Under 11s win Respect Festival

Leicester City Ladies Under 11’s kept up their good form by winning the RESPECT Festival at Holmes Park on Sunday 5th June!!

The girls emerged from the group stages in 2nd place, with 13 points from a possible 18. The girls had played some good football in patches over the day but hadn’t really got going!
We then faced Bedworth Eagles in the Semi Final which, as expected, was a very close game! Foxy scored a good goal after an excellent cross from Olivia to give us the lead in the second half and the girls held on to win 1-0.

We then faced Oadby & Wigston in the final. They had thrashed us 5-0 in the league game earlier in the day, so the girls were determined to give them a better game! With a slight change of tactics and some better defending we held our own against a strong Oadby & Wigston team. Lauren turned out to be the hero by marking their best player out of the game and also scoring the winning goal!!
The girls certainly saved their best performance for the final and in the end were deserved winners. Another great day for the girls in what has been a brilliant season, well done girls.
