Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are at home this SUNDAY against League leaders Cambridge City starting at 1.30pm.
Cambridge City have beaten Southgate at home 5-0, Ipswich at home 3-0 and Bedford away 3-0. They have maximum points with a number of heavy weight teams close behind them namely Sevenoaks, Hampstead and Wimbledon.
Magpies have also had a very positive start to the season beating Bedford 3-0 away in their opening game. Beating Southgate away last week 3-1 with goals from Lauren Rowe and Lara Taylor 2. In between those two games Magpies had a fantastic match at home against Wimbledon. Two down in the first half but level by half time at 2-2. Magpies stunned Wimbledon by going 3-2 up. Magpies could not quite hang on as Wimbledon scored the winner with four minutes to go.
However Magpies will have learnt that they have the capability to take on the top teams in this League and they will need that same tenacity on Sunday if they are going to get a result against a confident Cambridge City side.
Last week at Southgate Magpies took an early lead after 3 minutes. It was hoped this would settle the team down, but instead Southgate looked the more threatening team in the first half. It was no surprise when Southgate equalised before half time. However two tremendous goals from Lara Taylor at the start of the second half effectively killed the game off.
Squad from: Lauren Barber (Capt), Megan Brown, Katrina Sitch, Louisa Greenacre, Debbie Francis, Fran Burrell, Lara Taylor, Lauren Rowe, Lucy Whiting, Emma Lee-Smith, Jess Bloom, Lizzie Clymer, Tor Findlay, Rose Winter, Lottie Summers, Charlotte Seaman and Annie Nunn.
