Many squads have achieved the highest level possible with national final appearances, including the U12 girls, U14 boys and girls, with semi-final finishes for both the boys and girls U18s.

Last Friday it was all about celebrating this success and recognising all the hard work of those both on and off the pitch.

Over 120 children played games throughout the early evening and then crowded into the clubhouse to see the recipients of the annual awards, presented by stars of Magpies’ first teams and former junior members Rose Winter and Jack Hobbs.

The junior section was also delighted to welcome Andrew Longe, honorary life member of Harleston Magpies. to present the Longe Trophy for outstanding youth coaching services. The entire room agreed that Chris Flatt was a more than worthy winner of the award for his work with junior goalkeepers.

Club youth chairman David Johnson was thrilled at the turnout for the evening, saying: “Our awards evening is always a terrific night made even better this year with a glorious summer’s evening. It really has been an exceptional season which everyone can take some credit for.”

Before the evening’s entertainment, Magpies hosted a quick sticks hockey coaching and mini tournament afternoon for three local primary schools. This introduced hockey to over 70 year three and four pupils from Pulham, Dickleburgh and Newton Flotman primary schools.
