Preview of Southampton-Swindon and Radcliffe Olympic v Sheff Wed, with interviews:

Quote
Fixty-six sides will take to the field (if the weather plays ball) on Sunday to compete for a place in the 2nd Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup and two sides that are getting into the mood of the 'romance of the cup' fancy their chances against opposition from higher divisions are Southampton WFC and Sheffield Wednesday.

An excellent report, as ever, from Connor at Middlesbrough v Hartlepool:

https://connorsfootball.wordpress.com/2016/12/04/middlesbrough-ladies-vs-hartlepool-united-women/

Quote
The attendance was 237 which is very impressive considering there was attendances such as the 28 at Birmingham and West Midlands Ladies vs Leicester City Women in the same round. Mind, there was apparently 562 at Crystal Palace Ladies vs Charlton Athletic Women. That could well be a WSL1 crowd!

Yeah, true... that's a little bit sad really.

But what a good match!

Minute's silences were held last weekend for the Chapecoense plane crash.



Round up:

http://www.thefa.com/news/2016/dec/04/sse-womens-fa-cup-first-round-wrap-041216

The only game to go to penalties was Stoke City v Liverpool Marshall Feds.

Stoke are in the Premier League Northern division, Feds are a level below in WPL Division 1 North, but in a knockout game these differences are only theoretical  :)  After a 1-1 draw AET, the away team ran out as 4-2 winners:

Quote
(from She Kicks interview with Feds captain Chantelle Thompson)
SK: Had you practised penalties?
CT: We all had a few tries at the end of training on the Wednesday night before but when it came to it, it was more about whoever was confident enough to step up and take one. Luckily, we had five volunteers. Although, Helen Griffiths’ ‘one-step’ pens always scare me!

(She Kicks)



Final scores:

Radcliffe Olympic 6 – 0 Sheffield Wednesday
Sheffield United 2 – 0 Leicester Development
Bradford City 0 – 1 Blackburn Rovers
Stoke City 1 – 1 Liverpool Feds (Feds win 4-2 on penalties)
Guiseley Vixens 0 – 1 Nottingham Forest
Birmingham/West Midlands Ladies 0 – 3 Leicester City WFC
Middlesbrough 1 – 0 Hartlepool United
West Bromwich Albion 4 – 1 Fylde
Huddersfield Town 0 – 1 Derby County
RACA Tynedale 0 – 3 Newcastle United
Brighouse Town 3 – 2 Peterborough Northern Star
Southampton Saints 1 – 7 Gillingham
Acle United 0 – 2 C&K Basildon
Tottenham Hotspur 1 – 0 Leyton Orient
Cambridge United 3 – 1 Queens Park Rangers
Crystal Palace 1 – 2 Charlton Athletic
Luton Town 1 – 4 Portsmouth
Norton & Stockton 1 – 6 Hull City LFC
Milton Keynes Dons 3 – 1 Hemel Hempstead Town
Norwich City 1 – 4 AFC Wimbledon Ladies
Regents Park Rangers 1 – 6 Keynsham Town
Wolverhampton 4 – 0 Solihull
Cardiff City LFC 6 – 0 Larkhall Athletic
Lewes 5 – 0 Brislington

And now the real match report:

Quote
Swindon are playing two divisions above Southampton but on the day, we did not see the difference between the two sides. The sides were evenly matched and it was no surprise in the end to see a cup upset with Southampton winning by two goals to nil.

Snazzy highlights from the home team... (SW = Southampton Women, ST = Swindon Town) ...

And here's the round 2 draw:

Wonderful to see a player from the first ever game I saw Southampton Saints vs Donny Belles in September 03 still going strong . Kirsty is on the right in the interview

Good stuff...

The winner of the player of the round is Fliss Gibbons, who scored four in Gillingham's 7-1 win against Southampton Saints:

Quote
Gills made it into the first round after a 7-0 win over Aylesford Ladies, and booked their place in the second – where they will face Tottenham Hotspur – after a Charlotte Gurr double and a volley from Jay Blackie added to Gibbons’ quadruple, helping them to seventh heaven once again.

Manager Jack Wheeler also talked about how much the cup run means to Gillingham:
