Ladies 1st XI Continue Great Start to the Season

Stroud Ladies’ first team, sponsored by Ecotricity, showed their mettle today against a good Cirencester team.  Having lost their captain, Karen Willsher, recently due to injury, they could be forgiven for having a bad game after a bit of a reshuffle.  The ladies, however, showed that they are true sportswomen today, playing some great hockey under a new captain, Jade O'Connell.  After a rather rough start, the ladies worked well as a team, putting Cirencester under a great deal of pressure.  Some lovely transfers across the back line, and great work by the midfield and forwards, resulted in a lovely goal by Lucy Moir, followed closely by a 2nd from Claire Crosthwaite.  A short corner routine by Stroud gave them a third goal, slotted in by Angharad Roberts, then a pass into the D gave Stroud a fourth goal, again from Lucy Moir.  Cirencester played well, but they only managed to break through Stroud once to score a goal.  There was a lot of work put in by everyone to keep Cirencester in their own half, and Stroud showed the skills they have been practising in training.  Continuous hard work from all the ladies made this such a good game to play and in which to work hard.  There was 100% effort from everyone involved, even when we were a player down.  So, a big thank you to Karen Willsher for all the hard work she has put in over the years, and congratulations to Jade O'Connell for stepping up to the mark.  Well done ladies !
