Harleston Magpies Ladies sponsored by Kitchen Sense of Harleston play Loughborough Students at home on Saturday starting at 12.30 in their English League Division I game. Magpies can take a number of positives from their game away at Doncaster last week, as for large parts of the game they matched their opponents in most departments. Concentration for 70 minutes with a young team is something the players will have to learn very quickly as they compete against older and more experienced players. In the end that was the difference between the two teams.

Jess Hull in midfield has shown that she can make the step up to National League hockey, whilst Lucy Miller at right defender looks very solid. Artemis Clark on penalty corner strikes has looked more threatening each week and at times can be a real attacking force from right midfield. The youngest player in the team Cherry Seaborn has been great playing up front.

Loughborough Students as always will be tough opponent as they have more time together to prepare during the week and are able to recruit quality players. Magpies will be looking to continue the progress they made last week and will continue with a very positive attitude.

Squad from: Louisa Greenacre (capt), Lucy Hayman, Ellie Blake, Lucy Miller, Debbie McAllen, Jess Hull, Artemis Clark, Helen Brook, Amelia Thomson, Katrina Warnes, Sarah Cave, Laura Parker, Cherry Seaborn, Kathryn Hinsley and Angie Wheelhouse.
