Solid Start in the League for M2

It was the 1st league game of the season for the Ecotricity sponsored Stroud mens 2nd team against an experienced Cirencester B side. Stroud started slowly in a frustrating first half with Cirencester stopping Stroud from playing their usual quick passing game. Nevertheless Stroud took a 1-0 lead into half time.
The second half performance was much improved. Quicker, shorter passing and a higher work rate off the ball opened up the tiring Cirencester defence and will and in truth the score could have been higher as the match drew to a close.
A period of dominance in the second half effectively closed the game off with three goals in quick succession from Ben Orme, Tom Sharpe and Steve Shipp. A consolation goal from Cirencester was quickly answered with another Stroud goal. The defence looked solid with notable performances from Andy Murray and man of the match Ben Drury who has stepped up to the 2nd team with ease, showing much promise for the season.
