Darlington RA were another team to knock out a side from a higher level, the North East League high fliers coming away from Scunthorpe Utd with a 2-1 victory with goals from Natalie Langham and Nicola Gray. Their reward is another tough trip, to Middlesbrough who came through a potentially tricky tie away to West Auckland Town as Sally Mallen and Steph Turnbull gave them a 2-0 win.
Bradford City came away from Stockport County with a 1-0 victory in one of the ties of the round. Becky Griggs was the hero for Bradford as she netted the only goal of the game from an 89th minute penalty, which earns her side a trip to either Leeds City Vixens or Crewe Alexandra.

TNS & Shrewsbury Town ended the Cup run of Bracknell Town with a 5-0 victory and they will face fellow Midland Combination opponents in the shape of Coventry City, who won the local derby tie 3-2 against Copsewood Coventry. Ria Baker had given Copsewood an early lead with a cross-cum-shot and an own goal levelled the scores in first half injury time.
