Good Start To League Campaign For The Diamonds

Leicester City Ladies Diamonds U15’s started the season in strong style with a convincing 8-1 away victory against Asfordby Amateurs. Leicester were on the front foot from the start and deserved to be ahead a lot sooner than they were. Molly opened the scoring then Lauren saw a thumping header come back off the bar but against the run of play Leicester were pegged back to 1-1 with Asfordby’s only shot on target all game. Jenna soon restored Leicester’s lead and they went into half time with a 2-1 lead. Half Time Score: Asfordby Amateurs 1 Leicester City Ladies Diamonds 2.
The second half proved a much more convincing finishing display with six more goals coming from Molly x 2 to complete her hat-trick, a hat-trick from Jenna, a brave header by D’shayney and a long range shot from Tiarna. Such was Leicester’s dominance in the 2nd half the Leicester keeper didn’t actually touch the ball. Overall a very encouraging display but there is a lot more to come from the girls. Final Score Asfordby Amateurs 1 Leicester City Ladies Diamonds 8. Jocelyn, Shania, Olivia D, Beth, Tamzin, Olivia C, Tiarna x 1, Lauren, Jenna x 3, D’shayney x 1, Molly x 3, Chloe.
