Harleston faced St Albans and this game would answer their question of whether all Magpies' pre-season hard work and commitment had paid off.

Beating St Albans would give them three out of three wins for the beginning of the season, and take points away from their biggest rivals.

Harleston faced St Albans and this game would answer their question of whether all Magpies' pre-season hard work and commitment had paid off.

Beating St Albans would give them three out of three wins for the beginning of the season, and take points away from their biggest rivals.

A well dragged out ball enabled Hipwell to rocket the ball past the St Albans keeper.

Magpies continued to push hard where some great play left Jimmy Wheeler with a one-on-one with the goalie, slotting a reverse-stick shot across the line.

The high intensity that St Albans started the game with was starting to deteriorate, but Magpies kept the same pace going, where soon they gained possession of the game. This lead to a break where Wheeler was celebrating after grabbing a cheeky reverse-stick deflection.

St Albans fought back hard and converted a short corner.

T Baynes was shown a yellow card for a tackle which seemed mild to previous ones which had been given to other players on the pitch. Magpies managed to continue playing well during this time.

Once all 11 players were reunited on the Magpies squad they pushed back even harder and won a short corner. Neil Touslon deflected the ball into the back of the net to make the final score 4-1, a good win.
