Leicester City Women Football Club

Development Centre: Awards Evening

Over 200 players, coaches and parents arrived at the Marriott Hotel in Leicester on Friday evening as Leicester City Women’s Development Centre came together to celebrate another fantastic season.

The evening was another tremendous success as the Foxes ended their second season with another brilliant set of results including the Under 10’s and 12’s both winning cup competitions and the Under 14’s – managed by LCWFC Captain Holly Morgan and Kei Gumbs – won the league title.

Having expanded from 4 teams to 6 at the start of this season, The Development Centre continues to showcase some fantastic budding talent and is set to expand even further for the upcoming 2018/19 season. With teams for Under 9’s, Under 11’s and Under 18’s joining the already successful set-up. If your interested in trialling for any of our teams next season, head to lcwfc.com/trials to register your interest. The trials will be held on Saturday 9th June.

Leicester City Women FC would also like to thank Under 12’s Manager Marcus Benjamin who announced last night that he would be leaving his position following the end of the season.
