Harleston Magpies U10 Girls report


Harleston Magpies U10 Girls finished as runners up in the Norfolk Club Finals behind the winners Norwich City. Magpies started off by beating Dereham 2-0 (Lottie Summers, Georgina Warren) and then also beat Pelicans 2-0 (Lottie Summers 2). The crunch game against Norwich City saw a terrific end to end match but Magpies had their chances to score and in one spell must have had four successive shots but the Norwich goalkeeper saved well. Norwich broke away immediately to score the decisive goal.
In the second round of matches Magpies beat Dereham 3-0 (Lottie Summers 2, Anna Kilbourn) and Pelicans 1-0 (Martha Lawrence). The return match against Norwich City was an excellent game in which both sides had chances to win but in the end they had to settle for a -0 draw.
This was only the second time these players have played together this season as Under 10s, having previously played the U11/U13 format, so they did well and came very close to winning. All the players improved throughout the Tournament.

SQUAD: Georgina Warren (Capt), Lucy Westmacott (GK), Megan Conway, Martha Lawrence, Matilda Warde-Aldam, Rose Winter, Lottie Summers, Lottie Fairs and Anna Kilbourn
