Magpies Ladies Weekend Preview


Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Musker McIntyre Estate Agents are away this Saturday against Southgate HC starting at 12.30pm. Last week Magpies beat Chelmsford at home 3-1 finishing with a strong second half performance, despite conceding an equaliser early in the second half. It was another good result but there were plenty of opportunities for Magpies to have scored more goals. The goals were scored by Tor Findlay, Maria Andrews and Lauren Barber. After last weekend Magpies remain in 3rd place with 29 points.

Southgate played two matches last weekend losing 4-1 to Hampstead and Westminster on Saturday but beating Northampton Saints 5-0 at home on the Sunday. Alexandra Fenwick scored from two penalty corners and this is a name Magpies will remember well as she scored a hatrick at Magpies back in October. Fortunately on that day Magpies scored 5 goals with two decisive late goals from Lucy Whiting. Southgate are presently in 8th place with 12 points.

Lucy Whiting is unavailable this week but Lauren Rowe returns to the squad.

SQUAD: Lucy Belsey (Capt), Lauren Barber, Louisa Greenacre, Debbie Francis, Katherine Ridley, Rose Winter, Charlotte Peet, Lizzie Clymer, Tor Findlay, Lauren Mickleburgh, Abby Gooderham, Maria Andrews, Lauren Rowe, Charlotte Harrison and Bryony Lund.
