Guiseley Vixens demolished Nettleham 7-1 in the FA Cup Fourth-round Qualifying.

Olivia Da Costa’s early double got the Vixens up and running before Liv Thackeray’s goal put them 3-1 up on half-time, after Holly Newham scored for Nettleham. Second-half goals from Liz White, Ellie Hall, Sarah Danby and Natalie Brace put the game beyond any doubt, sending the Vixens cruising into the first round proper.

Brighouse are also into the next round after Jodie Redgrave’s hat-trick coupled with Emma Dobson and Danni Brown’s goals eased them past fellow Divison One team Blackpool Wren Rovers.

Leeds’ FA Cup journey is over, however, after a 6-0 battering against Division One Yorkshire rivals Hull City sent them crashing out of the competition.

Tingley Athletics’ 3-2 loss to Silsden Firsts put Leeds Medics and Dentists three points clear at the top of the Premier Division after they beat Bradford Park Avenue 7-1. Natalie Bell scored for Avenue, who were once again a player short, but hat-tricks from Becky Preston and Kellyn Arnold and a goal from Helen Molloy meant Avenue suffered another 7-1 loss.

Elsewhere, Hepworth United beat Brayton Belles 4-2 while Battyeford Firsts battled out a 3-2 win over relegation rivals Ossett Town Firsts .

Yorkshire Amateur remain top of the First Division despite dropping points against a spirited Wetherby Athletic side. Amateur broke the deadlock early on through Laura Burton and hit the crossbar with a Nadine Bates’ free kick. However, a careless second-half own goal brought Wetherby level, meaning Amateur had to settle for a dissapointing draw.

This meant Tingley Athletic drew closer to Avenue by demolishing Bradford city ‘A’ 6-1, while a Faith Forde Hattrick and a Chloe Akers goal helped Brighouse Town Development defeat Republica Internationale 4-1, with Jane Turner scoring for Republica.

Skipton Town’s postponed match against Silsden Development meant Leeds City replaced them at the top of the Second Division after a 4-1 win over Boroughbridge.

Dewsbury and Clifton Rangers also managed to keep up ground on the leaders with Dewsbury edging Crossley 3-2, while Clifton also gained a narrow win against Farsley Celtic Development, beating them 2-1.

Ripon City Panthers’ 9-2 over West Leeds win put the joint of the Third Division with Middleton, while Ilkley Town’s promotion hopes were dealt a blow after their 1-1 with bottom side Kirkstall Crusaders, allowing Lower Hopton to leapfrog Ilkley into third through their 2-0 win over Farsley Celtic ‘A’.
