Margate FC Women travelled to newly promoted Woodcoombe on Sunday afternoon as they continued their pre-season schedule.

However, the second half was not without its challenges. In the 59th minute, Woodcoombe's goalkeeper clashed with a player while making a save, resulting in a split lip. The injury caused a ten-minute stoppage in play and ultimately led to the goalkeeper being substituted.
Margate continued to play with high intensity and maintained their dominance throughout the match. Woodcoombe struggled to find a way past Margate's solid defence, and the visitors managed to keep a clean sheet.
In the closing minutes of the game, Margate's goalkeeper suffered an injury, leaving the team with no choice but to field an outfield player as a makeshift goalkeeper.
The final score saw Margate head home with a convincing 8-0 win. The team showcased their attacking strength and demonstrated their ability to convert chances into goals.
