Under 15s Reach County Cup Final


On a damp and misty morning Leicester City Ladies kicked off this under 15s County Cup Semi Final and put Birstall United under pressure from the start.
Using the flanks to their advantage with some great wing play to open up the Birstall United defence Leicester City Ladies opened the scoring on ten minutes through Connie.
Leicester City Ladies doubled their advantage in the twenty third minute.
Leicester City Ladies were now playing some great attractive football starting from the back with the goalkeeper Chloe and the defence of Laura and Paige and the midfield players feeding they forwards but for the Birstall United keeper City could have been further ahead,
with Connie and Niamh causing all sorts of problems.
Leicester City Ladies increased their lead in the thirty fifth minute when Annie shot into the bottom right hand corner of the net, and after thirty eight minutes went further ahead when Megan collected the ball in the centre of midfield to rifle in a shot from twenty five yards to make it 4-0 to Leicester to cap a great first half performance.
In the second half Birstall United pulled a goal back in the forty third minute.
The pitch conditions started to to get very heavy and hindered the football of both side.
Midway through the half Leicester City Ladies Lauren went through three tackles and the shot went to the keeper.
Leicester City Ladies had a few more chances in the half with shots by Simran and Demi but no further score.
