Harleston Magpies Ladies Preview


Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are at home this Saturday against another newly promoted team Northampton Saints. The match starts at 2.00pm.

Magpies received a huge boost to their confidence when they beat West Herts away 5-2 last weekend. Apart from the three points the most pleasing aspect was the way the forwards played and the fact that they created many chances and took five of them. There were plenty of things for the squad to work on in terms of the shape of the team, but it is so much easier if you get off to a winning start.

Northampton Saints have been promoted to the National League from the Midlands League and it is not the first time that Northampton have played at this level. Last week they drew 1-1 with Chelmsford having gone 1-0 down they came back to equalise in 65th minute. The other results in the East Conference last week saw Southgate draw 3-3 with Cambridge City, Sevenoaks beat St Albans 5-0 and Wimbledon beat Hampstead and Westminster 2-1.

Annie Nunn joins the squad after injury.

SQUAD: Lucy Belsey (Capt), Lauren Barber, Louisa Greenacre, Bryony Lund, Debbie Francis, Katherine Ridley, Lauren Mickleburgh, Anna Tighe, Charlotte Peet (Lee-Smith), Kara Kilbourn, Lizzie Clymer, Tor Findlay, Charlotte Harrison, Lucy Whiting, Annie Nunn and Maria Andrews
