Harleston Magpies Ladies looking for home tonic in National Hockey League tie against Maidstone
Harleston Magpies Ladies return to National League action on Sunday when they play host to Maidstone (12.30pm).
Magpies start the second half of the season in seventh position but are uncomfortably close to the two relegation spots currently held by Horsham and Old Loughtonians.
In the earlier encounter in the season Magpies were unfortunate to lose 1-0. Having conceded a goal against the run of play they found it very difficult to break Maidstone down in the freak October heatwave conditionsr.
Hopefully there will be a good home crowd to give Magpies the support they will need in this critical home game. A home win would give the team a massive boost in confidence as well as give them a lift up the table.
Verity Blyth will be absent for the second half of the season as she is away travelling in New Zealand. Naomi Hull will also miss a number of league games because of work commitments.
You may also want to watch:
However Emily Wilford is available for the second half of the season and hopefully she will add some much needed fire power to the forward line.
Catherine Cranmer will be available for most of the remaining League games and her experience will add much to the defence.
