The Women’s FA Cup 1st Round Proper features Fulham versus Portsmouth, Blackpool playing at Bloomfield Road and huge home ties for Mancunian Unity and West Didsbury & Chorlton.

Sixth-tier Mancunian Unity have won all their seven league games so far and have a massive match at home to Newcastle United, who are unbeaten in the FAWNL Northern Premier Division.

West Didsbury & Chorlton of the North West League Premier also have a big name draw with the visit of Leeds United.

Fulham face Portsmouth with the Cottagers second in their table but two levels below the FAWNL Southern Premier leaders.

Blackpool – struggling after promotion to the North West League Premier Division – have the boost of playing at Bloomfield Road for the visit of Spennymoor Town, who sit second in the North East League.

There is a double header at The Nest, where Dussindale & Hellesdon face Needham Market at 1pm, before Norwich City go up against Hashtag United at 3pm.

Sutton United have home advantage – but are one league below – visitors Maidenhead United, in an evening kick-off.

There are three ties in Cornwall; Helston hosting an in-form Exeter City, Plymouth Argyle playing Ilminster Town over the border at Torpoint and Sticker striving to get past Stoneham.
