Deal Town (H) - 5th December 2023

By David Hansen

Margate Women begin their campaign in the Combined Counties Cup as they play their first game of the season under the lights at Hartsdown Park against local rivals Deal Town.

Although both teams are local in Kent they play in separate divisions, with Deal Town playing in Division 1 East and Margate playing in the Premier Division of the South-Eastern Counties Women’s Football League. However, these teams have met in a clash as both teams started their pre-season campaigns.

The first pre-season match of the season Margate beat Deal Town 4-3 at Hartsdown Park in hot and muggy conditions. The game included a hat-trick from striker Paige Godden who will be hoping to repeat her good goal scoring form on Tuesday night.

Looking back at Deal Town's last three fixtures it doesn’t make good reading as they have suffered defeats in two of their last three matches. Starting with a 3-2 loss against Faversham Strike Force at home, followed by an exit in the Kent Women’s Plate against Tonbridge Angels after a 5-0 defet at the Longmead Stadium. Most recently they picked up a single point away against Sheppey United at Holm Park in the league.

Margate had their run of four games unbeaten in the league ended on Sunday afternoon as league leaders XL took a 3-1 victory in the cold and wet. However, before that Margate recorded two quality wins on the road 2-1 against London Road and Woodcoombe LFC to leave them 5th in their own league campaign.

Past Meeting:

Margate Women 4-3 Deal Town – Friendly - (08/07/23)

Goals: Paige Godden x3, Rhyanna Bailey x1

Team News:

Goalkeeper Jasmine Wood will be unavailable for the game this coming Tuesday and Jemma Barton remains side-lined as she continues her recovery from a knee injury.

Kick-off for the game at Hartsdown Park is 7:45pm with entrance next to the turnstiles and tickets costing £2 for adults and £1 for concessions.
