Magpies first Team Preview 9 October

Magpies To Visit League Leaders

Magpies continued their run of fine form returning to Weybread and giving their supporters a good all round performance in beating Oxted 5-1.Although chances went begging early in the game Magpies won this game convincingly, no stars just a fit squad eager to work for each other. Magpies pace and commitment up front ,together with a defence that has the best record in the league are the trademarks of this side .Competition for places is good with last season’s top goal scorer Any Hipwell ,vice captain Pete Bale and Jamie Legg all missing from this win.

This Saturday Magpies visit the league’s top side Indian Gymkhana who have won all three games. Whilst too early to read much into the table, Magpies who find themselves in second position should not be overawed by the game. The Indians whose brand of hockey is so different to any other side in the division have achieved their wins against three sides sitting at the bottom of the table.

Andy Hipwell returns to the squad at the expense of stand by keeper Marc Lloyd.
