County Cup Victory

21396703142_10777ec6ba_mA huge well done to Leicester City Ladies Under 12s who won their first competitive game together this Sunday in the first round of the County Cup.
After their first league game was postponed, they welcomed Hinckley AFC Juniors U12 Girls to Linwood Playing Fields. Both teams started the game with great enthusiasm but it was Leicester City Ladies who took the lead with Ellie scoring two great goals in the first half. Leicester looked dangerous on the attack and could easily have been further ahead at the break.
The second half started off a little shaky for the home side, with Hinckley scoring within the first ten minutes. There were some great changes from both teams, but some great saves were pulled off from both goalkeepers to keep their teams in the game. In the final ten minutes the tension was unbearable for coaches and spectators alike, with Hinckley very close to equalising in the final few minutes.
A huge well done to all of the players for brilliant individual performances all round and a huge thankyou to all parents and families for their support.
Final Score: Leicester City Ladies 2 – 1 Hinckley AFC Juniors
Man of the Match as voted by parents deservedly goes to goalkeeper Charlotte for an excellent performance.
