Leicester City Women FC 7 a side tournament

The Under 15’s entered this 7 a side tournament and played in the U16’s age group.
The girls played in a group with teams from Syston Town ( x2 ) and Barwell & Burbage.
The girls played Syston 1 in the first game and won a hard fought game 1 nil.
The second group game was against Syston 2, the girls found themselves 2 nil down early in the game. Despite a much better second half the scoreline remained 2 nil to Syston.
So to the final group game against Barwell & Burbage who had beaten both Syston teams in their first 2 games.
The girls looked to attack from the off and the girls were 2 nil up by half time. The girls saw out the second half and the scoreline remained 2 nil.
With 3 teams finishing level on points , the girls missed out on topping the group by 1 goal.
So in the semi final the girls played Barwell & Burbage again.
In a tight first half Megan nipped in to finish well after hesitancy in the Barwell defence. So the girls took a 1 nil lead into half time.
After an early goal at the start of the second half the girls produced some fantastic football scoring 3 more goals. So goals from Megan,Rebecca 3 and Indiana saw the girls through to the final after a 5 nil win, where they would play Syston 2.
In the final the girls took an early lead through another good finish from Megan.By half time Syston had sored 2 goals to go in 2 – 1 up.The girls got to grips with the game in the second half and started to play some good football again creating numerous good chances but for the performance of the Syston goalkeeper the girls may have turned the game around. But they were unable to add to the scoreline so the game finished 2 – 1 to Syston.
A great effort from all the girls playing against teams who were U16’s last season.

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 e-mail under16@lclfc.co.uk

New Senior Head Coach

Leicester City Ladies are pleased to announce the appointment of Holly Searson as Head Coach of the senior section of the club for the forthcoming season. Holly who is a UEFA ‘A’ Licence Prep qualified coach comes highly recommended with experience as player and coach at Lincoln City Women’s FA Centre of Excellence, Captain of Lincoln College Women’s FA Academy, Nottingham Forest Ladies, Red Bull New York SC and Manchester United.
Holly is a replacement for Matt Cook who has decided to stand down as First Team Manager after seven years in the position. Leicester City Ladies would like to put on record their appreciation of all Matt’s efforts in the growth and development of the club. Matt remains part of the club and will continue to support the growth of Women’s Football.
Leicester City Ladies are looking forward to the new season at Aylestone Park with Holly and her team making full use of the brand new ATP pitch for training, now twice a week, and using the main pitch for all home fixtures. The club can now offer the best facilities available in the county for the development of Junior and Senior Women’s football.
Speaking after making his decision to step down as First Team Manager Matt Cook commented “It has been 7 years and at 29 years of age it is now time for me to take on new challenges. Leicester City Ladies have been a key part in my development as a coach, a manager and a person and I will always be eternally grateful for them giving me the opportunity and I would like to think I grabbed it with both hands. I have so many fantastic memories that I cannot go into in one statement but when I think of all that’s been achieved its quite remarkable and for that I have to thank every single player over the past seven years, also every coach and committee member who backed the seniors at key times. I believe I have built friendships that will remain for a long time and that is the most rewarding thing I will take from my time as First Team Manager that far surpasses any footballing results. To conclude I have to thank Club Chairman Steve Crayfourd for trusting me at 22 years of age to work with the seniors, Club Secretary Sue Foulkes for being by my side at every moment, Mary Rudkin for guiding the football side and Mark Yates who promoted my teams so well and all the great volunteers who have helped me in anyway. Leicester City Ladies is a fantastic football club and I leave the first team management post with a heavy heart and all I can say is thank you! I have had the best time I can’t even begin to explain what the club has given me. I wish the new management team every success in the new season.”
