Sensational City Smash Six Past Coventry & North Warks
Leicester City Firsts arrived at Coventry and North Warwickshire coach-less (where was Elsbeth?!) and short on numbers but captain Declan was still confident of getting a result.
Powered by tinned tuna and setting up in an unorthodox 3-4-2, City soon established dominance in the centre of the pitch with Declan and Karl controlling possession and tempo. The early pressure paid off as "Clinical" David Magill grabbed his customary poacher’s brace, Karl soon added a third as he danced through the D before slotting the ball past the home ‘keeper.
The home side looked to get back in to the game with some long balls forward to their pacey attackers but these were comfortably dealt with by the makeshift backline of Boyce, Jacob D and Mike.
The fourth City goal was steeped in DOTD earning controversy, Karl again weaved some magic to make space for a powerful shot which was flying in before Mo made sure with a completely unnecessary deflection that sent the ball in to the roof of the net.
With the visitors looking comfortable, ‘keeper Spencer whipped his pads off during the break to finally make his on pitch debut. He promptly pulled up lame after an early foray over the halfway line and spent the rest of the game camped on the edge of the City D.
The second half was a much tighter affair as the home team upped the tempo and forced a few short corners which went unconverted. City weathered the storm and strong wing play from Joseph and Jacob B led to further goals for Karl and David M.
MOTM – Mike ‘half back’ Taylor
DOTD – Mo ‘the goal thief’ Shah
Squad: Spencer Murphy (GK), Daryl Boyce, David Magill, Declan Shepherd (C), Jacob Burns, Jacob Donald, Joe Collins, Karl Taitt, Mike Taylor, Mo Shah
PS. Slightly overlooked in all the results, but today was the first time we put out two men's teams, taking the next step towards total league domination. Thank you to everyone for your efforts and support on and off the pitch today.
