Leicester City women opened their season away to Aston Villa defeated 1-2 in the end after taking the lead from a Natasha Flint goal making her an historical figure in the history of LCFC Women.
Four players were given their debuts. Abbie McManus, Georgia Brougham, Molly Pike and Jess Sigsworth. Leicester did start cleverly but had to see their first game ending pointless, again a grand experience and hopefully wins and points will come in the games coming up.Embed from Getty Images
Jonathan Morgan fielded the team in a 3-5-2 set up, and hopefully he will get this moving on in the next game coming up against Manchester United on the 12th of September.
You can as always follow up on all these games from our season page.
Leicester City fielded a team with Kirstie Level in goal, signed from Everton before last season doing her 2nd season for the club, with the 24 year old being the ultimate first choice. Abby Marie McManus picked up a yellow as one of three players to get booked in the away team.
With the two others ending in the book of the ref, Tierney and Brougham, seeing all three in the back getting a yellow. Barker, Cain and Bailey-Gayle were all substituted with Devlin, Howard and Paul coming in.Embed from Getty Images
Surprised to see Ashely Plumptre on the bench as she was a pivotal player for the team last season with the Nigerian international hopefully getting back in.
The full line-up, Level, McManus, Brougham, Tierney, Barker, Pike, O’Brien, Sigsworth, Flint, Cain, Bailey-Gayle
Subs: Devlin, Howard, Paul
Leicester City are of course not a favorite this season with Aston Villa Allen and Mayling settling a comfortable win for the team coached by Carla Ward.
We will as always follow up on events taking place going forward, and hopefully Leicester City will be interesting to follow as a number of these players really can get into a brighter frame.
