Harleston Magpies Ladies 1 preview

HARLESTON MAGPIES LADIES PLAY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BIRMINGHAM

PRE SEASON TOURNAMENT THIS WEEKEND ON SAT/SUN AUG 27/28

Harleston Magpies Ladies will start the pre season at the University of Birmingham Tournament this weekend in preparation for the start of another season in the East Conference National League. They are indebted to the generosity and support of Musker McIntyre Estate Agents who will be sponsoring the team again this season.

Magpies will be travelling to Birmingham with a large squad made up of experienced National League players as well as a number of young players who will be given the opportunity to show what they can do at this level and who will benefit from the experience.

This season the team will be led by Rob Sorrell as Coach, although he will already know most of the players as he assisted with the coaching last season. Lucy Belsey will continue as Captain with Lauren Barber stepping up to be Vice Captain.
