There was a rush of late goals as Arsenal drew against PSG, which was good enough to see the Gunners win the Toulouse International Ladies Cup. Beth Mead’s opener was cancelled out and although Kim Little restored the advantage on 90 minutes, Paris hit back to draw the match.

Manchester City beat Barcelona 2-0 with both goals in the last quarter of an hour. Melissa Lawley broke the deadlock, before Nikita Parris won a penalty which she herself converted.

Liverpool won 3-0 away to Durham, watched by a crowd of 357 at Penrith AFC, where Christie Murray scored the first and set up the other two. After converting a first-half penalty, she then delivered the corner kick which Jess Clarke headed home on 58 minutes, before exchanging passes with Laura Coombs for the latter to finish.

West Ham ran out 5-0 winners at Lewes with second-half efforts from Kate Longhurst (2), Vyan Sampson, Jane Ross  (penalty) and Leann Kiernan.

A Tash Knapman double saw Plymouth Argyle hold top flight Yeovil Town 2-2 away, while Blackburn Rovers beat Tier 2 Aston Villa 4-2.

Fylde almost came away from Championship side Sheffield United with the win, Megan Taylor and Livi Wild their scorers.

Two late goals from Rachel McLachlan and a Rachel Panting penalty saw Portsmouth snatch a 3-2 win at Brighton U-23s.

A crowd of nearly 300 braved the weather to watch Chichester City get a couple of goals back after the break in a 4-2 defeat by Spurs.

Coventry United posted a 5-0 result over Sheffield FC, Amy Wathan twice on target, one apiece for Amber Hughes, Maz Gauntlett and Helen Dermody.

North West League Merseyrail Bootle got the only goal of the game with a penalty against FAWNL side Crewe Alexandra.

Chloe Tape scoried her second in two days to see AFC Bournemouth beat Southampton WFC, the Cherries having shared eight goals with Swansea City 24 hours earlier.
