U15s Pick Up Leicester Win

Second half fightback secures vital victory

9 March 2018

Colchester United's U15s staged a stirring comeback at Leicester City to give themselves a great chance of qualifying from the Premier League Floodlit Cup group stages.

They fell two behind against the Foxes in the first three minutes - and also missed a first half penalty - but scored one just before half time to give themselves hope in the game.

They eventually got the goals they needed in the final quarter of the match, to run out 4-2 winners.

That moves them onto ten points in the group and now they await the outcome of the Norwich City and Arsenal game next week to see who progresses to the knockout stages.
