SSE Women's FA Cup - Road to the Final
Keynsham Town produced a strong performance against local rivals Brislington and the resulting 8-1 win takes them into the Fourth Round in succession. Kerry Bartlett scored four times along with Justine Lorton, Keka, Katie Cook and an own goal. Keynsham will be at home again this week to Lewes, who notched up a fine 2-1 victory away to Huddersfield Town with goals from Rebecca Carter and Katie McIntyre.
Lewes FC Women (formerly Lewes Ladies) rose through the divisions under the guidance of manager Jacquie Agnew, who formed the club in the early 2000's. In 2011-12, they won the South East Combination League and Cup 'double' to reach the FA Women's Premier League.
Since then, after John Donoghue took over, Lewes have maintained a mid-table presence in the Southern Division, the highlight being last summer when they won their first major national trophy, beating Huddersfield Town 4-0 in the Final of the Premier League Plate.
This was followed by the news announced in the closed season that all players at Lewes, whether male or female, would be paid the same, becoming the first professional or semi professional club in this country to do so under their Equality FC campaign.
Lewes are on course for their best season to date in the Premier League, they currently lie in fourth place in the Southern Division, have reached the quarter finals of the Premier League Cup and a victory against Keynsham on Sunday would see them reach the Fifth Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup for the first time.
John Donoghue remains as manager of the first team, with Katie McIntyre as captain and Rebecca Carter is leading scorer, with ten to her name in all competitions.
