L2 Stay Up


 This was the finest performance of the Stroud Ladies 2nd team this season; the impeccable marking by all the players was outstanding.  They stuck to their players like limpets and Lansdown couldn’t even find a barnacle sized space to fire on goal.  The fabulous marking is proven by the fact that the Lansdown goal came from a short corner in the dying seconds of the match.

 Stroud’s forwards controlled the ball well and despite the Lansdown ‘triangles’ formation they found sufficient space to move the ball cleanly, accurately and with pace.

 Carrie Sanders scored both goals, the first coming from open play with a fabulous move up the left initiated by Kathy Williams and the second in the most perfectly executed short corner of this season.  The Lansdown team was at a loss to know which of Stroud’s forwards would touch the ball next – the routine involved 5 players!

 Last season both Lansdown and Stroud were promoted to Severn 2 and both teams knew that this was the ‘relegation’ play-off match and on the day the Stroud team showed its true mettle and the victory was sweet indeed!
