Hard earned win for Ladies 1st XI

After a good win for the ladies they hoped to keep the impressive work up against Avonmouth.

A solid start meant that despite Avonmouth attacking the D they where unable to get past Strouds solid defence of Aleasha Holder, Becky Stevens, Sarah Tudor and Angharad Roberts.

With Stroud gaining possession they passed the ball around and used some of the skills that have been practiced in training.

Several attacks on Avonmouth’s goal led to short corners but the ladies where unable to get a shot on goal. With the midfields and forwards keeping the ball, Avonmouth's frustration started to show and Claire Crosthwaite was able to score the first goal. 

Debbie Ratcliffe, Julie Whiting and Kate Davies had several more attempts before Julie was able to score the second goal of the match.

After this the important thing was to keep hold of the ball and prevent Avonmouth from getting hold of it. Some brilliant work in the middle of the pitch by Karen Whitehead, Karen Willsher, Elaine Noone and Hattie White allowed Stroud to maintain possession and keep cool until the final whistle.

With a final score of 2-0 the Stroud Ladies 1XI are currently top of their division.
