The March side took the short trip across Fenland to Wimblington to face higher-level Park and produced a superb display to seal a 5-2 victory and a place in the next round.

In what was a great advert for ladies football, the Hares took the lead through summer signing Barbour’s free-kick, before she doubled her side’s lead with a shot that crept through the ‘keeper’s fingers.

Barbour completed her treble soon after, but Park reduced the arrears with two quick-fire strikes.

Emma Searle added a fourth with a sweet strike from distance in the second half, before Barbour capped a superb afternoon for March with a lobbed fourth.

Park will hope for a response in their S-Tech Premiership clash with ICA Sports on October 16, while March take on Hungate Rovers Ladies in the Championship North on the same day.
