Ten minutes leave too big a mountain to climb

Leicester City Ladies under 16s travelled to Stretton Swifts with high hopes and started the game very well.  But a ten minute spell at the end of the first half gave Strettons a 3- 0 half time lead, up until then  Leicester City Ladies looked the more likely side to score.

Leicester City Ladies came out in the second half and we upped our temp0 scoring two goals from Charlotte which made the score 3-2.

With ten minutes to go Leicester City Ladies pushed up the full backs up in search of the equaliser but with two minutes to go Stretton Swifts broke away to score their 4th goal.

It was a great effort from the girls and well done to you all in which was a great game, and we can look forward to the rest of the season with great optomism.

Congratulations to Stretton Swifts as they played their part in what was a fantastic game, and we look forward to playing them again later in the season.
