LEICESTERSHIRE SENIOR LEAGUE PREMIER AT KNIGHTON LANE EAST
13 JANUARY 2018 --- 3PM
|FRIAR LANE AND EPWORTH FC|
Friar Lane and Epworth had been on the radar for a while especially with the ground sitting adjacent to the mainline railway line, indeed for any regular travellers south of Leicester you will have probably wondered at the ground. Today with the opportunity of a visit to a relative nearby there was a few options in play around Leicester and on the Friday night having seen a post from the club that barring rain the pitch would be heavy but playable something they further backed up with on Saturday morning.

|MAIN ENTRANCE WITH CHALK BOARD INFO|
Circuit was needed before acquiring todays teams from the referee Aidan Murphy to the immediate right is a small club house area and snack refreshment hatch, the main clubhouse is on the corner of Knighton Lane East but I did not have time to visit.

|THE TWO STANDS SIDE BY SIDE|
|EAST MIDLANDS TRAINS 125 DEPARTS TO THE SOUTH OF LEICESTER|
Todays murky weather would make pictures a challenge again indeed I did struggle with the obligatory match and train picture and I suppose I will have to undertake a visit again in the lighter parts of the season to enjoy this opportunity.

|THE LANE IN CONTROL|
|THE BENCHES IN ACTION|
A frustrating day for the home side on a pitch described as heavy that had held up really well to todays proceedings but for Sileby as the game wore on they became the stronger side and in the final assessment probably warranted their 3 points.
