WOODLEY United Ladies reached the Berks & Bucks Women’s Senior Cup semi final with a 3-0 home win against Wycombe Wanderers.

Rosie Page-Smith threatened first for Woodley before Wycombe’s Kitty James shot straight at Nicole Haines.

But the hosts broke the deadlock on 14 minutes when Page-Smith beat Wycombe keeper Amy Batkin from 18 yards from a May Hamblin assist.

Woodley survived a scare in the 28th minute when Wycombe saw a goal disallowed for offside. But they responded with Mollie Haines and Page-Smith both testing Batkin.

However, Woodley doubled their lead a minute before half time when Page-Smith’s initial shot was parried to Natasha Master to calmly slot home.

The hosts were forced to make a change and replace Ellen Surtees with Faye Ward, but it did little to alter the flow of the game.

In fact, Woodley added a third goal on the hour when player-of-the-match Hamblin slotted into an empty net after Page Smith’s initial effort had been saved.

Wycombe rallied as Abie Canvin sent a free-kick narrowly wide before James also missed the target. But Woodley preserved their clean sheet thanks to Haines’ save to deny Canvin a consolation.

Woodley join holders Chesham United and FA Women’s Premier League sides Maidenhead United and MK Dons in the semi final draw.

Chesham reached the last four with a 5-0 win against Barton Rovers Ladies, ending their unbeaten run in the process.

The defeat was harsh on Rovers after Georgina Smithers pulled off a string of quality saves.

In the Thames Valley Counties Women’s League, Barton Royals ended a run of eight defeats with victory at Stanford Ladies thanks to a second-half hat-trick from Katy Cresswell and a Jade Deneka-Littleboy goal.

Newbury Ladies

NEWBURY Ladies recorded back-to-back wins in Southern Region Women’s League Premier Division for the first time since September with a 1-0 victory against MK City Ladies on Sunday thanks to an 80th minute own goal.

Newbury Ladies Development lost 4-0 at MK City Ladies Reserves in round two of the Berks & Bucks County Cup.

Tilehurst Panthers

A LYDIA Vettese brace and a Leila Lister goal saw Tilehurst Panthers U15 Stripes recover from a goal down to beat Mole Valley 4-1 on Sunday.

Player of the match were shared by Mia Smith, who was outstanding in goal, and Charlie Kirk for her overall work rate.

This win moves Panthers up to second in the table.
