The South Londoners trailed 4-0 by the break.

Millwall keeper Millie Carter pulled off a number of saves to keep the scoreline down. Lois Smith also produced a goal-line clearance.

The Lionesses are back in Eastern Region Women’s Football League Division One South action on Sunday as they host Hutton FC.

Hamlet will take on Lancing on October 4 in the next round.

Palace goalkeeper Chloe Morgan has joined the Women in Football board.

Morgan, a lawyer, said: “I am a great admirer of the work of Women in Football in promoting, developing and championing women in the industry. I’m really thrilled to be joining the board and supporting the cause in any way I can.”
