Harleston Magpies Ladies turned in an excellent display in their final match of the season to beat St Albans 4-0 and secure an excellent fourth place finish.

Cheered on by a big crowd at The Nest, Magpies got their noses in front in the 33rd minute when Elizabeth Clymer provided the finishing touch after a counter-attack.

The hosts got their second goal early in the second half as Maria Andrews picked up a loose ball in the circle and flicked it in to the goal.

Not long after the same player hit the target from a short corner to become top scorer in the league, with a first team player-of-the-season award to follow after the game.

The final goal was scored after some great skill by Abby Gooderham, who calmly flicked the ball home to make it 4-0.
