Two of the three teams to cause shocks in the last round go head to head, as Cambridge United host Southern [Region] League side Southampton Women, while Liverpool Feds have an attractive home tie against [WPL] Northern Division strugglers Newcastle United.

Sheffield United are the only other side from below the Premier League still involved, and and they have a testing trip to Derby County.

Player of the round: Jodie Redgrave of Brighouse Town LFC, who are struggling in Northern Division 1, but have secured a big tie in the next round:

Quote
Sunday January 8 saw her score four goals, including a last-minute winner, in a dramatic 4-3 defeat of Derbyshire-based Long Eaton, earning her the SSE Women’s FA Cup player of the second round award. ...

“My coach Rob Mitchell rang me to tell me about the award and I just couldn’t stop laughing, I thought it was a joke,” said the 24-year-old, whose club face Everton in round three on February 5. ... “We said straight after 'imagine if we got Everton', and then it happened! And it is at our place. I think anything can happen."


That game is in a couple of weeks:
