Lucy O’Byrne opened the scoring for Leicester City Ladies with a low shot, Cosby United pulled a goal back to leave the sides level at the break. McKenzie Marta restored Leicester City Ladies lead turning in a cross from close range and Megan Footman completed the scoring heading home from close range.

Leicester City Woodgate Diamonds drew a tough group on the day and finished in 3rd place in the group, players played very well, they were caught off guard in the first game versus Aylestone Park FC Blue, who fielded a very strong team and LCW lost the game by a few goals! But in the 2nd game, the team fought well and played some cracking football. Hitting the post 4 times, with some great efforts and the majority of possession, but lost 1-0.

Leicester City Woodgate Fosse put in a great team performance to finish 2nd in their group and won through to a place in the semi-finals versus Aylestone Park FC Blue, who narrowly won by 1 goal and the Fosse were unlucky as they had a goal disallowed. The team played in the play off and finished 4th overall.

Leicester City Woodgate Foxes, again played some great football in the competition and were unlucky not to secure a place in the semi’s.
