ICA Sports FC Match Preview, sponsored by Target HR and MD Flooring
ICA Sports FC vs. Peterborough Sports Dev
The Azzurri host Peterborough Sports Development tomorrow afternoon, for their 13th PDFL Premier Division match of the season.
"The Turbines" Development side changed their name from Peterborough Sports Reserves for this season and contain a combination of graduates from the Club's youth setup interspersed with some more experienced heads. A number of those youth graduates are former "ICA Foxes" players, which was an elite development association between ICA Sports and Leicester City FC that trained weekly and played matches against football league and EPL academy sides.
The Peterborough Sports first-team play Chorley in the FA Cup 3rd qualifying round tomorrow at 12:30, so ICA agreed to delay this kick-off by one hour to allow their opponents the opportunity to support their Club at the furthest point they've reached in the competition.
The Azzurri remain at 14th place in the PDFL Premier division table on 7 points after last week's defeat, with today's opponents on 23 points from their 10 matches and sitting at 5th; having only lost once in the PDFL this season.
New signing Jason Cook comes straight into the Azzurri squad and for the first time this season, there are no more than two changes to the starting 11.
