Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are at home this Saturday against League leaders Hampstead and Westminster starting at 1.30pm.
This will be Magpies final League match before the Christmas break and the Indoor season. Hampstead and Westminster currently top the League and this will be Magpies toughest match of the season so far. Hampstead won the League last season but failed to successfully negotiate the Play Offs to secure a place in the Premier Division. They will be doubly determined to win the League again.
Magpies will be encouraged by the fact that Hampstead lost 3-2 to Cambridge City a few weeks ago so anything is possible. Magpies are currently 3rd in the League three points behind Hampstead and one point behind second placed Wimbledon. Sevenoaks and Cambridge City are very close behind us.
Last week Magpies drew 2-2 with Horsham away in a very hard match. After the worst possible start of conceding a goal in the first minute Magpies battled back through Emma Lee-Smith to equalise before half time and took the lead on 60 minutes thanks to Lauren Rowe. Unfortunately Horsham equalised with four minutes to go, but although it was disappointing to concede so late it was a fair result.
Injuries have been a feature in recent weeks for Magpies but after this game there will be a chance for every player to recover.
Squad: Lauren Barber (Capt), Megan Brown, Katrina Sitch, Debbie Francis, Fran Burrell, Lara Taylor, Lauren Rowe, Louisa Greenacre, Lizzie Clymer, Tor Findlay, Jess Bloom, Charlotte Harrison, Emma Lee-Smith, Katherine Ridley and Rose Winter.
