Good start to the league for the Ladies 1XI

Stroud Ladies 1XI   6     -    BAC   1 

After some good pre-season matches the Ladies 1st team came away with the first league win. Despite the hot and unusually warm weather of the day both sides looked strong. Right from the beginning though Stroud looked to dominate the game, some strong passes and good runs meant that forwards and midfield spent a lot of the match in BACs half.

The first goal was well worked, using triangle passing up the side of the pitch and then a cross into the goal from Claire Crosthwaite allowed Angharad Roberts to sweep the ball straight into the goal. 2 more goals followed quickly from Karen Willsher with one of these occurring from a short corner. A hat-trick was then completed by Claire Crosthwaite as for two of the goals she worked with Grace Cullinane, Elaine Noone, Debbie Ratcliffe, Carrie Sanders and Sarah Tudor up the pitch, Claire's third goal however was a one-on-one with the goalkeeper!

Solid work from the defence, Stroud welcomed back Sarah Thomas who worked well with the ladies newest addition Sarah Mace. Becky Stevens had some fantastic clearances, and Aleasha Holder saved a couple of goals using techniques that have been practiced in training.

Many thanks go to Rich McColl as the Ladies Coach for providing support and help during the game and for picking up on some things to work on in training.
