Cloud 9 for Stroud ladies 2nd XI

Stroud ladies 2X1 started as they mean to go on with a resounding 9-0 win over Colwell & Malvern in their first league match of the season.

 They dominated throughout thanks to a strong, consistent performance, good skills and great teamwork. They held formation, passed with strength and accuracy, and communicated well.

 The first 2 goals came from strong strikes during open play, from Claire Crosthwaite and Hannah Scott.  As if that wasn’t enough to celebrate, the 3rd goal in the first half came from the new penalty corner routine, beautifully delivered by Kathy Williams.

 Second half goals came thick and fast; from Carrie Sanders, Claire Crotheswaite and 2 each for Victoria Sharpe and Nic Kelly-Davies.  Katherine Stevens put in a noteworthy performance, moving into midfield in the second half, and Steph Woodward helped the defence maintain a clean sheet for Stroud in her debut with the team. 

With great team spirit and good performances right across the field, it was a well-deserved victory.
