Perfect Start for Under 13s


Leicester City Ladies started the new season with a visit from league newcomers Bedworth Eagles Gems.
The first ten minutes were scrappy with neither team getting hold of the ball. Leicester City Ladies did make the break through after twelve minutes when Olivia scored from long range. Leicester City Ladies began to get into their stride and started to pass the ball around confidently. The defence were solid and mopped up any attacks that Bedworth Eagles had. Leicester City Ladies soon extended their lead with two good finishes, first from Jade and then Olivia with her second of the game. Leicester City Ladies were really playing well at this point and Bedworth Eagles were struggling to cope with the speed and quality of Leicester’s play. The fourth goal came from Tamzin on her league d├ębut and was thoroughly deserved after some fantastic work down the left hand side. Leicester City Ladies fifth and sixth goals both came before half time with Jade completing her hat trick with a good finish and a well taken header.
Half Time: LCLFC 6 Bedworth Eagles Gems 0
As expected Bedworth Eagles came out fighting in the second half and made the game much more difficult for Leicester. Leicester City Ladies continued to work hard as a team and tried to play their passing game as much as possible. Foxy increased Leicester City Ladies lead to seven with a well worked goal and Captain Lauren quickly added their eighth with an unstoppable shot after a mazy run, capping a brilliant all round performance. Leicester City Ladies still had time for one more goal through a sweet left foot strike from Tamzin.
Full Time: LCLFC 9 Bedworth Eagles Gems 0
An all round brilliant team performance from Leicester City Ladies with some sparks of individual quality thrown in. The girls kept their shape brilliantly and seem to be adapting to nine a side football with ease. Well Done Girls!
Also well done to Bedworth Eagles Gems for a good competitive game, played in the right spirit by both teams. Bedworth Eagles never gave up and were much improved in the second half. We wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season.
