Baypoint (H) - 8th October 2023
By David Hansen
Cup action stays at Hartsdown Park for another week as the Margate Women begin their campaign in the League Cup against Baypoint on Sunday afternoon looking for their place in the next round.
Sunday sees the inaugural match between the two sides as they play in different leagues, with Margate playing in the SECWFL Premier division whilst our visitors play their league games in the SECWFL Kent division 1 east.
Last time out for Margate was the history making day in the FA Cup where they advanced to the 3rd qualifying round for the first time in their history, running out a 7-1 win against Bromleians last week to set up a tie against Millwall Lionesses on the 22nd of October.
It's been a difficult start for Baypoint in their league campaign as they’ve only picked up 1 point from their first 5 league games which came in a 4-4 draw against Sheppey United at the Baypoint Fitness & Sports Centre but last time out they were defeated 10-0 by Faversham Strike Force.
There is a chance of a return to action for midfielder Harriet Chapman to full action as she was only named on the bench for the FA Cup win last week.
This game may come slightly early for a return to action for striker Paige Godden as she is still recovering from a broken toe.
The same story for midfielder Nicole Adams as she is still recovering from a foot injury and looks as if she may be unavailable.
There are no new injury concerns currently from the last game or from training this week and manager Steph Meek should have options from the bench.
Most starting Appearances: Kemp, Niblett, Wood, Coltham-Lai, Kew-Stroud - (5)
Most Sub Appearances: Mann - (3)
Top Scorers: Godden, Kew-Stroud - (4)
Top Assister: Niblett - (6)
Supporters wanting access to the game can enter the ground by the gate next to the turnstiles with Admission being £2 for adults and £1 for Concessions.
