Loughborough University 2 - 1 Hinckley AFC
A very youthful looking Atletico earned a credible narrow defeat away to Midland Premier Loughborough University in the Leicestershire Challenge Cup.

With 5 Under 18 players making their debut on the night, Jaydn Kettle, Luke Newton, Will Dunlop, Riley Bryant and Bobby Hextall, it was always going to be a learning curve against a reputable footballing side such as Loughborough Uni, but the team was never out of their depth even if the Uni were the better side on the night. In fact AFC took a shock early lead with Joe McLaughlin heading Hinckley's opener in the 6th minute. The Uni hit back in the second half with two excellent goals, first from Dan Hanson as he fired from the edge of the box through a crowd of players and the ball crept inside the post as Jacob Wood couldn't get enough on the ball to keep it out. Then player of the match scored the goal of the night as Jeremiah Dasaolu received the ball with his back to goal on the left edge of the penalty area, quickly turned past one defender, took the ball past a second then blasted the ball into the top right corner of the net from 12 yards Wood having no chance to stop it.
