Leicester has been big news recently with Leicester City Football Club winning the Premiership for the first time in it’s clubs history. There weren’t many who thought it possible and even Gary Lineker was reduced to his underpants on Match of the Day following his promise that should Leicester ever win the title, he would present the show in the nude!

So how much to really know about this club now it has been pushed into the limelight? Nicknamed the Foxes due to the area being known for foxes and fox hunting, the club was founded in 1884 as Leicester Fosse F.C, after the playing field they used on Fosse /Road. They joined the Football League in 1894 and changed their name to Leicester City in 1919.

Bookmakers had never paid out so much as they did when Leicester took the title. The club’s previous highest rank was second in Division One in 1929! Some have described it as the best football fairy-tale ever told. If you run a Leicester business and want a Premiership League standard website then consider Leicester Web design.

Jamie Vardy was the star of the show and broke the Premier League record for consecutive games scored in, scoring 13 goals in 11 games for Leicester in 2015. On May 16th 2016, 240,000 Leicester fans poured onto the streets of the city to celebrate this historic victory.  Jamie Vardy plays as a striker but also as a winger. He began his senior career with Stocksbridge Park Steels, joining the first team in 2007, before leaving for F.C Halifax in 2010. During his debut season he scored 26 goals and won the Player’s Player of the Year award. He won this award again at Fleetwood Town after scoring 31 league goals for the club in 2011. Vardy joined Leicester in 2012 and due to the part he played in Leicester’s incredible success, has been awarded Premier League Footballer of the Season and FWA Footballer of the Year.

Things may not be so easy for the club now as it is deemed easier to win a title than it is to retain it and the big boys of English Football will be looking to take back the crown. If the players can’t handle the pressure of being champions and the strains of also competing in Europe, then there may be trouble ahead. Thankfully, Vardy is staying put but if others start to dream about playing for the giants, could the team fall apart?
