Great Effort from Under 12s

What a great weekend it was for the u12s who came away with a well earned point in their away tie against top of the table GNG. Leicester City Ladies had several chances to score and finally did so just before half time. They were prevented from adding to their tally by the GNG keeper who made several vital saves. Despite a solid performance throughout, GNG managed to take a point back with a goal 3 minutes from time. There are a lot of positives to take from the game and the team should be proud of their efforts!

Mary’s commitment to the club over the years as a player, coach, committee member, mentor and a friend to so many was honoured at tonights game with a minutes silence before kick off.
The club would like to pass on its condolences to the family of a true club legend forever in the hearts of all who met her.

Safeguarding – Play Your Part

Please see below important information from The FA

I am writing to ask for your help today in sharing some important information about safeguarding children.

As a club official you are in a unique position to use your networks help the game spread vital messaging about keeping children safe. We are confident in the breadth of work being undertaken in this field across the country but are never complacent.

To that end, please take 60 seconds to watch a new film featuring players from our national teams and then share the link as widely as possible:

Partially Sighted Futsal

Manjit Takhar leads the way for Partially Sighted Futsal for Leicester City Woodgate Inclusive F.C. Manjit has worked very hard with a variety of groups and agencies during this season to identify and recruit potential new players to develop a specific Partially Sighted Team, several new players have been identified, but often they have been unable to commit to attend the Futsal sessions and then travel to the West Midlands once a month to compete in the National Partially Sighted Futsal League.
Manjit and Nick Bramley, a key player and goal keeping coach at Leicester City Woodgate, are so keen to play in the Partially Sighted League, that for the last 2 seasons, they have joined the Winsford Wolves Partially Sighted Team who play in the National League. Both players play a key role within the team and were influential in the team finishing runners up in the League this season, narrowly missing out on on the top spot. At the League Presentation Event held at Swindon FC, Manjit and Nick were both nominated for Players, Player of the Season for the League. Nick Bramley was very proudly announced the overall winner and presented with the League Players Player of the Season Award and was absolutely delighted. Both Players have worked tremendously hard during the season and showed great commitment travelling to games on a monthly basis as well as playing for Leicester City Woodgate in our league Fixtures programme.

If you are partially sighted, or indeed you know someone who is, who would like to get involved, in-particularly we are looking to recruit male players 15years of age and over to develop an Adults team to play in the National League, but players from 6 years old up to and including adults, males and females are invited to come along and join in with one of our different sessions.
