The first time the two sides met was in the Ladies first season when they met the Stones who were three divisions higher at Hartsdown Park. Despite hope of an upset the Bluebirds were to suffer a heavy 18-0 defeat.
Two seasons on though and testament to how the Ladies have progressed on the field both sides now play in the same league and their two meetings this season have been thrillers with Cornish’s side on the losing side twice but the gap has definitely been closed.
The first game this season Margate were handed the harshest of lessons as they were cruelly defeated late on at St Lukes as they lost 7-6 in a thrilling fixture to kick start the season.
A few weeks later the Ladies made the return trip to the Stones and despite being in the game for 90 minutes were eventually beaten 4-2 in what was a top of the table clash.
Kick off at the K Sports Ground is 1:30 so please do get along and cheer on the Ladies as they look to progress to the Semi-Final.
