Magpies IV 2 Thetford 0
Martin And Acock Norfolk Women’s League
AFTER picking up their first point of the season last week, Magpies were looking to go one better this weekend and get a win, and they faced Thetford in an early evening push-back at Weybread.
With light drizzle falling, Magpies started well, with communication high and the team playing as a complete unit. And with Thetford a player short, Magpies wanted to capitalise early on, and the home side were rewarded for their efforts when a lovely through ball from Josie Tibbenham cut the Thetford defence in half, and Kay Dennis ran the ball into the D and fired past the ‘keeper into the corner. Magpies continued to play well, enjoying most of the possession but they couldn’t extend their advantage going into half-time.
The second half saw Magpies pushed back more into their defensive half, with Thetford winning a couple of short corners, but Magpies stayed firm at the back and defended well. It was a battling half, with all 14 players for Magpies rotating in and fighting to keep their lead.

Minutes before the final whistle Katie Webb made the game safe, finding herself one-on-one with the ‘keeper to double the score.
A well-deserved victory for Magpies, with credit going to Vicky Blackmore, Sarah Legg and captain Katie Mound for their outstanding defensive performances. Well done ladies!
