Under 11s through to County Cup Final

Leicester City Ladies started the game brightly and created numerous chances early on but were met with a GNG goalkeeper in brilliant form. Leicester City Ladies tried everything to get a goal but nothing seemed to be going for them. GNG defended solidly and were always a threat on the break with a pacey and skilful midfield player.

Half Time 0-0

The second half started much the same with Leicester dominating possession and creating all the chances. Once again the GNG goalkeeper played outstanding making lots of good saves. Leicester kept trying but just could find a goal in this game. The Leicester defence had to stay on their toes and GNG themselves had a few chances to score but Leicester goalkeeper Viv also pulled off some good saves.

Full Time 0-0

The game went into 5 minutes extra time but still neither team could find a goal, so the match went to a penalty shoot out.

Both Leicester City Ladies and GNG missed their first penalties with both goalies making good saves. Chloe scored her penalty to make it 1-0 to Leicester, Viv saved the next and Lauren scored with a great finish to make it 2-0 to Leicester. Leicester then missed a chance to win the shoot out, but Viv was in no mood to be beaten and made another great save to send Leicester through to the County Cup Final!!!

Player of the Match: Viv – Although this was a fairly quiet game for goalkeeper Viv, she stepped up to save all 3 penalties in the shoot out and displayed so much focus and determination to win…Well Done!

Squad: Viv, Megan, Laura, Lauren, Foxy, Chloe, Beth, Emily, Isabelle, Maisie and Shania
