Southampton FC Women gained safe passage to the SSE Women's FA Cup second round with victory over Poole Town Ladies on Sunday afternoon.

A 3-0 success, Georgie Freeland opened the scoring on the stroke of half time, latching onto a cross from Aliss Wheeler, before second half strikes from Ella Pusey and Shannon Sievwright made the win secure.

Striker Pusey, scorer of the second and creator of the third, netted the pick of the bunch, using her pace to round Poole keeper Sam Crippes and roll into an empty net 20 minutes from time.

Sievwright completed the scoring with an emphatic strike in the 75th minute, indicative of Saints' dominance, having been teed up neatly by Pusey, and sets up a second round meeting with MK Dons in early December.

Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side remain unbeaten in all competitions this term, ahead of next weekend's Hampshire Cup meeting with Basingstoke.
