Harleston Magpies Ladies Preview


Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are away this Saturday against Wimbledon HC starting at 2.00pm.

Last week Magpies had a stunning 1-0 home win against the League leaders Sevenoaks who previously had a 100% record of seven straight wins. A penalty flick well taken by Maria Andrews was the match winning goal to increase her tally for the season to eight goals. At the other end a penalty flick awarded to Sevenoaks with two minutes to go was saved by goalkeeper Tosh Peet with a great diving save. Despite that defeat Sevenoaks are still at the top but Wimbledon who are in second place are now level on points with Sevenoaks.

Clearly Wimbledon away will be another top clash and another challenge for Magpies who are in third place four points behind the top two teams and have only been beaten once this season. They will also come up against former Magpies player Cherry Seaborn.

There will be a few changes to the Magpies squad this weekend which sees Jess Howland and Hannah de Selincourt join the squad.

SQUAD: Lucy Belsey (Capt), Lauren Barber, Louisa Greenacre, Debbie Francis, Katherine Ridley, Lauren Mickleburgh, Charlotte Peet, Lizzie Clymer, Tor Findlay, Annie Nunn, Abby Gooderham, Maria Andrews, Lucy Whiting, Jess Howland and Hannah de Selincourt
