This weekend saw action aplenty in both the FA Vase and the Vitality Women’s FA Cup and with both competitions now into the Second Qualifying Round here is how both competitions shape up for our sides.

Starting in the FA Vase, Longlevens claimed a 3-2 win over Fairford Town in our featured game of the weekend.

In the Vitality Women’s FA Cup there was plenty of drama in the three fixtures involving our Gloucestershire County Women’s Football League sides.

Gloucester City Women set up a Second Qualifying Round tie with Ilminster Town Ladies with a 3-2 win over Weston-Super-Mare at Meadow Park.

A double from Kate Ambrey along with a strike from Kelsey Harris saw their side win in their Women’s FA Cup debut.

Pucklechurch Sports Ladies advanced into the next round on penalites after a 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers Women.

Nerys Akers stepped up to convert the winning spotkick to see her side set up a trip to Sherbonre Town Ladies in the Second Qualifying Round.

Then in the fixture between Almonsbury Ladies and Olveston United Ladies, with the visitors leading, the game was abandoned in stoppage time after a horrendous injury to an Almondsbury Ladies player.

It is believes the FA will likely need to make a decision with the tie and should Olveston get the result then they will be heading to Forest Green Rovers in the next round.

Longlevens Ladies enter the cup at the Second Qualifying Round stage and head to Bristol Ladies Union.

Here is the Second Qualifying Round in full for our sides, ties take place on Sunday 3rd October (subject to change)
