Crucial weekend for Harleston Magpies

PUBLISHED: 07:36 18 February 2012

With games being postponed due to the weather Magpies face a crucial weekend in London, playing Oxted on Saturday followed by Bromley and Beckenham on Sunday.

The league table shows Magpies wedged between bottom-placed Bromley, and Oxted just above them. With Oxted sitting on nine points and Magpies on seven, Magpies could find themselves out of the play-off position by Saturday evening. Sunday would then offer an opportunity to pull away from Oxted and Bromley as Oxted have a tough game against Holcombe.

While Ben Wright is likely to miss Saturday’s game, Elliot Smith returns to the squad and Leigh Sitch is unavailable due to coaching commitments.

A strong squad is available which is more than capable of securing maximum points over the weekend.

Training, whilst disrupted by weather, has been going well and it is really good to report on only one injury in the squad.

Squad (from): Richard Gill, Tristan Baynes, Andy Bedwell, Pete Bale, Richard Ling, Sebastion Knights, Tristan Baynes, David Ling, Rees Leonard, Ben Wright, Mark Stackpoole, Mark Wheelhouse(Capt), James Fanger, Rhodri Furlong, Will Blyth, Elliot Smith.
