Youth Cup exit

Aylestone Park progress in qualifying

28 September 2021

Our youngsters exited the FA Youth Cup at the second qualifying round stage with a 3-2 defeat against Aylestone Park.

In front of a crowd of 322 at Meadow Lane, the visitors flew out of the traps and took an early three-goal lead thanks to a good finish from William Warren and two penalties from Aaron Nuttall.

Hope was restored before the break when Isaac Sijuade scored from close range and the comeback appeared to be on when substitute Archie Brown got our second from inside the six-yard box shortly after the break.

But we were unable to find the all-important third goal as the Leicester side progressed on a damp evening at the Lane.

Starting XI: Finley Wilkinson, Glory Amoah, Neo Saunders, Daniel Adiefeh, Archie Aves, Ashaiah Fearon, Isaac Sijuade, Brad McGregor, Lucien Mahovo, Madou Cisse, Luther Munakandafa

Subs: Josh King, Archie Brown, Charlie Gill, Solomon Miles, Harrison Iwunze, Maxwell Gaddi
