Leicester make home at Holmes

Leicester make home at Holmes - 2 Sep 2011 - Women's Football NewsLeicestershire & Rutland County FA and Leicester City Football Club have moved to strengthen their relationship for the development of Women's and Girls' football throughout the county. 
As part of the ongoing partnership between the two parties, Leicester City Women will play all of their Premier League home fixtures at Holmes Park for the 2011-12 season, providing an opportunity to showcase elite women's football, while allowing the County FA to drive its development plans for the women's game.
Leicester City Women narrowly missed out on promotion to the top tier of the FA Women's Premier League last season, finishing third in the Northern Division. They have also started the new season strongly, with wins in their first two games ahead of their switch to Holmes Park.
Leicester City Women, with the support of the Leicestershire & Rutland CFA, has recently been awarded an FA Girls Centre of Excellence Licence for a further term (one of only thirty in the country), having retained the high standard of criteria required. With a dedicated development team, an ambitious Leicester City team and Centre of Excellence confirmed, the county has a fantastic opportunity to become one of leading areas for women's football in the country.
Gareth Roberts, CEO at the County FA, said: "We are committed to raising standards and the continuous development of Women's and Girls' football across the two counties.
"This partnership will provide unique and exclusive access that, used in the right way, can only benefit players and coaches in this area."
Craig White from Leicester City Women's Football Club said: "We realise our role in building awareness and profile around the sport and we will work closely with the County FA to ensure we deliver on that objective.
"The team are really excited about playing their home games at Holmes Park and hope that this will contribute to a successful season and to securing Super League status in the near future."
Leicester's first home fixture at Holmes Park will be on 11 September against Blackburn Rovers, kick off 2pm.
