Women's football: Leicester City Ladies go through
Leicester City Ladies progressed to the first round proper of the Women's FA Cup by beating West Midlands side FC Reedswood 4-3.
A much-changed and youthful looking City side went a goal down but Erica Kilby levelled before half-time.
Reedswood regained the lead before Shannon Edwards made it 2-2.
Leicester started to take control with further goals from Kayleigh Hillier and Tori Allen. Reedswood did not give up and managed a third goal before the full-time whistle.

Leicester meet Loughborough Foxes at Aylestone Park FC on Sunday (2.0).
Lutterworth Athletic also progressed with a well-deserved 4-1 win over Mansfield Town.
Both teams started strongly but it was Athletic who went ahead when Helen Busby collided with the Mansfield keeper and Oly Stevens fired in.
Mansfield equalised but Caz Toone put Athletic back in front.
Stevens scored a decisive third goal and Neely Simons completed the scoring.
Battling Ellistown were unable to pull off a shock against Stoke City, who play at a level higher, and were beaten 4-0.
Stoke went ahead after 20 minutes with a well-worked goal that gave keeper Becky Robinson no chance.
Kristy Pearman put in some dangerous corners but nothing dropped kindly for Ellistown, while Jody Scott and Sally Walton had long-range efforts well saved.
It was Stoke who were on top, however, and they were 3-0 ahead at half-time.
Ellistown plugged away in the second period and a Kelly Greene free-kick cause mayhem in the Stoke box.
At the other end, Robinson continued to pull off save after save but was unable to prevent Stoke scoring a fourth goal in the 80th minute.
Syston Town produced a below-par performance to draw 1-1 at Asfordby Amateurs in the Leicestershire Senior League.
Syston just edged the first half and chances fell to Jo Keatley and Rachel Burton. Their defence of Sophie Pickering, Olivia Taylor, Charlotte Rafferty and Elyse Glyn-Smith stood firm while goalkeeper Lucy Moore performed well.
Asfordby took the lead midway through the second half but Syston hit back with a Burton after Keatley had been fouled.
