Harleston Magpies Ladies Preview


Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are away this Saturday at St Albans starting at 1.00pm.

Magpies were unable to keep their 100% record going last week against Cambridge City after conceding an early goal in the first half. A great fight back in the second half saw Maria Andrews equalise which was the least they deserved and they had the chances to win in the second half.

Even so Magpies have made a very good start to the season with two wins and a draw and are currently in second place behind a very strong looking Sevenoaks side.

St Albans have made a slow start to the season having lost their opening game 5-0 away at Sevenoaks, followed by a 2-2 draw at home against Southgate. Last week they lost 2-1 away at Hampstead and Westminster, which leaves them in 8th position with one point.

St Albans have had a much tougher start to the season than Magpies, but Magpies have the confidence and the momentum going into this match based on some good results. This week sees Charlotte Peet return in goal for Magpies after being unavailable last week. Thanks goes to Jade Daly for standing in last week.

Abby Gooderham is unavailable this week because of a school fixture but otherwise Magpies have much the same squad they have had all season.

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