NOTICES OF MOTION

SPORTING ACHIEVEMENTS

 

Proposed by Councillor O’Donnell, seconded by the Councillor Dr Barton:

 

“Leicester City Council is proud of the outstanding achievements of all our sports stars and teams. For many of our citizens, Leicester City Football Club’s victory in the FA Cup Final was the highlight f a difficult and anxious year. A year in which Leicester has endured lockdown and additional restrictions for almost the entire time. The achievements of Leicester’s sporting heroes and heroines have raised local spirits in an otherwise dark time and raised the profile of our city in positive way. Highlights incude Mark Selby’s nerve-jangling winning frame, the excitement of Leicester City Women’s FC receiving their trophy, and Youri Tielemans’ rocket of a goal followed by Kasper Schmeichel’s breath-taking save to win the FA Cup.

 

Leicester City Council congratulates our sports men and women on their various achievements and offers them our gratitude on behalf of the city: -

           

Mark Selby, World Snooker Champion for the fourth time

 

Leicester City Women’s Football Club, FA Women’s Championship winners for 2020-2021, securing   promotion to the FA Women’s Super League

           

Leicester Riders, British Basketball League Champions 2021

 

Leicester Rugby Football Club, The Tigers, finalists in the European Challenge Cup, only narrowly beaten

 

Leicester City Football Club, FA Cup Winners 2021

 

Leicester City Council also commends all our sports clubs, both elite and grass roots, for the work they do, win or lose, to support our communities, whether providing activities for young people, fundraising for good causes, volunteering, promoting equalities, and promoting community cohesion. For example:

            Leicester City in the Community

            The Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha Foundation

            Leicester Tigers Foundation

            Leicester Riders Foundation

            Leicester Cricket Club Foundation

Leicester City Hockey Club’s work experience partnership with Ellesmere College

 

On behalf of our citizens, Leicester City Council offers our hearty congratulations to all those celebrating success and thanks all our sports clubs for their positive contributions to life in the city.”
