The Peoples Cup for Leicestershire was hosted at Harborough Town Football Club on Saturday 18th April and organised by Philippa Bass from the Leicestershire & Rutland County FA & Inclusive Football Partnership.

Leicester City Woodgate team finished 2nd in their group to secure a semi final place against local rivals Aylestone Park, the game finished level after extra time, so a penalty shoot out took place and LCW won 3-2 in the penalty competition with Adam Mattock in goal saving brilliantly to secure the victory.
The Final of the Peoples Cup saw Leicester City Woodgate compete against Mansfield Town who they had lost to, by 2-0 in the group stages. However the team, led by Captain, Martin Oswin made a brilliant start pressing forward and defending well, a well deserved 3-1 win saw Leicester City Woodgate lifting the Peoples Cup, a very proud moment indeed for the Club.
