Leicestershire Senior League Beacon Bitter County Trophy: Friar Lane & Epworth 1 County Hall 3.

Whittier Rd, Leicester LE2 6FT

Our first visit of the season to one of our favourite clubs had an earlier than expected ending. One of the Friar Lane defenders suffered a serious neck injury just before HT and play still hadn’t got re-underway ten minutes after the second half should have started. We hate leaving any game early but with no idea when the game would re-start and Frankie having school in the morning we had to make an early dart.

It had been a decent first half with County Hall clearly the better side and holding a 2-0 lead when we left. We heard later on that the game had been delayed for 40 minutes whilst paramedics tended to the injured player, who thankfully made a full recovery.
