Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are at home this Saturday against Sevenoaks starting at 1.30pm.
Last week Magpies beat Ipswich 2-0 away in a game they were expected to win and eventually picked up all three points with a work man like performance. Sevenoaks had a more difficult fixture and lost 3-0 at home to second place Wimbledon. Magpies will have that difficult task the following week. At the moment the League table sees Sevenoaks in third place, Cambridge City in fourth place and Magpies in fifth place, all on the same number of points. With home advantage Magpies have a great opportunity to climb the table as long as they can produce a good enough performance.
Sevenoaks have a much superior goal difference to Magpies, but they have not had the kind of season they would initially have expected.
Sixth place and above will see Magpies in Division 1 North or Division 1 South next season in the new National League structure. That position is not yet assured but Magpies have a 9 point gap over the 7th placed team with four games to go. It would be nice to wrap it up this weekend.
This week sees the return of Lara Taylor and Kristine Ayling to the squad.
Lauren Barber (capt), Lizzie Clymer, Jade Daly, Katrina Sitch, Louisa Greenacre, Katherine Ridley, Debbie Francis, Frances Burrell, Charlotte Harrison, Lauren Rowe, Emma Lee-Smith, Lottie Summers, Georgie Cantrell, Rose Winter, Lara Taylor, Kristine Ayling and Annie Nunn
