Solid Win


Leicester City Ladies faced Asfordby Amateurs in their first game after two weeks off on a cold and rainy Sunday Morning.
Leicester City Ladies started the game fairly well and began to create chances from the start. They had to be switched on in defence though as Asfordby Amateurs were quick going forward. Leicester City Ladies defender Beth did a fantastic job of keeping their best player at bay. Leicester City Ladies did take the lead through captain Lauren after a good pass from Molly, with Foxy adding a second shortly after. The game became very scrappy in midfield with both teams struggling to get hold of the ball. Lauren then made the game 3-0 with a touch of individual brilliance from a position that looked impossible to score. Olivia was then unlucky not to score after a good cross from Tamzin. Striker Jade eventually made 4-0, much to her relief after seeing numerous shots saved or go narrowly wide earlier in the game. Asfordby Amateurs themselves had chances to score but Leicester City Ladies goalkeeper Viv was alert to make some good saves.

Asfordby Amateurs came out fighting in the second half and starting to put Leicester’s defence under pressure. The girls stood up to the task fairly well and had their own chances to increase their lead further which they unfortunately they could not take. The second half remained very even with both teams cancelling each other out.

A bit of a scrappy game for Leicester which was maybe to be expected after 2 weeks without a game. Another good win though and an exciting few weeks of league games and County Cup Semi Final for the girls.
