Supurb Fightback


Leicester City Ladies under 16s started the game without a recognised goalkeeper due to injuries, centre half Amy was the only one to volunteer and stepped between the posts.

Desford Ladies started the game well and went in to a three goal lead inside the first half hour.

Leicester City Ladies defence never looked secure, but were able to pull a goal back through Bethany to make the score 3-1 at half time.

The Leicester City Ladies half time talk highlighted the need for Amy to resume her position at center half and Lauren volunteered to play in goal in the second half having played so well in the first half up front.

Having sorted the defence out Leicester City Ladies soon gained full control of the match and with further goals from Bethany, Dexter and Sophie secured the win.

Manager Roger Holt commented after the game “I would like to congratulate everyone of my players for their perseverance and belief in themselves to go on to win the game. I would like to congratulate the Desford players in which was a thrilling game and wish them every success for the coming season.”
