Stroud M2 Consolidate their Second Spot

Stroud Men’s 2nd XI, sponsored by Ecotricity, consolidated their second position in the table with a hard-fought 5-2 victory over hard-hitting Gloucester B on Saturday.  They started in a workmanlike fashion and were 2-0 up within 20 minutes, Craig Wathen starting the ball rolling with a classy solo run and finsih.  The visitors clawed a goal back and a nervous few minutes had to be overcome, the previous 7-6 victorious encounter still fresh in the minds.  Ben Orme got on the scoresheet, as did Nick Hitchcroft from a short corner.  Rob Fynn sauntered up from sweeper to force the ball over the line late into the second half.  Stroud needed to keep their wits about them throughout the match.  This they did, and with Lansdown A losing, Stroud are now securely ensconced in second spot, 4 points needed from the last 3 games to guarantee that position.
