U21s - Fulham 1 Leicester City 3

Report and Images by Kate Thompson

The Development Squad were playing Fulham at their training ground and, because we didn’t have a first team match, I decided to go.  The ground was in deepest Surrey, at a place called Motspur Park.  The City team included two members of the first team squad, Tom Lawrence and Anthony Knockaert, and I understood that the Fulham team also had two players who had featured in their first team.  Just before the game started, I was joined by another Leicester fan, who had cycled over from Wimbledon.

Before they scored, the City team looked better than Fulham; their passing was crisper and they made some good moves.  The first goal came as early as the 6th minute and was scored by Jak McCourt, and Harry Panayiotou scored a second only three minutes later.  It was all Leicester at this stage and they looked as if they could score at will, but as the first half wore on they seemed to rest on their laurels a bit and allowed Fulham back into the game. It was therefore no surprise when they reduced the arrears in the 36th minute, scored by one of their first team players, Patrick Roberts.

Going to Manchester City ?

The stadium is located in the North East of Manchester.

From the South M6:
Leave the M6 at Junction 19 and follow the A556 towards Stockport and then join the M56 going towards Stockport. Continue onto the M60 passing Stockport and heading on towards Ashton Under Lyne. Leave the M60 at Junction 23 and take the A635 towards Manchester. Branch off onto the A662 (Ashton New Road) towards Droylsden and Manchester. Stay on the A662 for around three miles and you will reach the Stadium on your right.

From The M62:
Leave the M62 at Junction 18 and then join the M60 Ashton Under Lyne.  Leave the M60 at Junction 23 and take the A635 towards Manchester. Branch off onto the A662 (Ashton New Road) towards Droylsden/Manchester. Stay on the A662 for around three miles and you will reach the Stadium on your right. 

 You could also try leaving the M60 at Junction 24 and take the A57 (Hyde Road) towards Manchester. Turn right onto the A6010 (Pottery Lane). There are quite a number of unofficial car parks on both sides of Pottery Lane, costing around £5 per car. Pottery Lane becomes the Alan Turing Way and goes right past the stadium on your left.

Car Parking:
There is some parking available at the stadium itself which costs £10 per car. The East Car Park is nearest to the away entrance. Please be aware that there is a residents only parking scheme in place in the streets near to the ground, which extends about a mile out from the stadium. So if you want to street park, it means parking further away and then walking to the stadium.

Wednesday Night at the King Power Stadium

With no first team home game for a 6 week period, there is a chance to get a Leicester City fix at the King Power Stadium this Wednesday (25 February), 7pm kick off.

There is a bonus for all Season Ticket Holders (and registered Grass Roots clubs) who can gain free entry* to the FA Youth Cup Quarter-Final against Birmingham City. There will also be free parking at the stadium for the game.

City’s youth team beat Wigan in the third round and Chesterfield in the fourth round at home and then gained a 2-0 victory away to a highly-rated Southampton side at St Mary’s Stadium.

Whoever wins the tie, which will be decided on the night, either after 90 minutes, extra-time or penalties, will face the winners of Manchester City vs. Crewe Alexandra or Arsenal next month. 

So why not take the opportunity to see potential LCFC stars of the future.

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: Soul and memories

Favourite match played by your team & why: Beating Man U on penalties in the FA cup semi-final 2009 because it was the first time at Wembley with my son and the nearest we have been to winning anything in his lifetime (or at least living memory as he was only 2 in 1995) and it was beating Man U, which always feels good.

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Alan Ball (you never forget your childhood heroes), with big Dunc a close second.

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Mo Besic. Despite having an unfortunate first touch in English football (against Chelsea, youtube it if you can’t remember it) he is overflowing with confidence and commitment.
