Magpies II 6 Cambridge City 1

MAGPIES II maintained their push for promotion with a convincing 6-1 victory over Cambridge City. Magpies welcomed back rock Dan Legg, playing his first came of this year.

Magpies dominated the first half but struggled to break down a resolute Cambridge defence, the visiting keeper made several decent saves before a well-worked short corner routine between Will Harrison and Robbie Kinsella saw Harrison score. Dispite more pressure Magpies were unable to increase their lead before half time.

The second half followed a similar pattern with one difference, GOALS! Kinsella scored with a ferocious shot from a close angle. The third goal quickly followed which was an excellent link up play between Hipwell, Stacey and Jamie Legg applied the finishing touch.

Kinsella scored the fourth from a short corner before Cambridge pulled a goal back, Magpies responded immediately with Duncan Stevens being set free and beat the advancing keeper from the top of the area. They completed the scoring when James Stacey got a deserved when he deflected a long ball into the back of the net.

Another excellent team performance with some good quality passing and movement which eventually got the reward it deserved. Man of the match was Robbie Kinsella. Next up is an away trip to St Ives where Magpies look to carry on this rich vein of form.
