Harleston Magpies Ladies put a disappointing run of results behind them by turning in an excellent performance to beat visitors Southgate 3-0.

They started well, with the midfield of Charlotte Harrison and Annie Nunn, augmented by the return of Debbie Francis, prominent and Lauren Barber in support.

The deadlock was broken by the introduction of Tor Findlay who coolly slotted home after some strong running and an accurate cross from Lucy Whiting. Charlotte Peet then made an important save to keep it at 1-0 and after the break Magpies continued to create chances.

Emma Lee-Smith found herself in space to score her first from the top of the circle after an interception. She then finished off her brace by firing in a rebound after another positive run from Whiting down the right and a saved shot from Harrison.

It was excellent to see the return of Katrina Sitch and Francis who both made a real impact in their areas of the pitch. Next weekend Magpies are away at St Albans.
