Leicester’s U.21 team was in action on the 19th of July in a friendly away to Leamington FC. A goal from Tawanda Maswanhise secured a draw against this team from the Southern League Premier Central.
Leicester fielded a strong team, having Lewis Brunt as captain and also seeing Ben Nelson in the starting line-up. Tawanda Maswanhise is one player to watch, being involved in the first team for the first friendly this summer playing Peterborough, as the new manager Enzo Maresca hopefully will see his potential.
Leicester took the lead early 2nd half, but 10 minutes before the end Leamington FC leveled as the game ended in a 1-1 draw. From the Leamington FC report it was a well worth pre-season exercize for both parties.
Leicester had four unnamed trialists in their team, coming on 2nd half, as well as two full internationals, Brendon Cover (Jamaica) and Deniche Hill (Bermuda).
