Unprecedented Day of Hockey for Stroud

Saturday proved to be an historic day for Ecotricity-sponsored Stroud Hockey Club, all 6 teams winning with a net result of 37-2, a veritable rugby score !  The Ladies’ 1st XI secured a 5-0 away win to take them into 3rd spot, whilst the Ladies’ 2nd XI gained their 3rd League victory of the season with a convincing 4-1 victory.  The Men’s U16 Badgers started relatively slowly away to Sherborne, but invested their 1-0 lead well to come out 6-0 winners with 2 goals from Andrew Reader and one apiece from Alex Richards, Danny Sopp, Jamie Penmore and Seb Wathen.  The Men’s 1st XI took Bridgend apart at home, 6-0, helped by captain Alex Waring’s hat trick, thus placing them 2nd in North 1.  The Men’s 2nd XI cruised to a 12-0 win away to Cleevillians A, Calum Norman claiming a hat trick in a match with six different scorers.  This leaves Stroud 4 points clear at the top of HG1 after six League games.

It was a fine way to start the Guy Fawkes Day celebrations which culminated in a social event at The Crown and Sceptre.  A marvellous hog roast and explosive firework display were a fitting tribute to a fine day’s hockey and a good way to celebrate Rob Waite’s 30th birthday.
