Harleston Magpies Ladies Preview


Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are away this Saturday against Hampstead and Westminster HC starting at 1.30 pm.

Last week after a disappointing first half against Southgate Maria Andrews scored a crucial goal to level the score at 1-1 just before half time. Despite going 2-1 down early in the second half Magpies finished much the stronger of the two teams to run out 5-3 winners to record another impressive win, although they will be disappointed to have conceded three goals. This will be the third time Magpies have scored five goals in a match this season and they are currently 3rd in the League.

Hampstead & Westminster are 4th in the League one place and one point behind Magpies. They have lost 2-1 at home to Wimbledon, drawn 0-0 away at Chelmsford, beaten St Albans 2-1 at home, beaten Southgate away 5-2 and last week they beat Northampton 7-3 away.

This will probably be Magpies toughest test to date and last season Magpies lost 1-0 to the London team in the final minute.

At the moment the League is settling down with Sevenoaks at the top looking very impressive with Wimbledon in second place. Those will be two challenging matches for Magpies to play in the coming weeks.
