Norwich City Mixed 1 Harleston Magpies Mixed 9
Magpies dominated the opening minutes of this first round match between old rivals in the England Hockey Mixed Trophy but with City defending well it took Magpies ten minutes to make the break through by Martin Fields. City gradually came more into the game but as throughout they were let down by their shooting. Chris Barber (2), Lizzie Clymer and Lucy Whiting then added goals to make it 5-0 to Magpies at half time. City enjoyed their best spell of the game immediately after the break during which they deservedly scored through Leigh-Ann Worrall and it was not until Lauren Barber fired high into the City net did Magpies re-establish their superiority. In the closing minutes of a well-contested and sporting encounter Chris scored again before Martin added two more to complete the scoring.
The second round is on Sunday 22 February.
Magpies’ squad – Leigh Sitch (captain), Katrina Sitch (vice-captain), Chris Barber, Lauren Barber, Andrew Bedwell, Amy Campbell, Lizzie Clymer, Matt Collinge (GK), Martin Fields, Simon Hipwell, Richard Larkin, Will Martin, James Meek, Frances Taylor, Lucy Whiting, Sam Moore (manager).
