Leicester Sunday League Summer Competition Grp B
Guthlaxton College, Station Road, Wigston
My first game of the 2012/13 football season, but for these two teams this will be round 5 in this competition that started back in May, with fixtures resuming last week after a break in June. I did go and watch a game in the opening round of matches which was between these two sides - Charnwood won 3-1 @ Brockington College in Enderby.
The results so far in Group B are as follows:
13/05: AFC Sporting Charnwood 3-1 EMR
20/05: AFC Sporting Charnwood 2-4 Shakespeare; EMR 2-4 Kilby Town
27/05: Kilby Town 1-3 AFC Sporting Charnwood; EMR 0-4 Shakespeare
01/07: Shakespeare 3-2 EMR; AFC Sporting Charnwood 1-3 Kilby Town
|3||AFC Sporting Charnwood||4||2||0||2||9||9||6|
This game was played on the artificial surface at Guthlaxton College and was an entertaining game I will likely to see all season. Both teams were intent on attacking from the start and it took only a few minutes for the opening goal. This came from the visitors from Shepshed, but by the end of the half the game had turned in the favour of EMR who led 3-1. The second half continued in the same attacking vain and five further goals were scored.
