Leicester hold successful tournament

Leicester hold successful tournament - 3 Jun 2009 - Women's Football NewsTeams travelled from afar to take part in the Leicester City Under-14 and Under-16 Centre of Excellence seven-a-side tournament held at the Walkers Stadium on Sunday May 31st.
.
The teams taking part were Bristol Academy, Fulham, Hampshire, Leicester City, Manchester, Lincoln and Nottingham Forest. All teams entered A and B sides for both age groups.
 
On a glorious day the Under-14s teams kicked off the morning session with some splendid football to delight a large crowd, of course there was no competition for this age group because of the FA ruling but the winner was football.
 
The Under-16 teams started the afternoon session in the competition with their A and B sides competing to a high standard of soccer with the pace fast and furious on the Walkers' splendid surface. The four teams to reach the semi final stage were Leicester City and Hampshire - the Foxes just shading it 2-1 with two goals from Kirsty Linnett, Jade Yates replying for Hampshire - while the other semi final brought together Bristol Academy's A and B sides, the A side going through 4-0 with a hat-trick from Ellie Curzon and a Chloe Tape goal.
 
The final produced a scintillating contest between Leicester City A and Bristol Academy A with chances being created at both ends and both teams producing some excellent football. The game went into extra time with the Golden Goal rule coming into play but with penalties looming, City's skipper, and England Under-17 international, Kirsty Linnett fired home the winner to give Leicester the trophy.
 
The presentations were made by Leicester City and England Under-19 player Remi Allen, who came up through the City C of E ranks.
 
All teams must be congratulated for playing the game in the spirit of football. Teams, parents and officials all thought it was a great day and Leicester are hoping to stage the tournament again next year.
