Season Review

The Diamonds have had a very good season finishing 2nd in the League to a very strong Oadby & Wigston Rovers side. They also finished runners up in the County Cup after losing 3-1 to Oadby Owls in extra time having beaten Oadby & Wigston Rovers 5-1 and Asfordby 8-0 on the way to the Final. They also got knocked out in the Semi Final of the League Cup after losing on penalties 3-2 after drawing the game 2-2 to Oadby & Wigston Rovers despite being the better side on the day. They had beaten Harborough Town 2-0 and Oadby Owls 3-2 on the way to the Final. In my opinion the girls deserved to win a trophy this season for their efforts but football isn’t always fair and April has proved to be a disappointing month in the final run of fixtures. However credit must go to 2 strong sides in Oadby & Wigston Rovers & Oadby Owls who beat them in the games that mattered. The girls will now look forward to their end of season tour to Butlins in Bognor.
