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.
