1 South-West opposition in Keynsham Town. Currently fourth in the table, Keynsham have only lost once at home and have scored twenty goals in four games there. Bournemouth progressed to this stage with an 8-0 win at Warminster Town in the previous round.
The AJN Stadium, Keynsham, BS31 2BE
Royal Wootton Bassett Town v AFC Stoneham
Division One South leaders AFC Stoneham take a little break from the league to take on South West Region Eastern Division side Royal Wootton Bassett Town, who currently sit third in their league. The Purps beat Rushmoor 8-0 to get here and had a superb 3-2 win at Havant & Waterlooville at the weekend. Wootton Bassett had a Sunday off after their game with Weymouth was postponed.
Gerard Buxton Sports Ground, Royal Woottton Bassett, SN4 8DS
Woodley United v Aylesford
Like Oxford City and Wycombe, Woodley face up to a London & South East Premier League side. Aylesford haven't started all that well and currently sit in 10th spot, one place above the drop zone. However they did see off Croydon 5-1 in the previous round. Woodley have lost just once since their return to the premier League and saw off Buckingham United by an 8-0 score line in the previous round.
UofR Bulmershe Pavilion, Woodlands Avenue, RG5 3HE
Badshot Lea v Warminster Town
A meeting between the bottom two in the Premier League with just one win between the two of them so far. Interestingly, all of The Baggies points have come at home and all of Warminster's have come on the road. The Baggies will be desperate to break a streak of five consecutive defeats. Warminster have lost their last three in all competitions after a brief upturn in September where they drew two games on the bounce.
Operatix Community Ground, Wrecclesham GU10 4PF
Eastleigh v Ascot United
It's been something of a rollercoaster in the league for Eastleigh so far. Two wins were followed by two defeats and then another win last time out. That result lifted them to within a point of Ascot having played a game more than the leaders. United's draw with Bournemouth Sports two weeks ago was the first time they had dropped points in the league this season. This fixture last season ended in a 1-0 win for Eastleigh courtesy of a first-half Catherine Browning strike.

Division One North
Ascot United Reserves v Wycombe Wanderers u23
With no game last weekend, Wanderers lost top spot to Kidlington but do have a game in hand on the Greens. They take a run of four consecutive victories into this game, a run that has seen them score 20 times and only concede 4. Ascot have not won since their 3-1 defeat of Kidlington back in September. They've lost their last two by a 3-1 score line after being a goal down at the break on both occasions.
Ascot United Racecourse Ground, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7LJ
Beaconsfield Town v Abingdon United Development
The Rams didn't play at the weekend after their game with Eversley & California was postponed. United lost 3-1 at Kidlington in a highly entertaining game at Exeter Park. There have been twenty-three goals scored in Beaconsfield's three home games so far. Although she didn't get on the scoreboard at the weekend, United's Mimi Hodges is still in the top 5 scorers, with seven goals in five games.
Holloways Park, Windsor Road, Beaconsfield HP9 2SE
Caversham United v Chesham United Development
The Goats will be hoping that their injury nightmare has eased enough for them to get this game on. They've yet to take a point this season after four straight league defeats in which they have conceded far too many goals. Chesham, meanwhile, are on something of a roll. They've won their last three matches and scored 11 goals in the process. Their one concern may be that they have also conceded six. Still, if you score more than the opposition, you win.
Mapledurham Recreation Ground, Reading RG4 7LD
Long Crendon v Kidlington
The battle of the greens. Long Crendon will want to put their cup exit and first league defeat of the season behind them as they look to climb back up the table. Kidlington went top at the weekend but have played more than anyone else, so continuing their run is of great importance. The sides only met once last season after this fixture was awarded as a home walkover to Crendon. The game at Exeter Park earlier in the season ended 0-0.
Long Crendon Recreation Ground, Long Crendon HP18 9BS
Milton United v Penn & Tylers Green
Penn take their 100% record to The Heights to face a Milton side who will be fresh after not playing since October 1st. Last season these teams produced two absolute belters that both ended all square. 2-2 in this fixture, where Penn took the lead twice only to be pegged back on both occasions. The return fixture at Penn swung backwards and forwards with both sides leading at some point during the game.
Milton Heights, Abingdon OX14 4XB
Division One South
Abbey Rangers v Rushmoor
Two sides looking for a result to restart their respective seasons after both lost their last league outing. Abbey's 7-1 defeat to Portchester came on the back of their first win, a 2-1 defeat of Fleet Town. Rushmoor lots their last league match 3-0 at home to Havant & Waterloovile, after also defeating Fleet the week before. Last season in this fixture, Rangers were triumphant. A 2-1 victory was secured with two Lauren Timbrell goals trumping Rushmoor's Mary Kinsella effort.
Addlestone Moor, Addlestone, Surrey KT15 2QH
Fleet Town v Bournemouth Sports Reserves
When Sport slost 5-0 to AFC Stoneham last time out, it was therir first reversal since the opening day of the season. After their game with Selsey Dev. was postponed at the wekeend, they'll be looking to get back on track against second from bottom Fleet this Sunday. Fleet are still without a piint since the opening day draw at home to Eastleigh Reserves. They lost heavily to Bournemouth's first team at the wekeend but their last two league defeats have only been by a single goal.
Fleet Town, Crookham Road, Fleet GU51 5FA
Woking v Havant & Waterlooville
The Cards go into this one on the back of two victories, 7-0 at Selsey Dev. in their last league outing and a very good 2-0 defeat of Epsom & Ewell in the FA Cup last Sunday. The Hawks were knocked off the top after their first defeat of the season saw them go down 3-2 at home to AFC Stoneham, who took over at the top. Woking are yet to take a point at home, although they've only played one. Havant are yet to taste defeat on the road.
