REPUBLIC OF IRELAND internationals Katie McCabe, Harriet Scott and Niamh Fahey all found the net today to help their clubs reach the fifth round of the Women’s FA Cup.

Katie McCabe scored the opening goal in Arsenal’s 2-0 victory over a West Ham United side who were runners-up in the competition last season.

Louise Quinn also started for the Gunners, who responded positively after their Women’s Super League title defence suffered a setback with a 4-1 defeat to Chelsea last weekend.

It was a disappointing outcome for West Ham, who had Courtney Brosnan and Leanne Kiernan in their starting line-up, while Ruesha Littlejohn came off the bench.

In Birmingham City’s 3-0 win away to Sheffield United, Harriet Scott had a hand in all three goals, scoring twice and also chipping in with an assist.

Niamh Fahey captained Liverpool and scored their second goal in an 8-1 hammering of Blackburn Rovers, which provided a welcome distraction from the Reds’ struggles in the WSL.
