The first weekend of league action sees an array of results for Leicester
Leicester ladies travelled down to Bristol this weekend to kick off the start of the season against Clifton.
The first half was a cagey affair with both teams creating chances in front of goal but neither being able to take the lead going into halftime.
Clifton took an early lead in the second half with a well taken penalty corner routine. The Leicester girls stepped up the press and took more risks going resulting in a few close chances however couldn’t find the back of the net. With Leicester pushing players forwards seeking a crucial equaliser an Clifton break resulted in another goal which put the game out of reach.
Not the fairy tale start for Leicester’s 2017/18 campaign however a lot learnt. Next Saturday, Leicester play East Grinstead at home 13:00, hoping to gain their first points of the season.
GAME one, GAME on….. An early drive to fetch white shirts, a posh coffee on the way home, for a change I didn’t drive to Soar Valley Leisure Centre and my daughter had her kit ready 5 mins before we had to leave. The day could not have started better.
