Harleston Magpies U12 Girls report


Finished equal 1st

Magpies A played in the Gold section with fewer but longer matches.

The first match against Norwich City A was the decisive match of the Tournament and resulted in a disappointing 0-0 draw, although Magpies will feel that they did enough in the final stages of the match to win it, going very close with two late chances.

Against Dereham Magpies soon got into their stride with two goals each for Lottie Summers and Amelia Preece to record a 4-0 win.

Similarly against Norwich Dragons Magpies showed a ruthless streak winning 5-0. Lottie Summers 2, Amelia Preece 2 and Rose Winter.

In the final match Magpies again won 5-0 against Pelicans with goals from Lottie Summers 3 and Amelia Preece 2 with both girls in great form throughout the Tournament. Magpies thought they had scored enough goals to win the Tournament on goal difference, but it was not to be. Both Magpies and Norwich City were equal on goal difference so finished equal first.

Next week Magpies will be playing in the Norfolk Championship at Pelicans as they compete for a place in the East Finals.

Team: Lottie Summers (Capt), Shannon Hedge (GK), Rose Winter, Amelia Preece, Hannah Dobson, Martha Lawrence, Amelia Herschel-Shorland, Anna Kilbourn and Mia King.

Magpies U12 Girls won their opening match 1-0 against Norwich Dragons thanks to a goal from Georgie Warren. Next up Magpies played Dereham A in a game they needed to win if they were going to finish in the top two teams to qualify for the East Finals. Unfortunately the result was 0-0.

Harleston Magpies U10/U12 Girls Tournament


Harleston Magpies hosted their annual Girls Mini Tournament with ten U12 teams and seven U10 teams. Some excellent hockey was played in the warm conditions.

Unfortunately Magpies U12 A team having finished 2nd and 1st in recent Tournaments saved their worst results for their own Tournament. They did not play badly but for some reason just seemed unable to finish off their good work by putting the ball in the net. They were unbeaten but no less than seven 0-0 score lines ensured that they would not be competing for the medals. Their only wins came against Watton and Norwich Dragons. They finished 5th.

Team: Georgina Warren (Capt), Anna Kilbourn, Hannah Dobson, Lottie Summers, Ismay Whittaker, Alice Woollatt, Sophie Child, Mia King, Martha Lawrence and Amelia Preece.

Magpies U12 B team continue to progress the more they play Tournament hockey. It is very hard to compete against A teams but the side did well with four drawn matches. Their best results were drawing against Pelicans and Magpies A. They finished 9th.

Team: Hollie Sewell, Charlotte Johnson, Shannon Hedge, Ellen Harness, Matilda Warde-Adlam, Mia Gower, Abigail Bourne, Amy Hill, Liberty Chatten and Rose Winter.

The U10 Girls are doing their own Tournament report.

We are very grateful for the large number of helpers who gave up their time to make this a successful Tournament.

Harleston Magpies U12 Girls


The Under 12 Girls Tournament was played in three sections. Magpies were in the same group as Canterbury, Cambridge City, Upminster and Sudbury.

Harleston Magpies made a very promising start in their opening game when Isobel Knowles scored early on to take the lead against Cambridge City. With 90 seconds left on the clock Magpies seemed as though they would hang on to their win. Unfortunately Cambridge equalised in the last minute.

Against Sudbury Magpies produced their most disappointing performance in a game they needed to win after dropping points against Cambridge. For some reason the spark was missing as Magpies played out a 0-0 draw.

Canterbury was to be their hardest game and Magpies produced a very good performance. Magpies had two tremendous goal scoring chances in the first and last minute of the match but they just could not take them. In between Canterbury had their chances but Lucie Gooch in goal made some excellent saves. As it turned out Canterbury went on to be the East Winners.

With three draws Magpies had to win their last game against Upminster to have a chance of going through to the final stages. Eventually Magpies scored in the second half with an excellent inter passing movement between Georgina Warren and Anna Harrod to set up Isobel Knowles to score. Upminster fought back to score a late equaliser but with a minute left Anna Harrod scored the winner.

