Firsts Cruise Through to Semis
The County Cup quarter final draw for Leicester City Ladies was kinder this year than last as they faced Leicestershire side Ashfordby Amateurs. In their previous match Asahfordby had held unbeaten Heather until late in the game in a 3-2 defeat City knew they had to approach the game right and they did just that.
Early goals from Preston and Hillier set the tone and the home side led 7-1 at half time with Ashfordby Amateurs goal coming from a well worked corner.
Second half Leicester City Ladies dominated again and five more goals gave them a solid 12-1 win. Leicester City Ladies Manager Matt cook commented “It was nice to avoid the bigger teams for once in this competition, obviously we can’t avoid them forever but I think a game like this gives us time to prepare new things, get players minutes on the pitch and time to recover from injuries. Score line is irrelevant really I was most pleased with the attitude and respect to the game from every one of my team. Player of the match, I have no idea but I should really give it to Chiv who scored a wonderful goal with a mazy dribble and chip over the keeper”
City now travel to play Leicester Women in the semi finals.
