First League Victory of the Season


LCLFC DevelopmentLeicester City Ladies Development picked up their first league win of the season, securing a great away win by beating Coalville Town 2-1. Leicester started brightly and were ahead after 15 minutes when Beth Herrick scored a screamer from 20 yards. Despite all of Leicester’s possession they couldn’t make it pay and Coalville equalised before half time.

Leicester started the second half well and continued to have lots of possession. They took the lead when Sophie Pickering played a ball over the top and Katie Smith ran on to it and finished brilliantly in to the bottom corner. Leicester would have increased their lead was it not for the Coalville goalkeeper who made numerous important saves.
A good team performance from Leicester and something to build on for the next league game.
