Hodson late strike sends the Panthers through to the next round of the cup
After a year away from participating due to a shortage of players the "original" Kibworth Panthers have risen again and are now playing in the Under 12 age group. A keen recruitment drive has attracted five new additions from Great Glen and they have joined some of the boys who played two years ago in forming a talented squad.
The season started this week with a very tough League Cup tie away at Narborough Foxes which saw the Panthers run out eventual 3-2 winners. After going behind against the run of play it took the previous week's goalscorers Jamie Green (2) twice equalising and Cameron Hodson scoring the winner with 4 minutes left to leave the Kibworth boys jubilant.
After ending the first half a goal behind the Panthers showed a fantastic work ethic and real togetherness in what should have been a much more convincing victory had it not been for the opposition keeper who had a brilliant game, without him the game would have been more comfortable for the players and coach especially!
A very promising start to the season.
Our league campaign starts at home to Birstall on 10/9/17 with a 12.30 kick off.
