First Team Hit Four


Leicester City Ladies first team bounced back from Thursday nights cup semi final defeat in fine fashion beating bottom side Stratford Town four nil at Aylestone Park.
Leicester City Ladies were in good control of the game right from the start.
It took Leicester City Ladies a while to break the deadlock though as a disciplined Stratford Town side defended well with a lot of bodies behind the ball.
After creating many close chances Linda Scott opened the scoring from a cross ball, Marshall soon made it two finishing between the goalkeepers legs from close range.
Leicester City Ladies came out second half with a bit more tempo and doubles their score in the first ten minutes both through Marshall, first from a simple finish into the near post before rounded the keeper and finishing superbly to earn a well deserved hat trick. Carvell, Ball and Scott all had chances second half but the score stayed at four and a very satisfying win for the home team.
Overall Leicester City Ladies were in good control of the game and rarely forced back towards their own goal, a few more goals to the scoreline it could of been but 4-0 and a professional display left the home team and staff pleased.
