Opening Day Win


Leicester City Ladies (2010) travelled to Harborough Town for their first league fixture of the new season.
Both teams settled into the game, but as the half wore on Leicester City Ladies started to have more possession and were testing the Harborough Town defence and goalkeeper. Mid way into the half Leicester City Ladies attacked down the left, Megan crossed to the far post and Jenna slotted the ball into the far corner.

Leicester City Ladies came out for the second half strongly and created numerous chances to increase their lead, but came up against a very good goalkeeper on the day. Chloe and Olivia had good efforts from distance but were denied by the keeper. Despite having lots of possession in the second half the Leicester City Ladies defence had to be on their toes and were quick to deal with any Harborough Town attacks.
