Under 15s at the King Power

18315539391_3dd35b7892_mThe Under 15’s took a squad of eight players for this six a side tournament. Six teams made up the group with teo Leicester City Ladies teams, two from Oadby & Wigston and two from Syston Town.
The girls won their first game 2 – 1 against Syston Town A. Two nil nil draws followed against Leicester City Ladies Diamonds and Syston Town B.
A one nil win against Oadby & Wigston B set up the final group game against Oadby & Wigston A to decide the winners and runners up of the group stage.
A very close game was played out with the girls taking the lead but Oadby & Wigston came back strongly and won the game 2 – 1.
The girls played some great football to finish second in the group with a record of, played 5, won 2, drew 2, lost 1.
So to the semi finals and the girls played Syston Town A who they had played in the first game. With very few clear cut chances in the game, it finished nil nil, so with no extra time it was straight to a penalty shoot out. Which finished 3 – 3 after five penalties each , so it went to sudden death and Syston won through on the day.
It was tough on the girls who had only lost one game in open play, but that’s tournament football.
All of the girls should be proud of their efforts on the day.
The players and two coaches thoroughly enjoyed the day and the opportunity to play and coach at the King Power Stadium.

The team are looking for players to strengthen the squad for the new season ahead. Any girls who are interested should contact the manager Nathan Worrall by phone 07542741260 or email

Season Review

Under15-2014-15
Squad
Alizeh, Chloe, Danni, Emily, Emma, Isabelle, Jashika, Jaskirat, Louise, Lucy, Maya, Megan, Munashe, Priyanka, Rebecca.
As the season approached it was very doubtful whether we would have a team to play in the Leicester City & County Girls Football League.
When we were scheduled to play our first League game we had eight registered players. After a lot of hard work from some of the fantastic volunteers within LCLFC we were able to bring in seven new players who we had to get registered by the end of September or withdraw from the League an ultimatum issued by the League.
So the Under 15’s played the first League game at the end of September instead of the planned opening fixture at the end of August.
Having had to postpone the fixtures for September, despite being given that time to get a team together by the League, we were fined for postponing two of those games, this also left us facing a fine if we postponed any further games throughout the season (more on that later).
So on the 28th September the League season began with a home game against Oadby Owls. After a bright start to the game the girls took the lead but by the end were well beaten by a very strong Oadby Owls team.
After getting that first League game played it was to be another two weeks before the girls played again against the eventual League champions Oadby & Wigston Rovers, where the girls suffered their heaviest defeat of the season.
It was to be another three weeks before the girls played again, in the League against Leicester City Ladies Diamonds in what was one of the teams best performances of the season but ended in defeat by the odd goal. A week later and the girls picked up their first point of the season away to Asfordby where it was felt by the two coaches that it should have been the teams first win.
With games planned for most Sundays throughout November and December it was hoped the team would keep up this level of performance but three postponements on the trot meant only one game was played between mid November and Christmas.
With 13 League games to be played from January to April plus League cup fixtures, this caused issues on a number of occasions with the availability of players, the team played twice 10 v 11 and in one game played 9 v 11.
In what was a very tough season this group of girls showed in certain games what they are capable of playing some good football.With so many new players joining the group it was always going to be difficult to find that consistency, coming up against players and teams who have been playing for 3, 4 or 5 years.
The team eventually finished 9th in the League.
Semi finalists in the League Cup.
Quarter Finalists in the County Cup.
A special mention to Lucy, Louise, Chloe, Emily, Megan and Rebecca who stuck with this team, along with Isabelle and Danni helped the 7 new girls to the game, settle in to competitive football.
As manager the most pleasing thing this season was the development shown by all of the girls and especially the four who took their first steps into senior football, well done to Lucy,Emily,Chloe and Rebecca for playing for the LCLFC development team.

King Power Stadium

On the 27th May, our players, Juniors, Youth and Adults Teams were invited to attend a football festival held at the amazing King Power Stadium, home of Leicester City Football Club. Philippa Bass (LRCFA) and David Eassom (LCFC), welcomed players and teams who had taken part in the Midweek League, Day Centre’s and Schools and Colleges also attended who had been part of the Disability Football Development Fund programme throughout the season. The event saw around 200 players attending.
All players loved playing on the pitch and it was certainly a great opportunity for everyone.
Our Ladies played teams from Derwent College and Northampton Town FC, and had a great time too.

End of Season

17328965765_df3ea7b771_oLeicester City Ladies final month of the season saw a mix of performances and results in the league with away wins at Reedswood and Solihull the highlights.
The end of the season however will be remembered for the Leicester City Ladies first County Cup final in five years and penalty kicks is all that denied them regaining the trophy the club dominated throughout the 1990s. In a great first half of the County Cup Final saw four goals with Loughborough Students replied to Kay Hilliers early double strike. From there it came a tense affair with chances at both ends and this continued into extra time. Neither team deserved to loose on penalties but sadly someone had to and a 4-2 score line took the trophy back to Students.
Leicester City Ladies Manager Matt Cook commented after the final “It’s been a horrendous season really on and off the pitch so to have that occasion makes the season memorable, the team all had their family and mini players as mascots and the support for our team at Holmes Park was overwhelming and to be quite frank it felt like a home game, the families of the players were fantastic. To miss out on penalties is hard but the performance on the day was great. Hopefully there will be more happier events like the County Cup final next year as for a good club it’s had its hard this year, I just want to thank everybody involved for all their efforts in 2014/15.”
