Security Provision Strengthened From Manchester United Game

Supporters are advised to arrive early (turnstiles open at 4pm), well in advance of kick-off at 5.30pm, to allow time for additional security measures that will be in place inside and around King Power Stadium. It is recommended that supporters avoid bringing bags wherever possible, as enhanced searches will be taking place at all entrances to the stadium. 

Furthermore, to ensure stadium security is not compromised during the match and future fixtures, the Club asks for supporters’ cooperation with a strict NO READMISSION policy, meaning exits will not be opened to access smoking areas at any time. Supporters are reminded that King Power Stadium is a no smoking venue, including e-cigarettes.

A moment in history

Newcastle 0 City 3

Report by Kate Thompson

I’m not normally a pessimist but my hopes were not high on a trip to a ground where we have not apparently won for 15 years, and last season saw arguably one of our poorest performances against a Newcastle side who couldn’t win for toffee.  But I should have known that this team is made of sterner stuff!

For most of the first half we were clearly in the ascendancy but with nothing to show for it, and as the half drew towards its end there was always the fear that Newcastle would nick a goal and we would have no answer.  The only change to the team was Ulloa in for Schlupp; Vardy recovered sufficiently from the knock that kept him out of the England games although he didn’t look 100% fit. 

But still, a Vardy operating at a slower pace is still a match for many defenders and so it proved.  In the time added on at the end of the first half, Ulloa slid a lovely ball into him and he left the sole defending player for dead and coolly slotted his tenth consecutive goal, thus equalling the record set by Van Nistelrooy 12 years ago. 

Vardy later paid tribute to the physiotherapists who had worked so hard to get him fit.  And fair play to the Newcastle fans, who applauded Vardy’s feat before booing off their team at half time.

Enjoy the Moment – Don’t Forget The Past

Above is the Premiership League Table that every LCFC fans dream of.

Yet, cast your mind back 13 years and today fans were sitting in the Kop watching Micky Adams & The Birch signing up to Foxes Trust membership, as interim Trust Board members explained to fans present the various activities the Trust were undertaking to raise money to help save the club.

A few days earlier, all the first team players had joined a Trust media launch event, where Gary Lineker signed his Trust membership forms

By February 2003, the Trust were firmly established as part of the Lineker Consortium that took the club out of administration and laid the stable foundations which made the club an attractive proposition for firstly Milan Mandaric, and subsequently King Power to take ownership of the club, with our current owners investing a level of funding which any LCFC would not have expected in our lifetimes.

Today the Trust would like to congratulate our owners, the football management and playing staff on a fantastic start to the season, while remembering the role that fans played 13 years ago.
