The Peoples Cup


The Peoples Cup for Inclusive Teams was held at Aylestone Park Football Club on Sunday 24th January.

Leicester City Woodgate Adult Male Teams competed against teams from Rushden & Diamonds, Derby Diamonds, Asfordby Amateurs and Aylestone Park.

Leicester City Woodgate Diamonds drew a tough group on the day and finished in 3rd place in the group, players played very well, they were caught off guard in the first game versus Aylestone Park FC Blue, who fielded a very strong team and LCW lost the game by a few goals! But in the 2nd game, the team fought well and played some cracking football. Hitting the post 4 times, with some great efforts and the majority of possession, but lost 1-0.

Leicester City Woodgate Fosse put in a great team performance to finish 2nd in their group and won through to a place in the semi-finals versus Aylestone Park FC Blue, who narrowly won by 1 goal and the Fosse were unlucky as they had a goal disallowed. The team played in the play off and finished 4th overall.

Leicester City Woodgate Foxes, again played some great football in the competition and were unlucky not to secure a place in the semi’s.

A great day of football, although a tough day for All of our teams. Many ‘Thanks’ go to Philippa Bass and County FA Staff for organising the event for the 2nd Year running.

The Youth event was won by Oadby & Wigston Inclusive FC who won a hard fought game against Birstall Utd in the final.

Aylestone Park FC Blue won the Adults Division after extra time.

Leicester City Woodgate would like to wish both the teams ‘Good Luck’ in the Regional Event to be held at the end of February.
