Firsts Bounce Back

Aimie CattellAfter a few difficult weeks for Leicester City Ladies with numerous players missing City had more of a team back and they battled out a hard fought win over Radcliffe Olympic.
The game could not of started any better for Leicester City Ladies as Gemma Ball hit a fine free kick for what turned out to be the winner within three minutes. Two red cards later the game become stretched and a battle for both sides. City’s organisation this season for the majority has been superb and once again they stood strong. Hillier had a chance late on but fired an excellent strike just wide. Goalkeeper Cat on her return from injury was excellent punching away numerous long balls. City stood firm and credit to the girls for coming through a difficult period with such integrity.
Overall a vital win for Leicester City Ladies to kick start their season, manager Matt Cook commented “funnily we have played so much better but came away with nothing, today was about heart and spirit and not wanting to get beat. Some Players came back today, and if we get everyone back and fit we know we can push on now.”
