Tuesday 27th September
LEICESTER ROAD 5-1 COALVILLE TOWN DEVELOPMENT
Leicestershire & Rutland FA Senior Cup 1st Round
@ Leicester Road Stadium, Leicester Road, Hinckley, Leicestershire)
Attendance: around 50
I was asked my Coalville's manager if I was able to come down to take photos of this game, and this I agreed as long as it was also worth my while. What I meant by that is financial by agreeing to purchasing digital copies.
The game was fairly one sided with the home side having the better of things for the majority of the game. That said the visitors did have their moments, and took the lead with a lovely strike from the edge of the area. By half time and Leicester Road had turned things around to lead 2-1. An excellent save from a free kick early in the second half kept the scorers level, and that was as close as Coalville got. After this three more goals were scored to put a fairer reflection on the proceedings.
This was my sixth visit to this stadium, with three being for football and three for American Football.
