Investec Womens O35’s Trophy

Investec Women’s O35’s Trophy Harleston Magpies 4 Bury 1

Having beaten Norwich Dragons in the previous round Magpies O35s faced Bury at home for a place in the National quarter finals. Magpies had the better of the opening exchanges but the Bury defence stood firm until a slick passing move was finished off by Angie Wheelhouse beating the advancing goal keeper on 23 minutes. Anouska Stott added the second 3 minutes later to give Magpies a 2 goal margin at the break.

Bury came out strongly at the start of the second half and deservedly scored with a good strike from Sharon Holton. The game was then finely balanced but Magpies gradually gained control of the midfield. Kath Johnson added a third from a penalty corner lob and Charlie Harrison completed the scoring.

The quarter final match will be on February 26th

Squad:- Karen Fletcher (GK) Rachel Goodson, Kath Johnson, Plum Sweet, Laura Betts, Debbie Francis, Louisa Greenacre, Charlie Harrison, Teresa Griffin, Angie Wheelhouse, Lucy Field, Anouska Stott, Jose Tibbenham.
