FC SHOEMAKERS 09 1-4 ADDIES Sunday 18th November 2012 Leicester Sunday League Division 1 Braunstone Park [pitch 3], Cort Crescent, Leicester
With nothing going on a Sunday morning decided to walk down to Braunstone Park to watch one of the three games going on.
For anyone that has not seen the now defunct FC Braunstone Victoria or one of the Leicester & District League sides that use the pitches on a Saturday, there are four railed off pitches adjacent to Cort Crescent going north to south.
This was a decent game played in glorious sunshine, with the visitors deserving their victory. They created and missed numerous chances in the 1st half but went in at the break one up through a penalty.
Addies added three more, helped by some dodgy defending before two penalty kicks for Shoemakers. The first one saw the Addies keeper bring down a home player in the box and was lucky to receive only a yellow card. He then made a flying save to rub salt into the wound. A minute later and Shoemakers were awarded another penalty and this time the kick ended in the back of the net.
