LCFCQ Magazine Issue 9
The fascinating personal stories behind Leicester City’s exciting vision for the future is told in Issue 9 of LCFCQ, the Club’s official quarterly magazine, which is available to buy from Sunday.
Featuring interviews with new Foxes Ayoze Pérez and James Justin, alongside Academy graduate Harvey Barnes, LCFCQ continues to uncover the lives of footballers away from the beautiful game.
Speaking to us during City’s pre-season training camp in Évian-les-Bains, former Newcastle United man Pérez provides readers with an insight into his football upbringing in his native Spain and his decision to swap his homeland for a new landscape in England, where he has become recognised as one of the Premier League’s dynamic forwards.
Elsewhere, full-back Justin – about to embark on his maiden Premier League season – takes us behind closed doors as he makes the move to Leicester from Luton, where he shone for his hometown club as the Hatters achieved promotion to the Championship last term.
Barnes, meanwhile, completes our hat-trick of interviews, as the 21-year-old from Countesthorpe reflects on his career to date, allowing LCFCQ into his home to showcase some of his treasured mementoes.
Also inside your first edition of LCFCQ for the 2019/20 season, we reveal the latest developments from the construction of the Foxes’ state-of-the art new training facility in Charnwood with exclusive imagery as the first steel frameworks start to take shape in north Leicestershire.
Meanwhile, Head Chef Gary Payne also provides an insight into the work that goes in to fuelling the Foxes players’ during their intense pre-season training regime, while Club Historian John Hutchinson takes a look at some of the Club’s most memorable kits from years gone by, which have made up the fabric of Leicester City.
Finally, we also headed to the Club’s annual pre-season media day earlier this month, a hive of activity at City's current Belvoir Drive training ground, to provide members of the Blue Army with an in-depth look at a key date of the close-season calendar they don’t usually get to see.
