Harleston Magpies Ladies Preview


Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are away this Saturday against Cambridge City HC starting at 12.30pm. Last week Magpies drew 2-2 away against Southgate in a tough physical match. Magpies twice took the lead through Maria Andrews and Abby Gooderham, but each time Southgate equalised disappointingly in the 35th minute and 66th minute. From that situation Magpies would have hoped to see out time in each half.

Cambridge City had a busy weekend drawing 1-1 away at St Albans on the Saturday. On the Sunday they had a rearranged game against League leaders Wimbledon. Wimbledon are the current favourites to win the League, but Cambridge beat them 2-0 at home to record an impressive win. Surprisingly second placed Sevenoaks also slipped up on a rearranged League game when they lost 2-1 away to St Albans.

Magpies will be looking to get back to winning ways again this weekend, but the Wimbledon result shows that this is going to be another challenging match. At the moment Magpies remain in 3rd place with 30 points, just three points behind second placed Sevenoaks. Cambridge City are 5th with 21 points.

Lucy Whiting returns to the squad.

SQUAD: Lucy Belsey (Capt), Lauren Barber, Louisa Greenacre, Debbie Francis, Katherine Ridley, Rose Winter, Charlotte Peet, Lizzie Clymer, Tor Findlay, Lauren Mickleburgh, Abby Gooderham, Maria Andrews, Lauren Rowe, Charlotte Harrison, Lucy Whiting and Bryony Lund.
