Magpies Visit Title Contenders

Magpies in fine spirits following their win over Indian Gymnkhana, visit Old Loughtonians for what will be their toughest test of the season. The Essex side could only draw last weekend thus allowing Canterbury to take over the top spot. Magpies are likely to feel the backlash ,Old Loughtonians have only three games in which to regain the lead.Magpies won last weekend due to a gritty performance by the squad , some fine goalkeeping by both their keepers , however they conceded too many corners and will need to improve this weekend The Magpies defence were in fine form but Loughtonians are likely to have slicker routines.

Tristan Baynes sustained an injury which will keep him out of the trip to Essex,however Neil Toulson, Ben Wright and Duncan Graves return to the squad, Matt Stainthorpe retains his place with Toby Tibbenham making way for Jamie Legg.
