Peoples Cup Victory
The Peoples Cup for Leicestershire was hosted at Harborough Town Football Club on Saturday 18th April and organised by Philippa Bass from the Leicestershire & Rutland County FA & Inclusive Football Partnership.
The People’s Cup saw Inclusive teams competing from across the Midlands – Leicester City Woodgate-3 teams, Mansfield Town- 2 teams, Harborough Town, Aylestone Park, Redditch Special Olympics, Delos S & L- 2 teams, Riverside and Oakdale.
The Three Leicester City Woodgate Teams, all played brilliantly in the Peoples Cup, our Leicester City Foxes team, captained and led by Jamie Hereworth, were in the 3rd place play off but lost out by 1-0 to Delos S & L, our Leicester City Woodgate Fosse Team, captained and led by Kyle Hereworth, again competed brilliantly and got through to a 4th place play-off but again just lost out by 1-0 to Redditch Special Olympics. .
Leicester City Woodgate team finished 2nd in their group to secure a semi final place against local rivals Aylestone Park, the game finished level after extra time, so a penalty shoot out took place and LCW won 3-2 in the penalty competition with Adam Mattock in goal saving brilliantly to secure the victory.
The Final of the Peoples Cup saw Leicester City Woodgate compete against Mansfield Town who they had lost to, by 2-0 in the group stages. However the team, led by Captain, Martin Oswin made a brilliant start pressing forward and defending well, a well deserved 3-1 win saw Leicester City Woodgate lifting the Peoples Cup, a very proud moment indeed for the Club.

Diamonds Win in Tough Conditions
Leicester City Ladies Diamonds got back to winning ways with a 4-2 victory over Loughborough Foxes in some atrocious windy and rainy conditions that both sides did well to play and produce some good football in. Diamonds started well and despite the conditions knocked the ball around as well as they could. However against the run of play Loughborough Foxes took the lead with a superb shot that Jocelyn could do nothing about. The Diamonds’ heads didn’t go down though and a superb flowing move was finished off with a sweet shot by D’shayney to draw the sides level. Another flowing move followed 5 minutes later and a superb cross by Olivia C was expertly finished by Molly. At this stage there was only one team in it and D’shayney had 3 good chances to stretch the lead but she either put them wide or hit the post. These misses proved to be costly as Loughborough equalised with another good finish to undeservedly go in level at half time 2-2.

The 2nd half started and the conditions were a little bit better. The Diamonds were again quick out of the blocks and it seemed only a matter of time before they scored again. After hitting the post another 2 times Tiarna settled the nerves with a superb 25 yard finish that flew into the net. With only a 1 goal advantage the game still wasn’t won but the Diamonds continued to spurn chances. They hit the post another 2 times, to make it 6 times the post was hit in total in the match, and you felt it wasn’t going to be their day and they would get caught with a sucker punch equaliser. However the game was put to bed when Lauren chipped the keeper to make it 4-2 and finally we could relax ! Overall the girls put in a very commanding performance in difficult conditions and can now look forward to the County Cup Final on April 1st with confidence.
