A busy programme in the FA Women’s National League includes the quarter-finals of the Cup and Plate competitions.

League Cup ties see Brighouse again host Huddersfield after edging them 1-0 less than a fortnight ago, Fylde face Division 1 North leaders Liverpool Feds, FA Cup giantkillers Southampton FC play top of Division 1 South East side Hashtag United and Crawley Wasps welcome Oxford United whom they beat 1-0 in October.

Alnwick Town have a big test against Nottingham Forest in the League Plate, Portsmouth play lower ranked Wimbledon, Division 1 South West leaders Cheltenham entertain Exeter City, while Leafield Athletic prepared for the visit of Sporting Khalsa with a ten-goal midweek victory.

Wolves will go top of the Northern Premier should they return with three points from a winless Hull City.

After a very respectable FA Cup result against Manchester United, Bridgwater go head-to-head with Gillingham in a clash of fifth versus fourth in the Southern Premier, while leaders Ipswich travel to play MK Dons at the changed venue of Wootton Blue Cross FC.

A local derby in Division 1 North has Durham Cestria in fourth hosting second-placed Newcastle United.
