Impressive Diamonds Reach County Cup Final


Leicester City Ladies Diamonds reached the County Cup Final with an impressive 8-0 victory away to Asfordby Amateurs. On a frosty morning the Diamonds showed both their footballing and battling skills in a solid first half display. The Diamonds went 2-0 up in the first 10 minutes with two good finishes from Lauren. With Leicester dominant in all areas of the pitch it was no surprise that D’shayney added two more good finishes before half time to give the Diamonds a deserved 4-0 lead at the break.

The second half started similarly to the first and the Diamonds took full control unlike the previous week when they let Asfordby Amateurs back into the game. Jenna scored a poachers goal to make it 5-0 then Olivia D went on a mazy run and finished with a good shot to make it 6-0. With Diamond’s defence keeping their concentration Asfordby Amateurs were never given a foothold in the game. Leicester City Ladies Diamonds increased their lead to 7-0 with another poacher’s goal from Jenna and Lauren completed her hat-trick with a 20 yard finish to make the final score 8-0. The girls should be very proud of themselves as it was a very impressive display and they deserve their Final against Oadby Owls in April at Holmes Park after beating Oadby and Wigston Rovers in the last round as well.