As it turned out this was not enough for Magpies to go through to the final stages. Ironically Magpies were probably the only unbeaten team in the Tournament as the eventual winners Canterbury lost a game in the section.

Team: ElizaBell (Capt), Lucie Gooch, Sophie Dixon, Sophie Child, Hannah Dobson, Elle Eglington, Georgina Warren, Anna Harrod, Martha Lawrence and Isobel Knowles

Magpies U12 Girls at Dereham Report


Harleston Magpies Girls U12A team having finished second in the County Finals and first in the Watton Tournament in the previous two weeks came back to earth with a bump, when they finished fourth at the Dereham Tournament.

With the Tournament in two sections Magpies needed to start with a win but a very indifferent performance saw them draw 0-0 with Dereham B. The team was slightly disrupted by the absence of a late arrival but they should still have been able to score. The next game against Norwich City A the County winners saw Magpies play much better in a hard fought 0-0 draw. Magpies finally started scoring goals when they beat Norwich Dragons 2-0 and finished off their section game with a 1-0 win against Watton.

As the runners up in their section Magpies played Pelicans in the third /fourth play off. Pelicans quickly took a 2-0 lead and despite Magpies pulling a goal back to make it 2-1 it was too late.

With Magpies playing in the East Finals on Saturday April 16th at Harleston, they will need to raise their game considerably on this big occasion.

Magpies A team

Eliza Bell, Lucie Gooch, Sophie Dixon, Amy Ryder, Anna Harrod, Isobel Knowles, Elle Eglington and Georgina Warren

Harleston Magpies Girls U12 B team had a rare chance to play in a Tournament and for four of them this was their first Tournament.

They started really well losing narrowly 1-0 against Norwich City B team. Two very difficult matches saw them lose 3-0 to Dereham A and 4-0 to Pelicans. In their game against Dereham C they were very unlucky to draw 0-0 as they hit the post and had several other good chances.

In the cross over play offs they drew 0-0 with Watton which was a very good result and performance. They worked very hard as a team and continued to improve throughout the Tournament and this was a great experience for them. They finished 8th . Thanks to Lisa Dobson for running the team.

Harleston Magpies U12 Girls


Harleston Magpies Under 12 Girls finished as runners up in the Norfolk Club Championship and so qualified for the East Finals on the weekend of April 16th or 17th to be held at Harleston Magpies.

Magpies started slowly as they struggled in their first game against Norwich Dragons but eventually won 2-0 (Eliza Bell, Isobel Knowles). They showed much more confidence when beating Dereham B 3-0 with Sophie Dixon opening the scoring with a penalty corner strike and Anna Harrod and Eliza Bell adding further goals.

Magpies beat Watton 5-0 with goals from Eliza Bell 2, Georgina Warren, Anna Harrod and Isobel Knowles all chipping in with goals. Pelicans gave Magpies a real shock by taking the lead in their hardest game so far but Magpies fought back well and two goals from Isobel Knowles ensured Magpies kept their 100% record.

In their penultimate match Magpies met the favourites Norwich City and they played their best hockey of the Tournament and were very unlucky to lose 1-0. Magpies had two tremendous chances in the opening few minutes but just could not put them away. Norwich City then took the lead but Magpies still had several promising attacks where they had the numerical advantage but just could not find the equaliser.

This meant that in their final game Magpies needed a draw and Dereham needed a win to clinch second place. Magpies just hung on for the draw and were clearly suffering from the tremendous work they had put into the Norwich match. Fortunately Lucie Gooch in goal made a couple of important saves to ensure Magpies came second.

Squad: Eliza Bell (Capt), Lucie Gooch, Sophie Dixon, Amy Ryder, Sophie Child, Georgina Warren, Elle Eglington, Isobel Knowles and Anna Harrod.
