Bottesford FC pipped in Leics FA county cup final

Bottesford’s double dream was derailed by title rivals Ravenstone United last Thursday evening.

The North Leicestershire League sides met in the County FA Saturday Trophy final at Holmes Park where United edged the contest 2-1.

Incredibly the sides met less than 48 hours later in a top-of-the-table clash in Division One. Bottesford will be happier of the two sides with Saturday’s 1-1 draw, and can move above United when they meet again on Saturday in the return fixture at Belvoir Road. Kick-off 2pm.

Bottesford are third, a point behind second-placed Ravenstone, and five points behind leaders Castle Donington, but with two games in hand.
