Southampton Women's FC won 2-0 in the Second Qualifying Round of the Women's FA Cup against Marine Academy Plymouth.

Áine McKeever slotted home in the 39th minute assisted by Tash Angel from an E-J May corner to break the deadlock.

Then despite a plethora of chances in front of goal Southampton had to wait until the 89th minute for their second, Jane Yeates bagging her seventh goal of the season.

Kellie Warren recorded a clean sheet as she moved from the centre of defence to between the sticks while Rose Kite was away on international duty.

The win against Marine Academy saw the Reds progress to the Third Qualifying Round while also overturning last years defeat to the same side at the same stage.
